The Fugu Hiki knife is suitable for thinly slicing fish, including puffer fish.For this reason, the blade is sharpened much thinner than a willow-blade knife, and the width of the blade is narrower and lighter, making it a knife that pursues only sharpness.

Blue Steel #1

Forged with Aoko#1 steel (Yasugi steel) that contains iron and tungsten (for hardness), chromium (for tenacity) and alloy carbide (for hardness).
Aoko#1 steel has more carbon content than the classic Aoko#2, making it harder, with better performance and longer lasting usage.
A knife with superbknife edge holding performance.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.

It has been 600 years since craftsmen began making swords in Sakai, Japan.
This technology has been passed down to the present day and has fostered Japan's food culture. 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.
