2 weeks lead-time required once order is placed.
Engraving your name or message on the blade. $10 per knife. Please put 2x engraving services in the cart if you would like to order 2 knives with both engraved.
After completing your order, please ensure to email Hiroki firstname.lastname@example.org to notify of the engraving name.
Engraving service is only available for knives purchased from us.
Engraving is not applicable to Paring knives as the blade area is too small.
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 letters.
(*) hand carving may not be applicable to some types of knives, in this case we use laser engraving.
We can organise engraving for any knives (except paring and fruit knives) available at Kaz's website.
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)
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 free 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.
