We love the simple but beautiful blade and the amazing fit and finish. Powdered steel clad in stainless makes the knives a breeze to care for.

These are great looking knives, they have a beautiful mirror finish and the fit and finish is something you can tell Jikko have really thought about. The choil is beautifully rounded to a degree we've never seen before and the spine has been rounded too. The handle is octagonal ho wood with a buffalo horn ferrule and the HRC is 62.

What you get

The knife comes in a red box with gold lettering. Inside there's a stepped cardboard interior with a sharpening instructions leaflet in Japanese. The blade is covered in a brown paper sheath.

Helping you find the perfect knife

Cutting Edge Knives is a small family run business based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. We love the history and craftsmanship that goes into making Japanese chef knives and the excitement and enjoyment you experience when using a truly sharp knife in the kitchen.

Since 2011 we've helped thousands of happy customers find the perfect knife for their cooking and hope to serve you soon.
