Traditional Japanese Knife Styles

The Japanese style knives we present to you in Korin’s collection are all hand made in Japan according to the highest standards of quality and careful attention to detail. Traditional Japanese knives are sharpened or grounded only on one side of the blade to create a razor sharp edge, and a slightly concave edge on the reverse side. This design creates an overall sharper cutting edge, makes resharpening easier, and allows for more sensitive culinary work.
