Honbazuke Service (one week turnaround)

$100 per knife

 

The term "Honbazuke" denotes the meticulous craftsmanship involved in manually refining a knife's edge to achieve optimal thickness, sharpness, and aesthetic presentation. Kaz is committed to exerting maximum dedication to enhance the performance of your cherished Japanese knife, ensuring you can fully appreciate its capabilities. Employing professional whetstones of up to #10000 grit including natural whetstones for polishing, he tailors the outcome to your preferences for the desired finish.

Why new knives are not always very sharp

Even newly acquired Japanese knives may not consistently exhibit a pristine edge. This intentional choice is made by manufacturers, who often opt for a less acute blade angle to mitigate potential damage during transit and prioritise the knife's overall durability over immediate sharpness. Additionally, they acknowledge the diverse preferences among users regarding the level of sharpness desired, hence leaving room for customization.
