The second masterpiece by visionary industrial designer Komin Yamada, Sha Ra Ku Mono’s seamless construction, elegant contours, and standout design have earned it a place in our carefully curated collection for over twenty years. Unlike Global knives, Yamada’s previous creation, Sha Ra Ku Mono features hollow handles that give it a delicate balance evocative of traditional wood-handled Japanese knives.

Sha Ra Ku Mono is produced by Tojiro in Tsubame, Japan and distributed exclusively by Seattle Cutlery.


The Sha Ra Ku Mono cheese knife's eye-catching form isn't just for show—this is the perfect tool for brie and parmesan alike. Ultrafine serrations (35 per inch) effortlessly saw through hard cheeses and tough rinds and the thin blade chops like butter through softer cheese while three elliptical cutouts provide easy release by breaking suction between the blade and cheese slice. A forked tip allows you to serve and snack while you cut.


Sha Ra Ku Mono blades are forged from molybdenum-vanadium alloy stainless steel, which finely balances edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance. This alloy is softer than the VG-10 steel used in other Tojiro knives but harder than European knife steels and is comparatively easy to sharpen.

The handle is made from hollow 18/8 stainless steel, crafted with the blade as a single piece. Much like a traditional wooden wa handle, its light weight keeps the knife's balance farther forward than on European knives. The ergonomic shape allows it to be gripped either by the handle or with a more versatile pinch grip.
