Hasu-Seizo is a family owned and operated business that is proud to offer handcrafted Japanese knives to the greater Seattle region. Our extended family is a manufacture of the Sakai Takayuki brand.
Growing up in the southern part of Osaka, Japan the Sakai city was familiar to many, and we have used Sakai's kitchen knife for many years. After moving to America, I felt the importance of Japanese tradition, technology and technique, and "Hasu-Seizo" began with the desire to let you know the tradition and splendor of this Japanese Sakai knife. Traditional Japanese kitchen knife technology is a gem that reaches back to Japanese sword making and the world can now experience.
