The artisans put their heart and souls into creating these knives to give people more joy and excitement about cooking. Those who are looking for a high-quality knife should give Sakai Jikko a go.
Why are Jikko knives the best?
Jikko knives are all individually made by professional artisans and are not mass-produced via machinery, making every single knife unique. Due to the extreme sharpness achieved through Jikko’s unique method known as “Hatsuke,” all blades remain sharper for longer and have an even balance of sharpness. The Hatsuke method was developed in Sakai City after years of research and testing. By using this unique method, the perfect blade angle is made possible which ensures an even balance of sharpness and edge retention. Jikko knives make it possible to cut even finer and precisely, take a look at the video below to see what we mean.
Jikko also notices the importance of customizing a kitchen knife and allows you to change the blade length, handle color, and even lets you engrave your name into the blade. Sadly, we do not currently accept custom engraving on our store on ZenPlus, but you’re welcome to custom the handle color and blade length on selected models.
