Knife Information

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.

Best paired with a wide wooden saya and a 1000/6000 whetstone

Great for the price

Light and easy to manoeuvre. Like some others have said, the handle isn’t that nice, but really not much to complain about given the price

Excellent knife for home cooks

White carbon steel 2 (one of the sharpest steel) for $99?? i had to ordered one!! It arrived quickly and man after using a white carbon steel i never wanted to use stainless steel again. Take care of it properly and it should last long time. Ooh and its very thin and light also.
