Together with the skilled craftsmen, Yamamoto Hideaki and Yamamoto Shinichiro, we are proud to introduce Gesshin Hide. These knives represent the best of Sakai Uchihamono. From the first time I sharpened one of these knives in 2010, I knew how amazing they were. With a combination of great steel and amazing grinding, shaping, and sharpening work, these knives are easily among the best single bevel knives I have used.
This knife began as a fun project for the Gesshin Hide craftsmen. Designed after an antique vegetable and meat knife, this knife has a unique profile and geometry that I have not seen in any other knives. I believe it will work really well for working with meats due to the shape of the tip area. Anyways, we thought it was an interesting piece and decided to add it to the website.
We hope you enjoy the Gesshin Hide line, as we are extremely proud to be carrying them.
