Seki Magoroku Kaname

Seki Magoroku Kaname is a Red Dot Design Award winning series of three premium Kiritsuke knives, whose characteristic feature is a sharp-pointed tip.

Many celebrated swords were born in the Seki area during the Kamakura era. The master craftsman “Magoroku of Seki” harnessed the original techniques to produce swords of great quality, sharpness, strength and beauty.

Made in Japan, these beautiful and highly functional knives feature two layers of stainless steel sandwiching a core layer of very hard VGXeos steel.

Kaname knives feature thin, precise, satin polished cutting blades with excellent edge retention.

Beautifully balanced, these very special knives are a joy to use.
