Availability: Normally ships the same day

KAGAYAKI Basic Series” knife is made with V-Gold No.1 stainless steel, heat-treated to HRc. 60. This beautiful sparkling blade is meticulously hand finished and their smooth pakkawood handles will fit your hand comfortably. We think that in terms of quality control and cutting performance this knife is a work of art, it will bring joy to home cooks and chefs alike.

Kagayaki Basic Series knives are made by Mr. Gotou’s fine Craftsman Team. For 40 years, it has been Mr. Gotou’s goal to make highly functional blades that have excellent cutting performance, blade geometry, edge sharpness and durability. He has made knives for many famous Japanese retailers and knife companies, and we recommend his knives with confidence.

The Chinese Cleaver is a highly versatile general-purpose kitchen knife that can be used to slice, chop, mince, scrape, and even crush ingredients. The tall blade of the Chinese Cleaver enables it to be safely guided with the knuckles of your free hand when 'tap chopping’, ‘push cutting’, or ‘pull cutting’. This makes it possible to cut large fruit and vegetables, such as cabbages, easily and safely.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time.

  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.

  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

    A fantastic knife

    The sharpness of the knife is outstanding. Handling this very large knife was a challenge at first. However, practice and some sticking plasters have made it my favourite when it comes to cutting meat and vegetables.

    Great Knife and Service

    The experience was positive. I had a question about the knife and they got back to me promptly. The knife arrived in excellent condition and with care instructions. The knife is a little heavy, but I like the weight. Considering the size of the knife, it is still very versatile. I recommend this knife.

    Great knife

    Bought This as a gift for my mother. She requested a sharp Japanese made knife that she can use for everything. This knife delivers. Lightweight, great handle, and so sharp it cuts the air. Awesome knife.

    Love this knig=fe!

    This knife is great for chopping vegetables and cutting meat. It is a lot safer for me to use than the chef's knife that I have been using.
