Introducing

Sakai Kikumori

Sakai Kikumori was founded in 1926 by Kawamura Hamono as a wholesaler, and they work with some of the best blacksmiths in Japan. The Tomoshibi is a collaboration between Sakai Kikumori and Myojin Riki Seisakusho in Kochi prefecture, which is run by Myojin Tateo and Myojin Naohito. Naohito-San is widely recognised in Japan as one of its top sharpeners with 10 years of experience. Tateo-San is the blacksmith, and he has trained under some of Sakai's most talented smiths before establishing Myojin Riki Seisakusho.

Blade Type

The Deba knife, deeply rooted in Japanese culinary tradition, is a robust, single-bevel knife (sometimes double) primarily designed for fileting fish. Its thick, heavy blade effortlessly glides through fish bones and joints, while preserving delicate flesh. Ideal for seafood preparation, the Deba is a staple in Japanese kitchens for its precision and strength.

Steel Type

White Steel is the purest of the Japanese high -carbon steels made by Hitachi Metals. It can be forged to extremely high hardness, sharpened extremely easily (even for novices), and takes a scalpel like edge with ease. Being this pure and lacking any stainless properties, this steel is very reactive and will rust quickly if not dried after use, and oiled between uses.

Recommended Maintenance
