Engraving takes place in Japan, it takes 2-3 weeks for delivery.
We can engrave your name or message on the blade. It's $10 per knife. Please put 2x engraving services in the cart if you would like to order 2 knives with both engraved.
There is no field where you can fill out the engraving detail during checkout, so please email Hiroki firstname.lastname@example.org after completing your order.
Engraving service is only available for knives purchased from us.
Knife engraving is performed by one of the professional craftsmen at Sakai Jikko in Osaka.
We will order your knives as well as sending the engraving request to Jikko therefore it takes roughly 2 weeks from the time the order is placed until it is delivered to you. Please allow enough time if you consider it for a present.
We will use "Laser Engraving" for alphabet letters or "Hand Carving" for Japanese Kanji letters.
(*) hand carving is available for up to 3 Kanji letters and may not be applicable to some types of knives (eg: bread knives). In this case we use laser engraving.
Please refer to the following website if you would like to find your name in Kanji or ask us to create one.
Please note: Engraved knives are not refundable for return even if they are unused and in the original condition (unless manufacturer defects are found)
The knife I purchased and got engraved is beautiful! The customer service was impeccable. Any queries or questions I had were promptly answered (within 10mins of sending emails). I would 100% use them again and would highly recommend anyone to purchase through kaz’s Knife team if you are thinking about purchasing some beautiful knives!

The knife I received is beatIful, very high quality and personalised with an engraving as it was a gift for a friend who had always wanted proper Japanese knife. Customer service was excellent with great communication. I would definitely purchase again

I purchased a Sakai Jikko "Mille-Feuille" Santoku Knife as a gift for a friend and chose to get it engraved as well. The great looking knife arrived on time and impeccably sharp. Hiroki was incredibly responsive and helpful in replying to a couple of emails. Thank you. I would definitely shop here again.

I am very impressed with this company! The item I purchased (a gyotou) was exactly as described on the website, and the customer service was impeccable, helping me with my custom engraving in Japanese! The knife was sharp and undamaged, and the postage was very quick even despite it being the busy Christmas period. Thanks so much, and after buying my first ever chefs knife I would definitely recommend this company.

Ordered a Sakai Jikko Gyuto 21cm Knife as a gift on 6th of November and item arrived relatively quickly and no fuss despite having a name engraved. Hiroki was very prompt to follow up with a courtesy email to apologize for the slight delay of a few days due to customs clearing which was greatly appreciated. Will be looking forward to order more quality knives at a value prices in the future. Thanks!

I purchased a Misono gyuto 240mm, knife is beautiful and delivery quickly. And one lovely thing is that they help to put my name on my knife.
Excellent service from Kaz's kitchen. Thanks.
