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.

Damascus Pattern

It is made by forging two types of steel with different hardness together. Bending and overlapping them in layers, and then polishing the blade to reveal the pattern formed. The harder steel shines, while the softer steel remains dull, creating a unique pattern on the surface that resembles wood grain. This ripple pattern is called Damascus steel and has become popular in the kitchen knife community.

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.
