Gesshin Hide 180mm White #2 Hon-Kasumi Santoku (Momiji)

  • 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 knives I have used (their single bevel knives are really amazing). On all of our newer ones we have started polishing the spine and choil. 

    These santoku come with hand painted sayas, which not only protect the knife when being stored, but also look awesome. Please note that the product photos we have listed below are not up to date and the item we currently have available does not have the momiji pattern on the blade. We will be updating product photos soon to reflect this change.

    We hope you enjoy the Gesshin Hide line, as we are extremely proud to be carrying them.
