Delivery times may be longer than usual

Although mail items to the United States from Japan are currently being accepted, it is expected to take more than two to three weeks to load the items that have already been accepted on airplanes to that country due to the significant reduction and suspension of flights.
We sincerely apologize that delivery will take more time than usual. It would be appreciated if you would kindly understand this situation in advance.

Made in Osaka Japan

Sakai Kikumori master artisans have to go through years of training before they are ready to create Hongasumi knives by hand. Their incredible skill means that these Hongasumi knives are amazingly sought after, as their craftsmanship and their skill cannot be beaten. Blue Steel #1 is formed from iron, and delicate and intricate ‘mist’ patterns are created on the metal. The many forging and polishing processes create a strong and powerful knife. To complete the Blue Steel knives, traditional magnolia wood handles are created in the true Japanese style, with water buffalo horn as a bolster.
