Our innovative KAGAYAKI CarboNext product range uses next generation carbon tool steel that we call “CarboNext”. Our CarboNext blades allow you to enjoy all the usual advantages of traditional high carbon steels (i.e. Excellent edge sharpness, excellent edge retention and ease of sharpening), but they offer the additional benefit of improved rust resistance.
The blade is made of solid CarboNext special high carbon tool steel that is hardened to HRc. 59-61. The knife features superb fit and finish, full tang construction, and comfortable black pakkawood handles. Its thin blade has a slow gradual taper and is finely ground, which results in excellent cutting performance and blade balance.
Because this knife offers greater rust resistance and ease of maintenance than regular high carbon steel knives, we particularly recommend CarboNext Knife to first-time users of carbon steel knives. Professionals and serious amateurs will love their superb blade geometry, cutting performance and quality construction.
The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Sujihiki is particularly useful for trimming away sinew and fat from meat, finely slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

Information About The Care & Maintenance of CarboNext Knives
While our CarboNext knives have better rust resistance than other plain carbon steel knives, they will discolor and rust if not cared for properly. To keep your knife in good condition, please do not leave it in wet or salty conditions for a long time. After hand washing the knife, we recommend that you carefully rinse the knife with plain warm water and dry it with a clean cloth. It is important to make sure that there is no water left between the blade tang and the handle, or bolster, because this can lead to corrosion.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
Question: Why did the Kagayaki Craftsman Team develop the CarboNext Knife Series?
From the customer’s viewpoint, Carbon steel knives can offer great sharpness, edge retention and ease of resharpening. However, Carbon steel knives can also discolor and rust easily, so they require regular care and maintenance.
From the craftsman’s viewpoint, Carbon steel materials are difficult to handle during the manufacturing process and require additional care and maintenance to be kept in good condition.
The Kagayaki Craftsman Team has always sought to make the most practical and efficient knives, which meet the needs of professionals. CarboNext steel was selected to meet these requirements and considerations. CarboNext steel knives provide the same high levels of sharpness, edge retention and ease of resharpening that common Carbon steel knives provide, however, CarboNext knives offer better rust resistance and are easier to maintain.
The knife arrived promptly and safe, well packed. The impression of the knife was good, very sharp and cut very nice. The knife a little too long. Need to pay extra customs to get it into country, which was a surprise and which I did not consider at first when I put order with Japanesechefsknife. Thought this was included in extra charge for freight, as other company’s do toll clearance.
Bought this knife for my partners birthday. He is a chef and loves buying his knives from this store. He was very chuffed to add this one to his collection and highly rates it.
Not first time buy from JCK. But sure is not last time buy !
The absolute best knife to use for slicing fish. I am very happy with the quality of the blade. It stays sharp and is low on maintenance.
It has been a month since I used this knife. I've only used stainless steel knives. This knife, made with the advantages of carbon steel, has a different feel than a stainless knife. This knife is light, hard and has a good cutting taste. However, the downside is that you have to wipe it dry after using it and washing it. And the handle is small compared to the size of the knife, which is inconvenient. but good value for money
