Gesshin Hide 180mm Blue #1 Hon-Kasumi Kamagata Usuba

  • 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.


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