Sakai Kikumori 10A Damascus

On our 2020 trip to Japan we decided to focus in on Sakai knife-makers to learn more of the history of knife making in this area. One knife maker we had our eyes on was Sakai Kikumori. Sakai Kikumori was established in 1926, and takes pride in the fact their area of the country is world famous for knife making.

They supply us with everything from traditional single bevel knives for sushi preparation, to double edged "western" knives, and are also famous for their water quenched honyaki knives. In April, 2011, Kawamura Hamono received the certification of this Sakai brand “ SAKAI WAZASHU”. 

AUS10A is a Japanese knife steel that is a bit harder than AUS8 due to the annealing process, but still durable and easy to sharpen. It’s metallurgy looks a little like this: C(0.95-1.10), Cr(13-14.5), Mo(0.1-0.3), V(0.1-0.25), Ni(0.49), Mn(0.5), Si(1.0), P(0.04), S(0.03).

All knives are fitted with one of our new favourite handles. These handles are octagonal burnt oak that have been lacquered to help with moisture and wear resistance.
