Okeya-san's grandfather started producing what are called "kogatana" in Japanese. Kogatanas are small, handy knives for multi-purpose uses such as cutting, whittling, and some cooks use them as utility knives.

Today Okeya-san is producing small cooking knives too. He's in his mid 40s, and his son has just joined the business. He told us that his current wish is to expand the business more and more for his son and so he plans to add more kitchen knives like gyutos, santokus, and nakiris.

We love working with very small shops like this with multi generational family members producing the knives. We are proud to be the first and only company in the USA to buy and promote this family blacksmith shop. We will begin working on ordering knives and suggesting styles and sizes that our customers would like to see, with the hopes of keeping this family shop making knives for decades to come.

    5  Okeya Kogatana 24mm: Nice!, December 17, 2016
    Posted By: Lester - verified customer

    Wow! The cutting edge is actually 60 mm long (2.25 inches), and it arrived very sharp. I intended to use it as a utility knife and for practicing my sharpening technique. However, after washing it, I discovered that it is superior to curve-bladed knives, for cutting dried fruit on a cutting board. It cuts cleanly, in one motion, and there is no need to rock the blade (to cut the typical uncut parts of the slice). It is wonderful.

    Bought knife to practice sharpening on. Takes a very sharp edge. Would recommend it to anyone needing a razor sharp heavy duty utility knife.
