So we have been keeping busy but we are redesigning ourselves a bit. For several years now we have been making single bevel chef knives in the style of traditional Japanese chef knives. It is our feeling that the future of cutlery lies in the past. We are hence forth becoming a single bevel company. There are many good reasons we feel single bevel knives are better. It is a sharp edge and a strong edge. Food tends not to stick to the blade as much because it climbs up the steep bevel and falls away. From a peeling standpoint you can adjust the bevel angle and peel as thin or as thick as you like. They are easier and quicker to sharpen as you are only working one bevel. Things you cut are also flat and flush on the opposite side of the bevel. The Japanese refused to acknowledge right handed people. As such they tended to make only right handed bevels. We happen to know and like some left handed people so out of concern for their safety and convenience we will be making them in left handed as well. If you absolutely must have a double bevel we can make them on special orders.
We are also trimming our selection of blade types. We will be making our Right whale and Humpback whale and adding an Asian style Gyutou as our 8 inch size offering. and a 4 inch paring knife/utility knife. Any other design will be a custom order. We will still make what ever people would like custom but our production line will be made up of these four knives plus out famous oyster. The web site will be redesigned soon so that the shop shows it and there will be pictures of the new knives soon.
