8A-N Series: Quenched AUS-8 Stainless Steel

Sakai Ichimonji's 8A-N Series are the knives made from AUS-8 Stainless Steel which is a popular choice for Japanese Kitchen Knives in the Western style. This steel is rust resistant and relatively easy to sharpen, making a good choice for newcomers to Japanese Knives.

Additionally, AUS-8 is considered to be slightly tougher than other Japanese Steels such as Silver #3 and VG-10, meaning that it is less likely to chip during use.

Furthermore, Sakai Ichimonji's 8A-N Series are unique due to their quenching process that improves overall performance.

Gyuto

Gyuto, literally means "Beef knife" . The Japanese did not consume beef until it began to modernise with increased Western influence in the late 1800's. During that period, when Japanese thought of Western food, they thought of giant slabs of beef being cut and grilled or stewed, thus the "Gyuto" was born.In modern times it is the most common knife in Japanese households, with also the most variety of steel,blade lengths and handle materials available.

Professionals often use in the 240mm-270mm size range. For home use, the most popular size is 180mm-210mm.

AUS-8

Stainless Steel

AUS-8 Steel is a standard stainless steel that is often used in knives due to its corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening in comparison to other steels.

Full Steel

Forging Process

A full steel blade or Mono-Steel blade means that only one type of steel has been used in its construction from spine to edge. Making knives with a single steel type requires expert attention during the manufacturing process to ensure the blade does not become overly brittle or warped. Differentiating a high quality Mono-Steel Blade from a low quality Mono-Steel blade can be quite difficult at a quick glance.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.

It has been 600 years since the birth of swordmaking in the Sakai region of Japan. Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide's and it's craftsmen continue to build on that legacy by producing the finest blades in Japan.
This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
