Sakai Kikumori ‘Tomoshibi’ 150mm Deba in shirogami #2 with Japanese magnolia handle and buffalo ferrule handle.

The Tomoshibi knives are a professional quality series made for Sakai Kikumori. They are hand forged with iron and #2 shirogami (white steel) and finished by hand on wet grinders; all by skilled craftspeople at Myojin Riki Seisakusho in Kochi.

It should be mentioned that extra care is required, blade is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.

Sakai Kikumori was started in 1926 and draws on Sakai's 600 year history as the major center of traditional Japanese cutlery manufacturing. They work with a large variety of Sakai's best smiths, sharpeners and small factories to offer a wide variety of knives ranging from traditional materials and styles to more modern, western influenced styles and materials.
