Sliver No.3 Stainless Steel
Sliver No.3 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is a very fine-grained Stainless Steel that can attain edge sharpness and edge retention comparable to some High Carbon Steels. It has even been used to create corrosion-resistant versions of Japanese traditional single bevel knives. It is very popular with both professionals and home cooks and is generally believed to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG10.

Traditional Kasumi polished finish. Kasumi roughly translated to “mist” or “cloud” and refers to the hazy appearance of the soft steel/iron cladding, in contrast to the fine polished cutting edge. This elegant finish is very common on traditional style Japanese blades.

Good morning ,

I received the knife, very nice, but I have a problem, I'm left-handed, while the knife is for right-handed people.
can I change it with the same knife for right-handed people?


I bought this for my boyfriend to use as he is a sushi chef and needed new knives. He loves it and uses it every day. I recommend.

Super Knives

These knives are superb, excellent visually and just as good to use.
the service was great, delivery to me in the UK in less than a week.

New kitchen knife

I recently bought 2 knives: one for my son-in-law and another for my wife.
They are very happy with them. The quality and workmanship is excellent.
I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good kitchen knife that will last for years.


I own several japanese knifes but this knife was the sharpest off all. Its in use for about one Year now and its stillsuper sharp without any resharpening. The edge-retention is absolutely Incredible and the mirrorpolished blade is a shiny beauty. When i has in in my hand for the first time i was surprised by the unexspected thick handle. But the thick handle makes it even better to handle and allows 100% precise cutting. Great knife and an absolut recommendation!!!

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.


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.


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.


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.
