Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Japanese kitchen knives so special?
Authentic Japanese kitchen knives are forged with traditional craftsmanship and made from quality steels. Not only are they sharper than other knives, but Japanese knives stay sharper for longer. Whether you are a professional chef, a casual home cook, or something in between, a good knife can make all the difference in the kitchen.
What is the difference between stainless steel & high carbon?
Stainless steels, as the name implies, are resistent to rust. This is due to the added metalurgic components. While often softer than true high carbon steels, this gives them extra durability & damage resistence.
High carbon steels are more pure forms of steel and can form rust easily. To avoid this, they should be regularly wiped dry during use. While more brittle than stainless steels, high carbon steels can hold a finer edge for longer time, and are often easier to sharpen.
A knife has been sold out for a while, when will it restock?
Unfortunately, we cannot say when the knife will be available again. It is best to sign up for the restock notification on the listing page for the knife.
