Blue Steel #2 Magnolia Round Handle with Buffalo horn bolster

Honekiri

The Honekiri is used for cutting Hamo. Hamo is a fish often eaten in the Kansai region and is an indispensable part of Kyoto cuisine. It has many small and hard bones, so cutting through the bones cleanly is necessary. The blade is long , thick and heavy to ensure it cuts without slipping or missing small bones.

Blue Steel #2

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

Magnolia Round Handle with Buffalo horn bolster

Handle
Our Magnolia wood handles are made from natural Magnolia and Buffalo Horn ( Ethically sourced Horn ).The Magnolia and Buffalo Horn are fitted tightly together then shaped and polished in the traditional round style to not only look beautiful, but also feel comfortable in the hand.

Forge Welding

Forging Process
Forging is the main process for producing high quality blades.A craftsmen will heat a piece of Steel in a forge, and repeatedly strike it with a hammer, shaping the Steel into the desired blade shape and also at the same time refining the grain size and driving impurities out of the Steel. The blade is then hardened and later tempered to relieve stress.Forging generally produces a superior blade to the more common stamping method used by large companies.

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.
