We have included 2 different knife choices per price range. The first is easy to care for and might suit either someone new to Japanese knives, or the seasoned chef who just wants a knife they can wipe and leave!
The second is either a knife that is pure carbon therefore needs more care, or an unusual shape or steel that might be more tricky to sharpen than some and might be suited to the more experienced user, or an adventurous beginner!
An easy to care for petty with a western handle, perfect for the first foray into Japanese knives.
A carbon steel ko-bocho that is beautifully made.
£100 - £150
Blue #2 steel clad in stainless make this knife easy to sharpen and care for.
One of our go to knives at home, this laser thin petty is semi stainless and a joy to use. It's also James's all time favourite knife!
£151 - £200
Super blue steel at a great price and the kengata shape makes for a great looking knife!
White #2 with a soft iron clad means this one needs a little more care but the fit and finish on this range is superb.
Another one of our absolute faves and one of our best selling knives, this bunka will blow you away!
This is a visually stunning knife that would make an amazing gift.
What can we say about this but wow. Another absolute stunner from Konosuke.
A complete contrast to some of our other knives that are visually perfect with a great fit and finish, this Denka is revered by knife owners for its amazing sharpness and its ability to hold its edge.
