Konosuke Sakai is from Osaka, Japan. They began in 1932 as "Kawamura Teishichi Shoten", a small manufacturing and wholesale knife company. The building was burned down by tan air raid in the war of 1945, so the business was temporarily closed. In 1948, they reopened and built very strong ties with restaurant/sushi chefs and home cooks alike. Their company became known as Kawamura Shoten Co. in 1969 and opened the head office four years later. In 1990, they were renamed Kaneshige Cutlery Co. Finally, Konosuke as we know it, materialized as the knife sector of the company, and their website went live. This opened the doors to world wide trade since.
