Japanese kitchen knife by Masashi Kobo for Niwaki


Japanese kitchen knives have a reputation for being among the best in the world, but don’t let the hype obscure their practicality. Niwaki stocks knives for all budgets and levels of enthusiasm, from the entry-level Niwaki Mainichi range (Santoku, Gyoto, Nakiri and Petty) which marries Japanese steel with Western-style handles, to the hand-finished-in-a-tiny-Sanjo-workshop majesty of the Masashi Kobo Damascus knives.
