The origin of Japanese cutlery is rooted in the history of the Katana or Samurai sword as we know it. The history of the Katana and Japanese steel goes back 800 years and that is how much experience Japanese knife making is based upon.
We are excited to announce an expansion of our operations with a physical shop dedicated to traditional handmade Japanese chef knives, knife sharpening service, sharpening stones and accessories. This store will be a unique addition to the Auckland kitchenware scene and will complement our existing knife sharpening services.
Being a Chef I came across the prestige Japanese brand Masakage and I purchased their handmade gyuto knife. It stood out to be the best in the market to me because you can see that the bladesmith who made this knife placed their soul into it.
