Kagekiyo knives are renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship and quality, originating from a long tradition of Japanese blade-making. Kagekiyo knives are highly valued by chefs worldwide for their sharpness, balance and durability, making them a top choice for professional and home kitchens.

Kagekiyo knives are 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 handcrafted, featuring expertly tapered blades, and finished with true Japanese lacquer handles. Forged from carbon steel, these knives are incredibly sharp and hold an edge well.

These unique  kitchen knives have a light feel in the hand with perfect balance.  Choose from gyuto, sujihiki, or petty knives. Select blade lengths ranging from 5.9 inches up to 10.5 inches.

We recommend purchasing a saya to protect your new knife at the same time to ensure a perfect fit.
