A little about us

We love food and cooking and  we know how big an investment a "real" kitchen knife can be so we only sell knives (and accessories) that we'd be happy to pay for and own ourselves. 

That's why we take the time to review and rate all our products before putting them on sale.

Our pick

Style and exceptional value

East, meet West. These knives combine the style and detail of the best Japanese knives with a familiar Western handle for those preferring a more robust knife that still cuts excellently.

Supremely understated, the sandblasted finish of the cladding steel gives a satin look that offsets the high polish of the cutting edge to create a classic looking Japanese knife.

There's a lot to like about Jikko knives and the White #2 range is a strong example of their eye for subtle design and performance.
