This small utility knife is light and agile. It’s perfect for paring, slicing & chopping fruit and small veg as well as for light butchery and small fish. It also has a very useful sharp point.
The ‘Bunka’ is a less well-known Japanese blade profile characterised by its cut-off diagonal tip. Our ‘Mini’ version is extremely versatile, providing a smaller, more agile alternative to the Santoku. The Mini Bunka is ideal for chopping small fruit and veg.
The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the Chef’s knife. It is the most important knife for most Chefs and the length means it is great for larger items like cabbage, lettuce or bunches of herbs.
A quick but effective way of maintaining the edge of a sharp knife. With its smooth #2000 grit surface, the rod works by honing (straightening) and sharpening at the same time. It is lightweight, easy to clean and protected by a 3-part shock absorber system. Use weekly at home or daily in a professional kitchen.
