Kajibee knives are hand-forged by master blacksmith Kunio Ishikawa and his son. They are located in a quaint, traditional factory in the historic knife making city of Sanjo, Japan. Master Ishikawa prefers to only use traditional Japanese steel such as White, and Blue Paper steels from Hitachi Yasuki Steel. All Kajibee knives are hand-forged in a traditional wood-fired oven and then hand polished. This technique has been passed down from father to son for many hundreds of years.
His knives are thin, light, and represent incredible value for money given the high level of finish. Shirogami Steel also offers great edge retention and are very easy to sharpen should you wish to try and sharpen your own knives with a Japanese whetstone. As with all of our knives, please don’t sharpen them using anything but a whetstone.
- Washing – 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. No dishwasher use!.
Cutting – 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.
Sharpening – We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. We have a full range of sharpening tools here.
