  1. Kida 63 Layers Santoku 170mm

    Kida 63 Layers Santoku 170mm
  2. 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.

    Sale

    Gold Kitano Set of 3

    Made in a small workshop in the outskirts of Osaka in an area close to Sakai these 3 layer knives have a central core of VG10 No1. A compact range it represents the 4 most popular shapes. These knives are fully roll forged from a thicker blank than our Warikomi Collection (which uses the same steel). Therefore greater pressure was required to achieve a similar eventual thickness. This extra pressure has resulted in a slightly denser blade with a more aligned molecular structure which will stay sharper longer and is equally easy to resharpen. The hardness after final quenching is an outstanding 60:62 HRC. This is a good alternative to our Tamahagane Collection if a Multi-layered Damascus blade is not a priority. The handle is crafted from pakkawood to further enhance the quality and ensure longevity. Knives come in individual boxes. Set Includes: 1 x Utility knife 135mm for utility work. 1 x Nakiri knife 165mm for vegetables. 1 x Gyuto knife 180mm for meat

  15. 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. Special requests are gladly taken into account at an extra cost. Each Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knife with cutting edge is shipped in a luxurious piano lacquer box and with a high-quality leather sheath.
