HOW TO CHOOSE
We handle various types of knives with different shapes, sizes and handles. In order to find the perfect knife which fits in your hands, we ask our customers to actually hold the knife at our real shops in Tokyo and Paris.We understand that it is not easy to choose products online, especially because you cannot physically touch and examine the actual product. In order to make sure that we deliver ideal cooking tools to our customers, we inform the details of each item and answer any questions.
Knives can be divided into 2 large groups, “Japanese style (single bevel)” or “Western style (double bevel)” and can also be broken down in different manufacturing processes and origins. In this page, we will briefly introduce the basics about knives such as the difference of single bevel and double bevel, the blade material and structure of blades.
