The knifemaker Kanetsugu produces high quality kitchen knives at an extremely reasonable price. We hope that you will find their value-for-money to be as impressive as we have!

The grind on the Pro-J series of kitchen knives are impeccable! Kanetsugu calls this the Hamaguri grind (which is a type of clam) which tells you that it is a convex grind. The hammering on the blade is absolutely gorgeous, you must observe it in real life in order to understand, every angle of light brings out a different facet of the hammered finish. The red trim near the bolster of the handle gives the knife an absolutely premium look without being too playful. The core steel is the ever reliable ZA-18 and with Kanetsugu's sub-zero heat treatment process takes the steel to HRC60 without being brittle and "chippy".

The black micarta scales used for the handles are completely water resistant and is highly durable, combined with the seamless design (no gaps!) of the handle and bolster, this makes the knife very easy to clean and hygienic at the same time.
