Collection: Sakai Kikumori Nihonko

On my recent trip to Japan I decided to focus in on Sakai knife-makers to learn more of the history of knife making in this area. One knife maker I had my eye 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 forge 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”.

This line of knives is a full carbon steel blade made with Hitachi SK carbon. They are super durable and a breeze to sharpen.

All knives in this line are fitted with a 3 rivet western handle for a comfortable familiar feel.

**Please note, these knives are made with high carbon steel. Refer to our carbon steel knife care for more information.

Knife specs:

Steel type: SK carbon
HRC: 61~63
Handle: Western black poly-wood
