Nakiri

A Nakiri knife is a double edged , rectangular shaped knife mainly used in Japanese households for chopping vegetables. The shape of the blade allows for your cut to go straight down to the cutting board, eliminating the rocking motion of other knives.

ZA-18

Stainless Steel

ZA-18 is a modern Japanese Stainless Steel used exclusively for knifemaking. The steel has high concentration of Cobalt, making it harder and more corrosion resistant than many other steels available on the market today. It has fast become the knife steel of choice for kitchen knife enthusiasts around the world.

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.
