  • 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. On all of our newer ones we have started polishing the spine and choil.

    Each Gesshin Hide knife comes with a sticker guaranteeing that only certified craftsmen have worked on the knife, and each knife has a unique serial number.  This is rare, even in Sakai, where these knives are made.  Only the highest quality knives receive this honor.  We have included a picture of this sticker on the product page.

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