Hon Kasumiyaki is a traditional blade construction style for single-bevel knives, hand-forged in the age-old tradition of sword making from two steel pieces. The Sakai Ichi Kasumiyaki series represents the pinnacle of quality, making it the perfect choice for chefs seeking superior craftsmanship.

Crafted from Gin-san, also known as Ginsanko, a high-performance stainless steel, Sakai Ichi master blade-smiths employ a fusion of traditional forging methods and contemporary techniques. By infusing Carbon, Chromium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon for strength, they produce knives that sharpen effortlessly and maintain their edge. Gin-San's user-friendly nature makes it a preferred blade option for single-bevel knives across all chef ranks. The Yanagi features a long, slender blade with a single bevel, making slicing sushi, sashimi, and rolls a breeze.
