About Us

As passionate home cooks ourselves, 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 focus is Japanese knives - we simply love the craftsmanship that goes into them and the look and feel you don't typically get from more "European" knives and over the years we've enjoyed testing and using the wide range of knives we stock and we continue to grow serve our many happy customers both in the UK and around the world.
