  1. Misono Handmade Santoku (3 Sizes)

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this a great choice as the primary blade for those who prepare mostly vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task. Particularly well suited to a more horizontal or slicing action to cut as opposed the more classic French techique of roll cutting on a board. This slim, lighter (than its Santoku brother) blade makes a wonderfully impressive SMALL carving knife. Ideal for creating awe inspiringly wafer thin slices from your Sunday joint or equally elegant cuts from fish and cold meats. Like any Artisan knife it also capable of tackling the hardest vegetables like celeriac and swede with consummate ease. If you keep your edge lovely and silky there is no reason why this relatively narrow blade should not meet many domestic fish challenges like slicing, light filleting etc with ease.

    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 etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

  2. Tamahagane Santoku (2 sizes)

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. This shape is now becoming a byword for anyone looking for a Japanese style chefs knife. One small issue that has always concerned us at JKC is that with its relatively straight edge profile, the Santoku has never been as efficient when used in a very classic western rolling cut action as the more curved western style edge profiles like the Kengata.

    Inspired by the unparallel functionality of a Samurai sword, which is slightly curved, we asked the Arai blacksmiths to apply a gentle curve to the spine of the knife so the whole blade, whilst retaining a traditional straighter edge of the classic Santoku allows for an easier rolling action more in keeping with the way most of western hands use a chefs knife. Another small but revolutionary change from a classic Santoku is the slightly more pointed tip end – to make this Santoku more efficient then others when working with raw or cooked flesh. These minor, and unique changes in the overall profile of the blade has resulted in what we have found to be the most awesomely efficient chefs knife available in this price category. The breadth of this minutely 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. This perfectly shaped knife will float through any task. This longer model is ideal for those more comfortable with a larger knife.

    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.

  11. Misono Handmade Gyuto (3 sizes)

    This slimmer (than its Santoku brother) blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword. It 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 familiiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point allowing efficient contact cutting, slicing and ocasional carving. The curved edge profile facilitates easier rolling action than most Santoku’s when cutting vegetables – with the revolutionary design of the Santoku in this collection this may no longer be an issue. The major difference in this collection between the two shapes is the blade width. 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 etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

  12. Gold Kitano 180mm Gyuto

    The Japanese adaptation of the classic French chef's knife. This slimmer (than its Santoku brother) blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword and is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. The more curved edge profile facilitates easier rolling action than most Santoku’s when cutting vegetables – with the revolutionary design of the Santoku in this collection this may no longer be an issue. The major difference in this collection between the two shapes is the width of the blade. The Gyuto is overall narrower and so is able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other food that have a tendency to stick to the side of the blade better than the wider Santoku. The reduced surface area means there is less space for these types of foods to stick to. 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 more suitable than a Santoku.
