Gyuto(Chef Knife)

Literally translated as "Beef Knife"Beef was not a staple of the traditional Japanese diet and really only fully entered Japanese cuisine in the last 100 years with the increase in Western influence.Prior to this, when Japanese thought of Western Cuisine, they pictured slabs of beef and hearty beef based dishes.Thus the Western Chef knife eventually became known as the "Gyuto" or "Beef Knife" in Japan.It is now the most common knife style in the country due to it's versatility in the kitchen. Many Gyuto now come with traditional style Japanese handles and are often between 18cm-21cm in length.

Blue Steel Super

Steel Material
Blue Super Steel is essentially Blue Steel with a significantly higher Carbon content and the addition of Vanadium and Molybdenum to increase the overall hardness and durability of the steel.This is an extremely durable steel that maintains its sharpness very well, but can be more difficult to sharpen than regular steels.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.

Optional Engraving

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.
