Starter Knives

First Japanese knife? 

Fans of Japanese steel all have a starting point. A gateway blade to years of cutting satisfaction!

We've assembled this small selection with the first-timer in mind. These are beautiful, practical knives that we think are well suited to preparing everyday meals in the home kitchen. Very good first-buys for home users without specialist needs.

Multi-use, pointy, mid-length, not-too-pricey knives with wonderful cutting feel, each offering impressive cost performance and usability.
