Kawamura Knives - Quality & Sharpness
Staying modest and out of the spotlight, Mr. Kawamura produces his knives in small quantities in Sakai in Japan. He has been working to perfect his artform for over 40 years, and his kitchen knives sharpness rival the performance of the major brands, without the price tag.
He prefers to utilise a core (cutting edge) of Shirogami or “White Steel”, sandwiched between 2 layers of stainless steel, which is then hammered to produce a beautifully unique finish. The knives are finished with an octagon walnut and ebony handle, and are light, durable, and a great addition to any kitchen.
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.
Each of our knives is carefully checked for quality prior to despatch, upon which you can expect a ~1-2 business day time between placing your order and your order shipping.
