In 1977, their long efforts & hard work was rewarded at last & they finally have obtained the chance of technical tie-up with Gerber Legendary Blades. The first work on the Silver Knight series has proved to be the milestone of G.Sakai.
As everyone knows, the Silver Knight has recorded the sales more than a million pieces in the market for a decade. Because of this feat, the world market has begun to aware of the high level of the Japanese knife industry.
After the success of the Silver Knight series, the company name has been changed two times before settling down on the current G.Sakai in 1982. Since then they have continued to expand the line of G.Sakai label knives while answering to a lot of demands from overseas famous knife makers on the basis of O.E.M..
