Each knife from Aritsugu has been handmade by blacksmiths who have passed down their knowledge and skill from generation to generation over a 400 year period. From the professional cook to the home cook, their knives have been used by a wide range of customers. Aritsugu provides high quality cutlery at a reasonable price and it is said that anyone who purchases one knife from them becomes a loyal user. They sharpen each knife before it is sold to ensure its razor sharp edge and they are committed to excellent customer service.
A message from the President of Aritsugu:
包丁は、ある意味生きていて変化するので、自分の鏡であり、良きパートナーとして 手入れし、育て上げ、長くお付き合いして頂きたい。"In a sense a knife has a soul and will evolve with you. It is a mirror of reflection for you as a cook and I hope that you will nurture and take special care of your knife as a lifelong partner."
