The Wa-Gyuto is a Western Chef knife with a traditional Japanese handle, ideal for Japanese chefs who are more accustomed to this unique shape.
Blue Steel #1
Blue Steel #1 has a higher concentration of Tungsten and Chromium than Blue Steel #2 , resulting in a sharper blade.Many Blue steel knives at Sakai Ichimonji will feature a traditional "Hamon" or Wave like pattern defining the harder steel from the softer steel.NOTE* This is a Carbon Steel , which means it is susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. Please clean and dry the blade regularly in between use.
Urushi Finish Handle
The entire surface of the handle is covered in traditional Japanese Urushi lacquer and then accented with Kuro-Ro lacquer and reinforced with Brass.This handle is stronger and more resistant to water damage than regular Magnolia handles. These handles are also extremely beautiful.
Optional Engraving Service
Sakai Ichimonji provides complimentary engraving using either Japanese Kanji or English Alphabet. Please specify your preference. For details, please visit here
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.
