This line of outstanding HAP40 Steel knives are crafted by Master Kanjo Tsukahara, from Seki City, Japan. Coming from a family of master sharpeners, Kanjo San has taken to creating these pieces to share with the world. They are a clean, classy knife with light weight, subtle hammer finish, and extreme out of the box sharpness, as you’d come to expect from a family of sharpeners.
HAP40 is an exotic Powder Stainless Steel of exceptional performance. It has 20% more Carbon than VG10, and can be hardened much higher for fantastic edge retention.
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.
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.
No dishwasher use!
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.
