Company name
Yoshisada Cutlery

History of Kyoto cutlery began when skillfull cutlery craftsmen moved to Kyoto along with relocation of the capital from Nara. Rich natural resources, such as soil around Fushimi-Inari Shrine and clean water, as well as other materials were availble within the region. And this resourcefulness contributed significantly to the development of cutlery Industry.  

Yoshisada Cutlery has a history of over 300 years. The name Yoshisada has originated from Fujiwara No Yoshisada who lived in Yamashiro area located in the south of the central Kyoto. Apparently, his first name Yoshisada passed down through generations. People became to associate it with cutlery making rather than someone's name.
Yoshisada is the one of a few cutlery craftsmen ateliers left in Kyoto.  
Cutlery from Yoshisada has been used and loved by artisans in various field of businesses including cooking, gardening, tatami and fan making. 

Care method

To keep a knife sharp, we recommend to polish it whenever it gets dull. Please consult with a specialty store about polishing and its tools.
Also, it is highly recommended to bring a knife to a specialty store and polish it once or twice a year.

[how to sharpen a knife]
If your knife has a two-edged blade, please sharpen both sides of the blade for the same number of times.

If you knife has a single edged blade, please polish the surface of the blade from top to bottom until you find the burr on the back of the blade. Please softly polish a knife twice or three times to remove the burr.

Handling instructions

Do not use a knife other than for cooking.

Knives must not used for hard objects. Otherwise, it will cause a broken blade or a crack in the blade.

We recommend to use a wooden cutting board. Please be aware that banging knife blades on the cutting board will break blades and it is also dangerous.  

Do not put your hand or fingers directly on blades.

Keep your knives away from children.
