Blade Type

The Santoku knife, a classic in Japanese kitchens, translates to "three virtues," symbolizing its proficiency in slicing, dicing, and mincing. With a shorter, versatile blade and a balanced design, it's ideal for a range of tasks, from cutting meat to chopping vegetables, making it a beloved all-purpose tool.

Steel Type

Japanese White Steel #2, a traditional high-carbon steel, is cherished for its purity and fine grain structure, enabling razor-sharp edges, at the cost of being reactive. It is one of the easiest steels to sharpen, but cannot be left wet for even short periods otherwise rust spots can occur. If you’re fastidious in your knife maintenance, this knife can steel can be extremely rewarding to use.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Introducing

Kajibee

Kajibee knives are hand-forged by master blacksmith Kunio Ishikawa and his son. They are located in a quaint, traditional factory in the historic knife making city of Sanjo, Japan. Master Ishikawa prefers to only use traditional Japanese steel such as White, and Blue Paper steels from Hitachi Yasuki Steel. All Kajibee knives are hand-forged in a traditional wood-fired oven and then hand polished. This technique has been passed down from father to son for many hundreds of years.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon steel and as such, will require a little more care than a regular off-the-shelf knife. It must be dried shortly after use, as prolonged exposure to moisture can cause rust spots to appear. A very light coat of oil during storage also helps to prevent rust spots. A patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will occur with use.

Great for the price

Light and easy to manoeuvre. Like some others have said, the handle isn’t that nice, but really not much to complain about given the price

Excellent knife for home cooks

White carbon steel 2 (one of the sharpest steel) for $99?? i had to ordered one!! It arrived quickly and man after using a white carbon steel i never wanted to use stainless steel again. Take care of it properly and it should last long time. Ooh and its very thin and light also.
