Made in Osaka Japan

Sakai Kikumori master artisans have handed down their expertise throughout the generations, and they are still creating beautiful and sharp knives today. This ancient tradition includes heating Shiroko, or white steel, to unimaginable temperatures and then forcing it into cold water, and takes a real craftsman to tell when the metal is ready to be worked. The impurities in the metal are hammered out, and the steel is strengthened. Each and every single knife receives the same care and attention to detail, polished and sharpened, and prove that they can cut through food with ease.

The Kamagata Usuba is a traditional Japanese knife used to cut or make thin sheets of vegetables. Unlike the Kanto version of the usuba, the kamagata usuba has a pointed tip, which allows for more delicate work. Origin: Kansai region of Japan. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.
