  1. JKC Super Aogami Santoku 175mm

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing - and is the shape of a traditional Japanese chef’s knife. The breadth of the Santoku and its gently curved profile make this an ideal tool for speed cutting against knuckle. This technique provides safe comfortable cutting action ONLY when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on knuckle. This most versatile blade makes an ideal main knife for those who cut more fruit and vegetables, with occasional meat and fish preparation.

    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.

    These blades will oxidise if left damp or wet and should be dried immediately after washing and oiled with a little vegetable oil or Tsubaki (Camelia oil available in the accessories section).

  3. 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.

  7. JKC Super Aogami Nakiri 160mm

    160mm -The Nakiri may for all the world look like a small cleaver but it is an accurate blade, in fact more a precision instrument. Whilst fans of British TV cookery shows may observe chefs confidently applying the Nakiri to a multitude of meat and fish ingredients this would be totally anathema to the Japanese, who reserve these slim fine edge blades for things like getting thin rolls of Daikon which are then minced to absolutely delicate angel hair vermicelli. Home cooks and Japanese chefs use the Nakiri to make powder of various herbs as well as transform onion or garlic with incredible efficiency into fine rings or fabulously even, meltingly small, diced pieces. The rounded tip can be guided with relative ease against the top of the fingers to cut along the ridges of halved fruit and vegetables. Actually this shape truly lends itself to the process of properly cutting an onion from the halving all the way through to following the lines and then mincing. As for tears with an onion, as with all well made Japanese knives, there is no way the user could possibly be reduced tears unless they have allowed the edge to dull after a lot of heavy use. The Nakiri is the easiest blade to 'strop' sharp as the straight profile allows the edge to be swept across the newspaper or leather in one movement. So, regularly sweeping edge on each side on newspaper five to 10 times should keep your nakiri Knife keenly sharp.

    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 These blades will oxidise if left damp or wet and should be dried immediately after washing and oiled with a little vegetable oil or Tsubaki (Camelia oil available in the accessories section).

  8. 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
