This third generation blacksmith heralds from Takefu City, famous around the globe for the production of Eichizen Hammer Forged Knives (Eichizen Uchi-Hamono). He has earned his reputation as a maker of some of the most highly regarded and desired outdoor knives. His move into the world of kitchen cutlery has only enhanced the legend of this certified Traditional Masters Craftsman.

Saji-san has made this line of knives from the advanced powdered metallurgical steel known as R-2 or SG-2. This is an amazing steel for kitchen knives as it can be heat treated to a very high rating. The result is a blade that is easy to use and to sharpen. It holds a sharp edge and is very durable. The inner core of R-2 is then covered in a multi-layer damascus cladding made from a soft stainless steel. These are really easy knives to maintain.

 Comes in a wooden box burned with his signature kanji.

handle is buckeye burl with black buffalo horn

 

Use & Care

  • Do not attempt to cut, hit or chop frozen products or bones. The blade can chip or break with improper use.
  • Hand wash with warm water and towel dry. Never put the knife in a dishwasher, nor soak it in water. Ever!
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade. 
  • Do not use on hard melons or items that may torque the blade.
