  • 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. The spines and choils are also nicely rounded and polished.

    The Kiritsuke is a knife that combines the functionality of a yanagiba and usuba. It can be used for the tasks that either of those knives is well suited for. However, it is not an all purpose chefs knife. 

    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.
