This line is made by Shiraki Hamono for Sakai Kikumori.
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 santoku is a real stunner with wide bevels, and is some of the best edge retention I have ever seen with VG-10.
