How do you choose the best Japanese knife? 

Firstly, I love Japanese knives for their;

  • Lightweight hold 
  • Sharp and strong steel
  • Durable designs


Secondly, I love to support;

  • Traditional skill
  • Handmade 
  • Small, community minded regions


Thirdly, I recommend the best Japanese knives for their intended purpose.
