  • The Gesshin Kagekiyo knives represent some of the highest level 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, and amazing geometry. They are really thin behind the edge, have great distal taper, and wide bevels, making them easier to thin and sharpen. Unlike our higher end Gesshin Kagekiyo lines, these lacquer handles are far more simple, and the sayas that come with these are normal sayas instead of lacquered sayas.  The steels are also a bit more forgiving and easier to work with.
