大阪府(堺市)Osaka - Sakai

A port town to the south of Osaka in the Kansai area.
Sakai's blacksmiths have been famous in Japan since the third century, during which Japan's blacksmiths came together for construction of the great Imperial burial mounds known as "Kofun."
Later, around 1540, the first knives were produced for cutting tobacco leaves, at the request of the Portuguese. The cleavers quickly became famous for their sharpness, and Sakai became synonymous with quality.
Sakai's blacksmiths have been working together since the beginning, sharing different manufacturing processes. It is this unique feature that explains why Sakai's blacksmiths still carry the names of ancient families and associations of blade makers. People also speak of "Sakai uchi hamono," which translates literally as "blades struck/forged in Sakai."
Most often, the blades are traditional, made from carbon steel, with beveled blades and cypress handles.
