Whether it's a handcrafted knife from Sakai or one purchased at a dollar store, every knife deserves to be treated with proper care and love.
Each knife has its own purpose and function, and the team here at Seisuke Knife will make sure every one that comes to our shop leaves at peak performance; shiny and sharp!
A decent amount had to be removed from this petty to move the bevel back up. Some time on the belt and whet stones and the blade was looking good as new!
So you were trying to cut a squash, and a chunk of your knife comes out with it. It happens to the best of us. Luckily, this does not mean the end of your knife's life. A decent amount of material is removed from the blade, in the chip removal process, but it's as sharp as ever.
This santoku came in with a lot of professional wear.
It was in need of a full blade thinning, straightening, and sharpening. Meaning it saw the full breadth of our back room; going from the grinding belt, to the horizontal wheel, and finally to some medium and high grit whetstones.
Depending on the necessity, we use a horizontal wheel, a grinder belt, and whetstones all at various grits.
To remove a chip, material from the blade must be removed to return the edge to a smooth line.
Knives bend over time and can be moved back to cut more effectively.
After frequent use and sharpening, the edge of the blade moves higher to thicker parts of the blade. Material is removed to thin the edge.
Whether for cosmetic reasons, or because the old one has broken, we can replace any knife handle.
