  1. Hammer Santoku 180mm

    Hammer Santoku 180mm

  2. 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. JKC 63 Layer Santoku (160mm / 175mm)

    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 restingon the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this knife one of the best knives for the preparation of vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task.

    Particularly suited for those that use a more horizontal or slicing action to cut rather than rolling the blade on a board. These stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp stainless 63 layer Damascus blades have exceptionally keen enduring edges whilst being easy to re sharpen. The central core of the 63-layer JKC Damascus Collection steel is a High Carbon Chrome Vanadium (HCCV) Stainless Steel. HCCV is a recent addition to the selection of Super Steels used by Japan’s most revered smiths in the manufacture of outstanding culinary knives. JKC 63 Layer Damascus Collection blades are hardened to 58:60 HRC providing very enduring edges, which are incredibly easy to resharpen. The 63 layers imbue the blade with a truly eye-catching wood like rippled pattern; this intricate complex process not only creates an aesthetically delightful effect. More importantly, layering adds immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade. The handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood; a laminated hard wood which is silicon injected for optimum longevity and hygiene. Pakkawood is reserved for the finest knives. The handles are secured to the tang by three steel rivets. Traditional handles have seen resurgence amongst professional chefs who find them supremely ergonomic and durable.

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  16. 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.
