“Kasane” is a kitchen knife made in Seki City, Gifu Prefecture, using materials from Japan's rich nature. The city has been producing cutlery for over 700 years, and its tradition and technology made this knife possible. Sumikama was established in 1916 in Seki City. They built upon their cutlery technology and experience and designed it from the perspective of women to fit the modern lifestyle. The handle is made out of Gifu Prefecture's natural wood from mountain cherry trees, which used to be disposed of or chipped. The special beauty unique to natural wood gives each knife its own aesthetics.
