Gesshin Kagekiyo 210mm Ginsanko Wa-Gyuto

  • We are proud to introduce our new Gesshin Kagekiyo series. This is something we have been working on for a few months now, together with one of our partners in Japan. Sara and I are very excited to finally be able to introduce it. 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, some of the most beautiful handles and saya we've seen on Japanese knives, and amazing geometry. They are really thin behind the edge, have great distal taper, and wide bevels, making them easier to thin and sharpen. The lacquer craftsmen uses real lacquer on these, not synthetic lacquer as more commonly used. Even the boxes are beautiful lacquer-ware. We hope you guys are as excited as we are.

    Please note that there are two sets of images... we are transitioning in some new changes in the grinding and finishing, which can be reflected in the most recent pictures. They feature a faceted spine and choil area and a grind more similar to what can be seen in the white #2 and blue #1 versions. We hope you enjoy these new changes. We think they are a nice improvement.
