Japanese Knives

Wa-Bocho, or Japanese-style knives, trace their origin to the days of the Samurai warriors. In fact, the same hand-forging methods used to produce Samurai swords are still used today to create these classic kitchen blades, which are among the finest cutlery available in the culinary world. In traditional Japanese cuisine, special emphasis is placed on highlighting a chef's skill through intricate knife work. To achieve this mastery, Japanese chefs rely on a variety of specialized Wa-Bocho to prepare vegetables, fish, and meat. Today, Japanese knife manufacturers also make Western-style knives to cater to the needs of chefs all over the world. Having a sharp knife is an essential part of cooking because it will affect the integrity of the ingredients.
