Product Details

Kai Shun adapts centuries-old samurai blacksmithing to make exceptional Japanese knives for the modern cook. Every knife in their world-renowned Classic range has a steep tapered blade, which makes it much sharper than a Western knife. A core of hard VG MAX steel, surrounded by 32 layers of Damascus steel, makes it extremely durable and rust-resistant, ensuring the knife retains its edge in between sharpenings—with a whetstone only. The tarnish-proof pakkawood handle is symmetrical and suitable for both left- and right-handed cooks. This 16cm cleaver is suitable for breaking bones and cutting through tough cuts of meat. We offer a free annual sharpening service for 10 years after the purchase of a Kai Shun knife, exclusively for customers on our mailing list.

About The Brand

Kai

Since its founding in 1908, Kai knives have held a cult status in Japan—and since their European debut in 1980, the rest of the world has caught on. Taking their inspiration from samurai blacksmithing but incorporating modern manufacturing processes, Kai has mastered the art of making extremely sharp, durable knives that feel effortless to use. All their knives are manufactured in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. As their products reached global popularity, Kai has expanded their range to include European shapes like the chef’s knife as well as ambidextrous handles, such as in the Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare ranges.
