  1. JKC R2 Ironwood Santoku 180mm

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing of vegetables, meat and fish and is the classic Japanese chefs’ knife shape. This shape is now becoming a byword for anyone looking for a Japanese style blade. With a wide blade with a relatively straight edge this is the perfect knife for general food preparation. In a professional kitchen this shape is best for the prep, garnish and vegetable sections. In profile, the blade is straight for about 60% of the edge and then curves softly to the tip. The breadth of this gently curved blade is ideally suited for resting against the knuckle for total control and speed as well as complete safety when chopping straight down using the very back of the knife for grater like mincing of garlic, ginger etc.

  3. Nesmuk Exclusive 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 400 layers of 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. There is a variety of 17 different handles of precious woods or selected special synthetics such as micarta, juma ivory or juma black and a choice of steel, silver, gold platinum collars available.

  5. JKC R2 Ironwood Gyuto (3 sizes)

    The Saji R2 Ironwood Gyuto is probably one of the most desirable chefs' knives money can buy. Gyuto – meaning cow sword, is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. It is the Japanese adaptation of the classic French cooks' knife. This familiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point allowing efficient contact cutting, slicing and occasional carving. The curved edge profile facilitates easy rolling action. The Gyuto is narrower, making it able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other foods that have 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. Includes: One Free Sharpening
