Recommendation of Japanese Chef Knife

Posted on June 10, 2016 by Hiro Nakamura | 0 comments

Received the message saying ‘I want to buy one or a set of knives. But I want to know most precious knives not as price tag but its history and profession on knife making. What brands can you recommend to me?

When I recommend knives to customer, I always imagine about the user. How he wants to use, what is his need, preference, style, shape, etc.  

We often recommend Sakai Takayuki knives since they are reasonable and popular. In this case, however, I recommend Yu Kurosaki knives as customer mentioned its history and profession.

You can see his knife collection here;

Yu Kurosaki is a young talented craftsman who follows the traditional knife making of Takefu region which is well known for its professional knife making history in Japan. He is very ambitious for making unique knives and spread the name of Takefu to other countries. We value his passion and profession. Needless to say, quality of his knives are superb. Comparing to famous brand knives, his knives are reasonable for its quality.
