Our 1˝ Kensaki Knife is hand forged by master chisel maker and blacksmith Akio Tasai using a special high carbon blue steel which is ideal for cutting North American hard woods, such as walnut and maple. Each knife is individually forge laminated and hardened to Rockwell 65.  Kensaki or sword knives are used for marking and paring intricate joinery. Blade width is 1˝ and overall length is 11˝.

Mr. Tasai began his apprentice at age 12 and was trained several master blacksmiths. He now has over 50 years of experience himself as a master blacksmith. His tools are highly valued and demand often exceeds supply.
