About "Shikou" (supreme) Series

"Shikou" means supreme. The curvy and elegant form of the blade line is inspired by Japanese swords. Shikou series utilise luxury materials in handles such as ebony and silver inlay. 

 

What is "Ginsan" Silver-3 Steel Knives?

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.

The difference in price is in the different steel!

The cutting quality and its durability changes greatly depending on differences in the steel. The prerequisites of a good kitchen knife are sharpness and that it retains its edge for a long time.

Also, while the professional Japanese chef sharpens it every day, the sharpening time varies depending on the different steel (different series). If you can save 5 minutes a day, in a month (20 days) you can save 100 minutes, or 1,200 minutes a year, which gives you almost a whole extra day.

With a sharp knife, your food will taste more delicious too! Purchase a kitchen knife from a higher-grade series, and it will make a considerable difference to the taste of your cooking and the length of your preparation time.


Handle: Ebony and Turquoise-colour handle (resin) with silver inlay

The basic Shikou handles come with ebony and silver inlay. This type of knife adds extra luxury with turquoise-colour resin.  

 

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

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

Most of minor issues can be fixed by sharpening on a #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, for free of charge! (you only bear the postage for sending us)

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

Three merits to have good, quality kitchen knives

1. Better sharpness

Improving the cut quality of the kitchen knife, we can promise that "your cooking will be more delicious", "your cooking time will be reduced", and "cooking will be more fun".

2. It is easy to re-sharpen

Since quality kitchen knives do not have distortion, sharpening will become easier. Just as important as the cut quality of a kitchen knife is that it is easy to sharpen. 

3. It retains its sharpness for longer

If you use quality kitchen knives, you can extend the intervals between when you need to re-sharpen.
