Sakai Kikumori was established in 1926. For 92 years they have devoted them selves to blade making using the most skilled craftsmen they can. We feel the fit and finish of these knives are always very high end. There is alot of attention to detail.
This line was comissioned for RSK, made by Nakagawa-San, who was a apprentice under Kenichi Shiraki at Shiraki Hamono. Where they focused on mastering Honyaki, Vg10 heat treat, and old world techniques.
His skills show in this knife, with the beautiful almost raindrop Damascus, Mirror edge, and amazing performance. This knife is a must have for any collectors or Nakagawa-san fans.
