Description

Shiraki Knives à Sakai City était l’un des meilleurs forgerons du Japon. Kenichi Shiraki était un forgeron célèbre qui peut fabriquer des couteaux Honyaki (Shiroichi Mizu Honyaki) trempés à l’eau numéro 1 en acier blanc. On dit qu’il n’y a qu’environ quatre forgerons qui peuvent fabriquer ces couteaux en 2021. Cette compétence est requise.
Satoshi Nakagawa y a étudié et fabriqué des couteaux pendant 16 ans. Il a fermé les couteaux Shiraki après la retraite du maître Shiraki et a commencé les couteaux Nakagawa en avril 2021. Il peut également fabriquer des couteaux Shiroichi Mizu Honyaki, des couteaux à biseau simple et double et des couteaux en acier inoxydable et en acier au carbone. Ce fait signifie qu’il est l’un des meilleurs forgerons du Japon. Il a hérité des 600 ans d’histoire et de tradition de fabrication de couverts de Sakai.
Myojin est un affûteur incroyablement talentueux et possède plus de 10 ans d’expérience dans l’industrie des couteaux. Pendant ce temps, il a également suivi une formation de forgeron, ce qui, selon lui, l’aide à mieux comprendre l’aiguisage.
Tout l’industrie de la coutellerie à Sakai a été très impressionné y compris Morihiro (affûteur légendaire de Sakai) par son talent d’aiguiseur. Sa volonté personnelle, ainsi que son incroyable productivité constante lui permet de s’améliorer rapidement

Tips for best results

Make sure your knife will deliver its absolute best by having it professionally sharpened at least once a year. Please note that our meticulously handcrafted Japanese knives are – unless otherwise noted – carbon steel and not stainless steel. To prevent rust, make sure the blades are patted dry – especially when cutting acidic items. Never cut frozen foods, hard products, bone, or twist the blade when using. Never soak in water after use or put in the dishwasher. After use, store in a cool, dry place and avoid high temperature fluctuations. 

Our commitment to you – our customers
Warranty

Every knife we carry has a lifetime warranty from manufacturing defects and errors. For example, if the handle becomes detached or cracks appear after a few weeks of proper use. Or if there are any blade cracks from the edge to the spine. While such defects are indeed rare, they can occur. In such cases, we will exchange the knife in question or give you a refund. Each warranty case is different depending on the criteria, and we reserve the right in each and every case to evaluate the applicability of our lifetime warranty in the event of any manufacturing defects and errors.

After-Sales service

Do you get the feeling that your knife just can’t “cut it”?

Each knife we carry is supplied with a so-called “factory edge”. Our chef knife range comprises more than 200 different products. While all our handcrafted Japanese knives ship with a “factory edge”, ultimate blade sharpness can vary. If you feel that your knife’s blade edge is not performing to its full potential, feel free to contact us and we will provide you with professional sharpening for free!

Oops! What about the truly Unthinkable?

Was it just through a slight slip of the hand that your knife accidentally fell on the floor and damaged its tip and blade, or it was used to cut a hard, frozen product and chipped? Don’t despair, get in touch with us and we will solve the problem through our in-house, professional sharpening and repair service.

What are the different types of Japanese knives?

What are the different types of Japanese knives?

Each Japanese knife is made with a specific purpose in mind. There are types of multi-purpose knives such as the Gyuto which is the equivalent of a chef's knife or the Santoku which translates into: three virtues, a name that well represents its multiplicity. The Sujihiki and the Yanagiba are made for slicing while the Nakiri and the Usuba are specialized for cutting vegetables. Without forgetting the Petty for precision tasks. The list goes on and the possibilities are diverse.

Why buy a Japanese knife?

Why buy a Japanese knife?

Japanese blades are lighter, very balanced, higher hardness, sharper and retain their sharpness longer. This allows the user greater control of his work tool and a clean cut to alter the texture and flavor of the food as little as possible.
