Santoku

Santoku are typically used in households around Japan. It is the quintessential all-purpose knife. Santoku's were developed by combining the best features of a Japanese knife and a Western knife.

VG1

Stainless Steel

VG1 stainless steel is a high quality steel that has been used extensively in knife making. It features a high hardness and is manufactured with advanced steel making techniques, resulting in a steel with low impurities.
It can be a little difficult to sharpen but will hold its edge for longer than some other steels so it is recommended for people after a blade that will stay sharp for longer.

Clad

Forging Process : The cladding method

This method of knifemaking involves forge welding two or more pieces of steel together. The inner core steel is extremely hard, while the outer layer steel is softer and more durable. Most Damascus steel knives available on the market today are made using this method. It allows craftsmen to produce beautiful and well performing blades at a reasonable cost.

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.
