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

  • 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 knives come with a hand-painted saya, which not only protects the knife when being stored, but also looks awesome. We hope you enjoy the Gesshin Hide line, as we are extremely proud to be carrying them.
