About Japanese Knifes

A Japanese kitchen knife is modeled after Katana (Japanese sword) and its sharpness fascinates chefs all over the world. The big difference between a Japanese and Western kitchen knife is that the former is single-bevel, while the latter is double-bevel. A single-bevel knife cuts into slightly to left and separates parts of ingredients more easily, so it makes your chopping faster. It also provides a clean cut surface without damaging the ingredient’s tissue.

It is staple to use a Japanese kitchen knife in order to learn techniques for Sushi and Washoku.
