Crafted in Sakai

Kai (魁) meaning ‘pioneer’ and Shin (心) meaning spirit, Kaishin knives are crafted by talented blacksmiths in the Sakai region of Japan. Located in the southern part of Osaka, Sakai has a rich history of blacksmithing, going back hundreds of years to the age of the Samurai, where the finest swords in Japan were made.

Now, a large percentage of all chef knives that come from Japan are manufactured in Sakai using traditional methods, with some blacksmiths now utilizing newer technology to ensure quality, precision, and performance, without sacrificing the traditional values the historic area was founded upon.

These Bunka’s have been paired with stunning one-off handles crafted in the USA. Using various combinations of exotic stabilized timbers, these handles are finished with incredible attention to detail and offer much more personalized knife.

Care Instructions

These knives are incredibly sharp, and as such have a very thin edge. Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break. Do not twist or torque the blade whilst cutting, as this may also chip the cutting edge.

No dishwasher use!
Use a cloth with hot water to wipe the blade, no scourers or abrasives as this may ruin the finish. Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place.

We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. Sharpening stones are available on our website, and with a small amount of practice you’ll be sharpening your own knives in no time.
