Yoshikazu Ikeda is one of the finest smiths in Sakai, we hesitate to use superlatives like best or finest as they can become easlily meaningless if overused. Ikeda-san has been making knives and swords for over 40 years since his early 20's, Ikeda-san became officially recognized as a dentoukougeishi; a traditional craftsman officially recognized by the Japanese government and since 2001 has been the chairman of the association of dentoukougeishi. He forges knives for a select few brands as their top shelf knives, and we are honored to be able to get them in our shop made to order for us. 

Ikeda-san's blades have an amazing and very difficult to combine combination of easy fine edge formation, edge retention and toughness; even great smiths have a hard time getting all three.
