    Miyabi 5000MCD set of 2

    The MIYABI 5000MCD series of knives combine perfect functionality and ergonomics with a unique design. Each individual knife is an authentic masterpiece made in Seki City, Japan using traditional Japanese craftsmanship in synergy with modern technology and materials to create a blade of the highest quality that is unmatched by any other commercially produced knife. The extremely hard core of Micro Carbide MC63 powder steel is encased in 100 layers of steel of two different grades of hardness. A special blade treatment alters the surface structure of every layer, giving each blade its individual pattern and then given its authentic Japanese Honbazuke honing by hand. The tempering process results in a central core hardness of 63 HRC after final quenching. Each knife has a unique Katana cutting edge, a visible sign of master craftsmanship that is reminiscent of the blades of Japanese swords. Traditionally, these swords received their individual Hamon, the line dividing the less hard blade body from the extremely hard cutting edge, by hand. Each handle is made of top-quality Masur Birch and is totally unique. The structure of the wood out of which the handle has been crafted is revealed through the interplay of lines and stripes. The warmth of the natural wood contrasts attractively with the steel blade. A mosaic pin and decorative end cap provide the finishing touches to this sophisticated look.

    Sale

    Hammer Knives Set of 3

    Made in Seki by a small group of nokaji whose skills have been passed down over the course of 3 generations, Hammer Collection blades are amongst the sharpest we sell within their price point and beyond. The bewitchingly intricate beauty of these 33 layers Damascus knives is matched by their effectiveness and unparalleled ease of maintenance. The central core is VG10 which is laminated with 16 layers of soft stainless on each side. The hand hammered surface of the blade fulfils a number of practical functions as well as imbuing an intriguing pattern unique to each maker. By hand hammering the body of the blade's molecules are pushed closer together thus increasing strength and toughness, a much needed addition to these satiny edges tho’ enduring are delicate. The hand hammer process also allows the actual edge to be innately more even thus facilitating easy re-sharpening. Also, the random hollows along the body of the blade act like ‘granton' indentations thus ensuring that ingredients fall away more easily. The knives of the Hammer Collection hold a very special significance to JKC as they are the perfect tool to demonstrate the edge maintenance technique we call stropping. The inevitable disbelief of customers upon hearing that blades can be made and kept considerably keener by brushing the edge on a newspaper is easily dissolved, as nearly all our knives can easily be transformed into utter sharpness this way. Due to the ultra thinness of the central core, and exceptional qualities innate within these very special traditionally made blades the edge can be taken from resisting tomato skin backwards and forwards to absolutely silky cutting action within under 30 seconds of stropping on newspaper. Handles are D shaped and comprised of luxurious and enduring red sandalwood, with black lacquered collars. Knives come in individual boxes. Set Includes: 1 x Utility knife 150mm for utility work. 1 x Nakiri knife 160mm for vegetables. 1 x Gyuto knife 210mm for Multipurpose

  10. Saji Craft Gyuto (3 sizes)

    This slimmer blade is called Gyuto – meaning 'cow sword'. Designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish, it is the Japanese adaptation of the classic French chef's knife. This familiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point, facilitating efficient contact cutting, slicing and occasional carving. The curved edge profile allows for easier rolling action than most Gyuto's when cutting vegetables. Its narrow shape allows it to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other foods with a tendency to stick to the side of the blade. If you require the knife to cut more raw / cooked flesh (meat or fish) than vegetables and want to double it up for occasional carving or only use/prefer a classic western style shape, then the Gyuto is ideal. SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE.
  11. Nesmuk Exclusive Zebrano Gyuto 180mm

    The art of forging in perfection

    The long quest for the perfect knife

    It is way more than just a commodity for everyday use: The Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE bears the heritage of thousands of years and gives its user a wholly different individual power. Being the forefather of the knife, the biface is among the oldest tools in almost all human societies and is seen as the symbol for the rise of mankind in evolutionary terms. It is a truly archaic object that, refined into the knife, has served as an indispensable tool up to the present. Only the fascination of the primordial has vanished in the course of industrialisation and mass production.

