Learn More About Japanese Knives

The Inspiration of Kaitsuko

Japanese knives, which have been popular for several decades or even centuries, have managed to gain a reputation worldwide. It is said that these knives are the sharpest in the world.

Initially, cutlery workshops or forgeries exclusively crafted Japanese swords. Often considered weapons, the production of these swords was halted. The artisans and blacksmiths then focused on the food sector, exclusively producing knives. Each Japanese knife is unique and must be used for specific purposes.

Japanese knives can be made from different materials. However, Damascus steel undeniably stands out from other types of steel. Indeed, its sharpness and durability are no longer a secret. It also has the distinction of offering the most beautiful blades in the world. This steel is highly appreciated by many chefs for its appearance and unparalleled performance.

To define it, we can say that Damascus steel knives are composed of two or more different steels. Initially, Damascus steel was made in India or Uzbekistan. Artisans originally used an Indian steel called wootz, which had a high carbon content. These blades were mainly used to design weapons and swords. The production of Damascus swords began in 300 BC and lasted until the late 1750s. Following the depletion of wootz, the artisanal expertise was somewhat lost. It wasn't until the 19th century that blacksmiths began to take an interest in this technique again. In the 1820s, a new manufacturing process was discovered. The artisanal forging technique involves assembling two to three different steels together. They are then fire-welded by hammering to obtain a solid block. The blacksmith then reheats the block to stretch and fold it onto itself. It is then rewelded. These operations can be repeated infinitely. They allow the blacksmith to create hundreds of layers, thus achieving amazing and unique patterns. Heating temperatures can reach 1300-1400° degrees. As you understand, the characteristics of Damascus steel lie in its resistance and originality.

To best satisfy you, Kaitsuko offers unique and original knives that incorporate these different manufacturing techniques. Our collections and engravings are unique. We are proud to offer you, beyond quality products, express delivery times within 24 to 48 hours. We are available to assist you with all your purchase requests.
