Gesshin Kagekiyo 150mm Blue #1 Kiritsuke Ko-Yanagiba

  • The Gesshin Kagekiyo knives represent some of the highest levels of craftsmanship and quality we have seen. The blacksmiths, sharpeners, and even lacquerware 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. These Ko Yanagiba were originally a special request from our friend Liwei Liao at The Joint Eatery in Los Angeles.  He uses them for sukibiki and other fish-related cleaning tasks, but we just think they are a fun small single bevel shape.
