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 Shirogami (white steel #2).
Beautiful handles of true Japanese lacquer provide an exceptional grip. Kagekiyo knives have a light feel in the hand with a perfect balance.
