Yoshihiko Akimoto is a knife maker in the third generation from Seki in Japan. The family business Red Orca was established by his grandfather who was born in 1896 and since then high quality forged blades for different uses are being manufactured. For generations now the handwork of forging process has been passed on. Until today they remain back on the old techniques of forging swords. Sophisticated Japanese steel provides a basis for extraordinary knives from Red Orca.
