Characteristics and Difference of Regular Version and ES Version

Both Regular Version and ES version are hand sharpened by skillful and experienced Master Craftsman.

Hereby we introduce the characteristics and difference of Regular Version and ES Version.

  • Regular Version has good enough sharpness and you can start using it without sharpening process and enjoy good cutting performance. One of the benefits for choosing the Regular Version is you can re-sharpen and make your own final sharp edge by yourself for your own cutting needs and preference. Advanced, Experienced and serious users can understand how important it is and this benefit.
  • ES version has much steeper and thinner edge which makes outstanding and maximized cutting performance. We have received many requests from our customers for the fully sharpened edge knives when they start using the knives. This is our recommendation for your needs.

Master Craftsman modifies edge shape and bevel for left hand use by hand sharpening process at the following additional cost:

  • Petty + US$6
  • Santoku, Gyuto + $10
  • Western Deba, Chinese Cleaver, Slicer + $10
  • Honesuki, Sujihiki 20% extra of the regular price, because we need to change the grinding geometry from the beginning step for 100% left handed version. 

Left handed versions are normally in stock for immediate shipping. However, when it became out of stock, please allow 3 to 6 days for shipping.

For your information, many of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.

However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.

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

 

Important

This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.

  • Before starting to use the knife, please wash it with water for cleaning up.
  • Please do not put this knife in the dishwasher, please hand wash.
  • Please do not leave this knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • *After using, please hand wash it and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. (Includes bolster and handle part)
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • 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.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, hard foods such as lobster and crab which have hard surface.
  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.
