Handmade Knives from Osaka at KOBO

Bruce Rutledge

Bruce is the editor-in-chief based in Seatle

This November 30 at KOBO in Japan-town, check out the display of hand-made traditional Japanese knives from Osaka and meet Midori and Ryan, the couple behind knife-maker Hasu-Seizo. The couple will be on hand from 12 to 5 to talk about their knives and help you understand how to distinguish a good knife from a bad knife. Hasu-Seizo knives, made with Damascus steel and mahogany and keyaki handles, are professional-grade knives forged in a family-owned workshop in Sakai, a neighborhood of Osaka that has been a center of knife-making in Japan since the 5th century. The knives are all created in a time-honored way by their extended family who are the Sakai Takayuki artisans in Osaka.
