Our Kagekiyo line is hand forged in Sakai City, Japan by a collective of blacksmiths awarded the title Dentou Kogeshi, an honor reserved for the highest level of artisans and craftsmen. Kagekiyo knives are one hundred percent hand crafted, featuring ultra thin, expertly tapered blades made from stain resistant VG10 steel.
Beautiful two tone octagonal handles of true Japanese lacquer, provide an exceptional grip, which develops a patina through a lifetime of use. Kagekiyo knives have a llight feel in the hand with a perfect balance.
