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.
After each use, wash your knife under running water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth; do not use harsh detergents and do not allow knives to sit in water; oil the handle from time to time with a little neutral vegetable oil
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be able to advise.
