Wa-Santoku

A Wa-Santoku is typically used in households around Japan. Unlike the standard Santoku, the Wa-Santoku has a traditional Japanese handle which shifts the balance point slightly,allowing more nimble cutting.

Blue Steel #2

Carbon Steel

Blue Steel #2 contains a small amount of Tungsten, improving hardness and Chromium, improving toughness. This results in a steel that has higher overall edge retention and hardness in comparison to the White Steels.



*NOTE: The Carbon Steel is susceptible to rust if it is not properly cared for. Please clean and dry the blade regularly during use.

Walnut Handle

Handle

This handle is made of Walnut, which is light and easy to work with. In Western Society, Walnut is commonly used for cutting boards,furniture and Gun Stocks due to its natural beauty and strength.

Forge Welded

Forging Process

A forge welded blade is essentially a blade made of more than one billet of steel. There are many variations of technique and steel combinations. At its most simple, a forge welded blade is two billets of steel heated and hammer together to form one unified piece. The steel will then be shaped by hammer into the desired blade shape. Hardened and tempered, then ground, sharpened and polished. A forge welded blade has higher strength and edge retention than a stamped blade.

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.
