Japanese Knives & Cutlery

Japanese Knives

Japanese knives are renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship, sharpness, and performance in the kitchen. Test your cooking abilities and improve your skills with our top-of-the-range Japanese knives. Discover the much-coveted santoku knives and gyuto knives from chef's favourite brands like Sumikama and Takamura Knives, and don’t forget essential accessories such as our effective and high-quality Japanese sharpening whetstones to keep your tools in pristine condition for your next chop.

Our selected range of chef's knives is sure to keep your cooking skills sharp and immaculate. Besides the aforementioned santoku and gyuto knives, you will also find a range of more specialized items like bread knives and butter knives and other useful items like folding knives and knife sets - all from Japanese brands we love like Sori Yanagi, Higonokami, Shimomura, and more.

Many of these knives are made with specialized Japanese steels which offer excellent edge retention and sharpness. The most important choice is between carbon steel and stainless steel. Carbon steel knives offer the best cutting performance but require more maintenance to prevent rusting. Stainless steel knives are more rust-resistant but don't hold an edge as well. At Japanese Taste, we provide detailed information on the different Japanese knife styles, brands, and features to help you make informed purchases. Elevate your cooking experience with the right Japanese knife!
