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 is a nice medium height, distal taper, rounded choil. This line is made by famous blacksmith Yoshikazu Tanaka. His knives are very coveted because of heat treat, performance, and appearance.
The Aogami Super line is new for us. Incredibly thin behind the edge, beautiful wide bevels, with Kasumi finish, and a awesome polish on the exposed core steel.
