Description

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 handcrafted, featuring ultra-thin, expertly tapered blades made from Aogami  (blue steel #1).  

Beautiful two-tone handles of true Japanese lacquer and walnut provide an exceptional grip.  Kagekiyo knives have a light feel in the hand with a perfect balance.
