Gingami 3 is categorized to stainless steel for its 13-14.5% Chromium blending ratio. Although it’s a corrosion-resistant stainless steel, actual feel of cutting is closer to the high-end carbon steel, The edge is not slippy but significantly grabbing object fibers.

Another reason why professional chef selects Gingami 3 is a good affinity to whetstones at hand re-sharpening. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening. Neo-Classic Nashiji finish gives irresistible appeal to the series as well. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening.

The Japanese term “Nashiji” (English: Pear skin pattern) refers to the result of a technique that appears to leave the surface finish of a blade looking unfinished and rustic.

Very high quality knife

The handle looks very good and is comfortable to hold. The blade also looks beautiful and it's very sharp out-of-he-box. After using it for 3 week daily it is still sharp, though it has lost a bit of sharpness. Still cuts trough vegetables smoother than any of the knives I have ever used(i.e. average stainless steel chef knife).
I expected this to be of high quality and it lived up to the expectations, but this level of sharpness has even surpassed them, amazing.
I was pleasantly surprised by the short delivery time, it took 3 days to deliver the knife to Hungary(to the other side of the world).
p.s.: if you cook/like cooking you have to get a knife like this, it will be a joy to use

Fantastic Knives, amazing service

I ordered 2 knives a Santoku and Gyuto Silver Steel Western brown handle. I placed the order online and received shipment in Australia 3 days later. The packaging and little note that came with the packaging was a nice touch.
The actual knives are fantastic to use, sharp out of the box and truly great looking. They made making dinner an excellent experience and I can't wait to use them over the coming years.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
