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.

What makes our products so special

What’s in the box?

Our products are made with love and care in Japan, but it’s with you where their story lives on. And for that to happen, we need to make sure they arrive with you in one piece! We carefully wrap each item in bubble wrap and traditional Japanese newspapers (you’ll often find a Japanese crossword or sudoku to solve!). You’ll also receive a short guide on how to care for and cherish your new tableware. Sustainability is important to us and we’re working hard on ways to keep items safe while being kind to the planet, too.
