Why we love it‘Because I’ve used European-style knives professionally for decades, I was reluctant to part with that style of handle. Then I met the Nagare range, which means I don’t have to! I can finally enjoy the sharp, fine-angled blades that make Japanese knives so delightful.’

About The Brand
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.Shop Kai
