Hatsukokoro - Kokugei
A good introduction to Japanese carbon steel knives, the Kokugei ("Black Whale") Blue #1 has a good heat treat and durability at a price point that represents good value for money.
Cutting Edge Knives is a family run business established in 2011 and based in the picturesque town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We love the history and craftsmanship that goes into making Japanese chef knives and accessories and the excitement and enjoyment you experience when using a truly sharp knife in the kitchen.
Over many years we've helped thousands of happy customers find their dream knife and look forward to helping you too.
