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.
