JAPANESE TRADITIONAL KNIVES
Japan is a traditional country, where hundreds of years of knowledge and experiences are passed from the master to the apprentice, from the teacher to the student. The traditional Japanese knives have originated from the Japanese swords. The manufacture techniques were improved and passed over the generations.
THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT BLADE
A perfect blade can slice or cut the ingredients effortlessly. In contrast, a knife whose cutting line is not good can smash the food, altering its texture and flavor. The Japanese traditional knives have a unique aspect by having single edged blade. This particularity allows a more precise cut – for example – cutting a fish fillet for sushi or sashimi and making it smooth and shiny. In Japanese cuisine, not only the taste but the visual aspect is very appreciated as well. Therefore, knives are extremely important.
