‘kamikiri hocho’ japanese paper knives by inui yosuke

 

the production of sakai-uchihamono begins in the sakai from the 16th century, due to the high quality that comes from advanced forging technology, receiving the title of the ‘sakai-kiwami’ from the shogunate. as the knives were spread across the whole country in the edo period, they were evaluated as a professional cooking knife, still seen being used by chefs around the world.

 

based out of japan, designer inui yosuke has concevied ‘kamikiri-hocho’, a paper knife created under the influence traditional japanese craftsmanship. for storage purposes, a stationary enclosure display has been developed to showcase its beauty and material qualities. made using red sandal wood and tin for ornament, the knife becomes available in ‘standard hairline’, ‘mirror’, ‘black oxide’ and marbled multi-layerd steel finishes.
