Using the superb sword-making technique passed down through generations, Kiku Ichi Monji '菊一文字' pledges to produce high-quality cutlery. The grinder comes with a beautiful box.

The name Kiku Ichi Monji comes from a unique engraved stamp by a swordsmith Norimune. In the year 1208 the Emperor Gotoba gave permission to his swordsmith Norimune to stamp the blade of each sword with the imperial chrysanthemum-crest. Norimune then engraved the number 1 below the crest. Thus the name Kiku Ichi Monji, "chrysanthemum one", was created.
