First Impressions

Straight out of the box you can just tell the ginsan is a great collection of knives. They measure very well on the sharpness tester and in hand they're well balanced and nimble.


These are beautiful knives. Certainly understated but they bear close scrutiny and up close you can see the quality and skill in each and every one. 

The polished finish and excellent finishing to expose the core steel along the cutting edge is very well done and pairs nicely with both the cherry wood and walnut handles.

In Hand

Light and well balanced, the ginsan is a joy to use from the small petty through to the gyuto they're comfortable and nimble.


Ginsan Silver 3 stainless steel is easy to sharpen and retains an edge well so it's a great choice for a long lasting knife.

Ease of Care

With many of the properties of carbon steel but with the convenience of stainless ginsan is easy to look after and care for so just follow the standard care tips and you're good to go!

Our Verdict

Forged by a very skilled blacksmith and finished by an excellent sharpener the blade quality is excellent and when you add the ease of sharpening and stainless properties of the ginsan steel we think these stunning knives are a very sound investment and addition to any collection.
