What is JIZAKAI?

The “Jizakai” is a “proof of handmade craftsmanship.” There are only a few knife smiths in Sakai who can achieve the “optimal blade attachment.” Knives made from blade attachment have a “Jizakai,” a mark of the forge-welding between soft iron and steel. Occasionally, a slight gap can be seen in this Jizakai, but it is a “proof that the craftsman carefully forge-welded at low temperatures” to enhance the knife’s hardness.

As these are handmade items, the presence or absence of gaps may vary by product. Please purchase only if you understand this.


Japanese knives became much thinner as it has evolved to become sharper. However, it is much harder and more durable than many of the kitchen knives in the market as it uses high-carbon material. The key to making a thin yet strong blade is the technique of forging hard steel and soft iron together, which was developed through Japanese katana making. By combining the hard steel with more resilient and softer iron, the knife can better withstand the impact. That is why our kitchen knife is thin and sharp yet unbreakable and unbendable at the same time. It is also easy to sharpen.
As our kitchen knife is very sharp, we recommend that you use a chopping board made of unfinished soft wood. Wash, wipe, and let it dry after use to keep it clean and hygienic.
By sharpening regularly, the product lasts for a long time. Contact us for the maintenance or if you need any assistance.
