Japanese Chef Knives

Refine By
Shun
$129.95

This powerful kitchen multi-tasker is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and more.... The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Plus, a thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handle. Behind the knife's beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance. Shun's VG10 steel core-known for its incredible edge retention-is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that's sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. 6" blade. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan. read more

Saber Knives
$59.99

Saber Knives offer a unique high-quality solution for the hard-working chef! we specialize in custom manufacturing of high grade k...nives for the culinary artist. Each knife is hot drop forged from a single piece of proprietary German steel. German metallurgical engineers pioneered the high carbon stainless steel manufacturing process. This process produces a metal that is hard enough to hold an edge, flexible enough not to break, and soft enough to hone and sharpen. It also must have all of the right qualities to resist rust and corrosion throughout its lifetime. The resulting formula for German stainless steel is: x 45 Cr Mo V 15. This recipe for metal is what is used to ensure every saber knife is chef sharp! each knife also features a comfortable handle, a full tang with bolster for strength and superior balance, and a grant on edge that creates fine air pockets between the blade and the food being cut to minimize drag and improve efficiency. Nothing is waste. Each of our knives addresses a real need in the kitchen of the serious cook. Who is saber? the people of Saber Knives are like you: we work, we have families. Also like you, we don't want to pay too much for what we buy. Saber Knives started because of our frustration at the high cost of quality cutlery. Convinced a small, well-managed company could Engineer and produce a Product equal to the very best German knives, we set out to do just that. No effort has been spared to reach that goal. We only make forged knives using the best steel, as it makes for a better knife. If you want to pay too much for quality knives, that's your business. If you want to buy a premium set of knives and have money left over. That's our business. read more

When we first started making our first knives on the forge we were very much influenced by the Japanese aesthetic. Over time we re...turned to our roots, where we feel happier, but this bad boy is a legacy from that time. Longer, but lighter, than our Classi Chef it's perfect for those who are looking for a knife with reach and a good-sized cutting blade, but who are averse to too much heft. You can use it to carve if required and pretty much anything else you want it to do. It has a nice, slender handle allowing a pencil grip for long cutting motions and we feel holds it own against all-comers in this category. The blade is made from Sandvik 14c28n, arguably one of the best knife steels available. The handle is made from stabilised spalted beech with a distinctive red vulcanised fibre liner. As with all our knives, it's distinctive (and unique) hollow grind allows for a far superior cutting action. The hollow grind leaves a concave profile on the blade and reduces weight while retaining strength, requires less metal to go through each cut and makes the knife easier to sharpen and keep sharp. Every knife maker these days seems to have a gimmick - we don't, we have just re-engineered the chef's knife from scratch. Please note that all of our knives are made individually from scratch and take up to three weeks to complete - so at busy times it might take us a while to get our stock levels back up. Hone regularly, sharpen as necessary Don't put in the dishwasher Due to natural variations in the wood, the knife you receive will have a slightly different handle from the one shown. read more
