Kai began in 1908, revered for its blend of traditional samurai blacksmithing and modern manufacturing to craft knives of exceptional quality. Hailing from Seki, the historic heart of Japanese knife smithing, Kai has earned a reputation for creating knives that are not only razor-sharp and durable but also beautifully balanced and effortless to use. Since their introduction into Europe in 1980, Kai has expanded its range, innovating with designs that include Western-inspired chef’s knives and ambidextrous handles, as seen in their acclaimed Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare series, making the brand a favourite among professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts worldwide.
Our tableware has been made with love, and sometimes needs a little extra care. While the majority of our products are microwave and dishwasher safe, sudden changes in temperature are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your item, and we don’t want that.
Check out our care guide here, so you can keep your tableware looking perfect for as long as possible.
As mentioned, most of our range is dishwasher and microwave safe, except a few ‘Crackle’ glazes, if you’re unsure then drop us an email email@example.com and we’ll be able to advise.