    The knife manufacturer Nesmuk has set itself the task of reviving old values with traditional craftsmanship and, at the same time, to meet the highest demands regarding sharpness, blade geometry and aesthetics. As a result, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is an unparalleled chef’s and kitchen knife of superlative style and quality. Like all Nesmuk knives, it is based on the basic form of a 3,500 year old knife type. Drawing on many years of studies and comparative analytical tests, highly skilled precision craftsmanship and the uncompromised aim to reach the optimum in sum, Nesmuk has fully perfected the knife. About four dozen individual steps are required for the production of the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE in a process that involves passion and ideals: from forge welding and forging, tempering and annealing, to the wet grinding of the double-sided hollow ground blade and the mounting of the handle. Heated up in glowing fire at a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees, the red glowing blade blank is forged on the anvil, formed by targeted, elemental hammer blows. From Damascus steel and a cutting edge in finest black carbon steel, which can be seen under the wild Damascus pattern, a fine blade is crafted with outstanding hardness of 64 – 65 Rockwell (HRC) and long-term edge retention. For numerous well-known top chefs as well as connoisseurs of the particular and authentic, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is the first choice in knives. Each Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knife with cutting edge is shipped in a luxurious piano lacquer box and with a high-quality leather sheath.

  12. Tamahagane Nakiri (Fruit & Vegetable Knife)

    Usuba – translates as thin (usu) edge (ba). When this shape is ground and sharpened from both sides, like the one in this collection, it is often called Nakiri. It is the definitive Japanese shape for the preparation of vegetables. Whether slicing the softest tomatoes, dicing the hardest swede or mincing ginger to the consistency of a smooth pulp this blade will transform a chore into a ‘Zen’ experience. The very straight edge profile with its flat front means that when chopping round layered vegetables like onions the resulting cut pieces are all the same size and will melt evenly during cooking. Be prepared for an increased amount of vegetables in your diet when using this knife as preparation becomes such a pleasure that it is difficult to stop slicing, chopping, dicing and mincing any vegetable you can get a hold of! Stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp and easy to resharpen, these knives are stainless and very easy to maintain. The 35 layers not only make these blades aesthetically appealing but add immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade. The central core of the 35 layer JKC Tamahagane Damascus steel is a High Carbon Super Steel known as VG10. This High Carbon Super Steel has the highest recommendations in the production of knives by authorities such as the British Steel Confederation and the Solingen Institute of Steel. The JKC 35 Layer Tamahagane Collection blades have all been hardened to an outstanding 60:62 HRC and with the inclusion of Cobalt in the alloy are easier to maintain than most Stainless High Carbon or other VG10 blades. The ergonomic traditional handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood, a laminated hard wood with silicon injection, which is reserved for only the finest knives and secured to the tang by three steel rivets for ultimate durability.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Hand wash only. Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

  13. JKC R2 Cowbone Gyuto 180mm

    Gyuto literally translates as ‘cow sword’ and is the Japanese interpretation of a European chef’s knife. Its wide base tapering to an extreme point provides a curved edge, enabling the traditional French roll cutting on the board technique to be performed comfortably. The 180mm is the smallest Gyuto available and is just long enough to fulfil a multitude of home cooking requirements, from medium carving and slicing jobs to the prep of most fruit and vegetables. The curved profile facilitates easy roll cutting on the board. Medium size length is the most popular size for both professionals and experienced cooks looking for a blade long enough to cope with most tasks from slicing, dicing & mincing to filleting, carving and chopping. Large size length is for those comfortable with a long, weightier blade and is often the preferred choice of busy chefs. SPECIAL NOTES: Hand wash only. Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE. Includes: One Free Sharpening

  19. Saji Craft Nakiri 180mm

    This style is called 'Nakiri' and is basically a duel edged version of the usuba, which translates as 'thin edge', so whilst it may appear to be a cleaver, it is actually a precision instrument designed to meet the challenges of finely mincing onions or transforming chives into a light powder. The Nakiri has proved enormously popular with Western chefs and helps fulfil tasks from slicing tomatoes to creating transparent cuts of cucumber. It is the definitive shape for those who prepare vegetables regularly. With practice the abilities of this style of blade are unsurpassed. The wide blade makes any kind of 'slice' or 'push/pull cut' technique on layered food, such as onion or cabbage especially efficient. SPECIAL NOTES: Hand wash only. Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE. Includes: One Free Sharpening
