Choice of 3 types of steel of knives (Josaku White-2, Ginsan Silver-3 or Montanren Blue-2 steel)

1: Josaku White-2 Steel (High Grade Carbon Steel) $595

White steel (also known as “Shirogami”) is used for cutlery products that can be sharpened to an excellent edge with good quality natural stones. It is a carbon steel with only very small amounts of the impurities.

It has a very narrow range of temperatures for hardening (Yakiire and quenching), and thus requires the blacksmith to be very skilled. 

Sharpness ★★★ (5/5)

Hardness/durability ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Edge retention  ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Ease of sharpening ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Rust resistance ★★★☆☆ (3/5)

Handle - Magnolia wood and buffalo horn grip

 

2: Ginsan Silver 3 Steel (High Grade Stainless steel) $705

High grade material ”Ginsan” is originated from Yasuki Hagane commercialised by Hitachi Metals,Ltd. This over 1000 year-traditional ironmaking method is called Tatara, which refines iron sand into Tamahagane (mostly used in sword blades).

These days, “Ginsan” is commonly used in high grade cutlery products and preferred by a number of professional chefs. It contains more than 12% of Chromium that makes superb sharpness and durability. It is comparable to some high grade carbon steels such as Blue steel and white steel but far more rust resistant.

Sharpness ★★★★ (4/5)

Hardness/durability ★★☆ (4/5)

Edge retention  ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Ease of sharpening ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Rust resistance ★★★★★ (5/5)

Handle - Magnolia wood and buffalo horn grip

 

3: Montanren Blue-2 Steel (High Grade Carbon Steel) $905

"Montanren(紋鍛錬)" is referred to the wave-like pattern appearing on the back side of blades. It requires the blacksmith to possess exceptionally high skills of forging and quenching in order to have the waving line between soft steel and hard edge. 

"Blue-2 steel (Aogami #2)", the high-end carbon steel, is used for Montanren series. It is prone to rust without regular maintenance but known as top-class sharpness and durability.

Sharpness ★★★★★ (5/5)

Hardness/durability ★★★★★ (5/5)

Edge retention ★★★★★ (5/5)

Ease of sharpening ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Rust resistance ★★★☆☆ (3/5)

Handle - Octagon Magnolia and buffalo horn grip

Each knife comes with an individual knife box, which is good for a storage when not used and is presentable for gift purposes. Use of knife sheath is recommended only when you take the knife outside.

All the knives are pre-sharpened to the optimal result. They are ready for the first cut! 

  

 

3 Simple Steps to keep your carbon steel knives away from rust and in a good condition.

  1. Always wash the knife after use. Use cleanser if you have one.

  2. Pour boiling water onto the knife, then dry with wiping cloth.

  3. Rub with vegetable oil and wipe it with tissue paper, this is to prevent the knife having direct contact to the air. 

For everyday use you can apply step 1 and 2 only. However if you store the knife for a long period including step 3 is recommended.

  

Kaz's Knife "No worries, Minor-Issue Warranty"

Having been used for a while, even good knives can get chipped and rusty as seen in the above video, but don't worry! 

Most of the minor issues can be fixed by sharpening on a #400-#1000 whetstone. We have tutorial videos for you to learn how to use whetstone. However, it might seem a bit hard work to get it done by yourself.

Kaz's knife is offering "Minor-issue warranty" which covers small chips and rust on the knives you purchased from us. You can always contact us when you feel your knife became dull, chipped, rusty, etc. We fix those minor issues and send the sharpened knife back to you, mostly for free of charge! (depending on how much work is required, also you bear the postage for sending the knife to us)

(*) Please be advised, we do not warrant major issues caused by misuses such as dropped, cutting bones or frozen food, putting too much force into hard materials, etc.
