Professional Japanese knives at affordable prices
Asian knives differ from standard knives by having a more delicate edge that is better suited to cutting lighter Asian ingredients. The blades are often made of a hard, thin stainless steel for better durability and precision while the knife itself feels more balanced in the hand. As such, they are a very popular professional cook's knife.
Japanese knives range from double-edged knives that can be sharpened on both sides to traditional single-edged knives. Shop Santoku knives for superior precision, Nakiri knives for cutting vegetables, Sashimi knives and the Yaxell Gou Kiritsuke Knife that resembles a Samurai sword for cleanly gliding through fish, vegetables, meat and more.
