Japanese knives 2

Japanese knives
Most Japanese knives you'll find in stores today comes from Sakai, a region that has been producing high-quality samurai swords since the 1930s. And in fact, kasumi knives are made in the same manner as traditional samurai swords. Knife production there began back in the 16th century, and the Sakai region has remained the top cutlery producing area in Japan since then. Today, blades in Sakai are produced using a combination of modern technology and traditional hand tools.
