Ginsan Steel(Silver #3) Yew octagonal handle

Fugubiki

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.

Ginsan Steel(Silver #3)

Steel Material
We use Gin-san(Gingami No.3)steel, which is a highly rust resistant steel developed by Hitachi Metals, Ltd. through their refining process that still uses Japan's time-honored metal working and tatara fumace smelting techniques.
Of the Gingami metals, which have carbon added to 12-14% chrome, Gin-san contains even greater carbon content for a harder steel.
Experts craftsmen spend long hours and use careful techniques to craft each blade. Since the metal is especially hard, the knives hold their edge for a long time and do not rust easily

Yew octagonal handle

Handle
These handles are made from Yew wood, this wood was historically used in European Longbows due to its density, strength and rot resistance. It was also used by Prince Shotoku , a regent in the Japanese Court.This wood is characterized by its beautiful grain and a color that darkens with age.

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.
