White Steel #1 Yew octagonal handle

Kiritsuke Yanagi

The Kiritsuke Yanagiba , is larger than a standard Yanagiba and has a more pronounced tip for a more comfortable draw. It has recently become very popular due to its beautiful shape and sharpness.

White Steel #1

Steel Material
White Steel #1 is the closest to traditional Japanese Tamahagane steel. The Steel is extremely pure , with a very high carbon content allowing for maximum edge retention.White Steel #1 is the steel type most often recommended at Sakai Ichimonji for those seeking the ultimate edge and sharpness.As a material, White Steel #1 is also very difficult to work with, requiring a significant level of skill to forge, shape, harden and temper into a usable blade.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.

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.
