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 knife is just incredible. It performs great, the edge lasts, its very lightweight and nimble, and its defiantly beautiful. This line is made by famous blacksmith Yoshikazu Tanaka. His knives are very coveted because of heat treat, performance, and appearance.
