The JapanChef collection consists of high quality "no frills" affordable stainless steel knives. These professional quality knives are made from ice-hardened steel, traditionally forged and sharpened with the typical Japanese "V" edge. You can sharpen your JapanChef knife with a whetstone; like any quality knife, it should never be placed in the dishwasher. If you're looking for a kitchen knife used by professionals in the restaurants, you've found it here! Each knife sold separately.
