  • This is a new part of our Gesshin Kagekiyo series.  We wanted to introduce something a little more practical and make this series a bit more accessible. These knives represent some of the highest levels of craftsmanship and quality we have seen. The blacksmiths, sharpeners, and even lacquer-ware craftsmen are all amazingly skilled, as can clearly be seen by simply looking at them. In fact, all of the craftsmen are certified craftsmen or dentou-kougeishi (a very prestigious honor). These knives have amazing fit and finish, spectacular grinds, and amazing geometry. They are really thin behind the edge, have great distal taper, and wide bevels, making them easier to thin and sharpen. They come with black lacquered saya and handles featuring matte black and polished dark green lacquer.  The knives are on the very thin and relatively hard side of things.
