MASTERS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
Japanese craftsmen had been refining the art of forging katanas (Japanese swords) long before they started making kitchen knives. Centuries of experience with steel forging, combined with useful and gorgeous design, have been passed along to knife manufacturing.
Japanese knives are the best in the world.
Our aim is to bring this world to your kitchen.

At first it was a bit tedious and time-consuming due to the customs process in my country, however the Sharp Edge team was always very friendly and communication was excellent! I am very happy with the quality of my knives!! I will definitely be back for more!
I was searching for a new chef’s knife and i randomly came across sharp edge. Great variety, fast shipping and lovely service. Will definitely shop again from them.

I was looking for a 165mm santoku Saya, but there wasn’t and option. When I read the description it stated that the Saya could fit santokus from 150-190mm so I had bought it. I didn’t realize it would be as loose as it is, as the Saya has a lot of wiggle room. While I do think it is beautiful, I do worry about how loosely it fits and possibly hit or unintentionally damaging the blade.
Coltello molto efficiente, taglia netto e pulito.
È anche bello e da soddisfazione quando lo si usa.
Servizio e consegna al top.
What an aswesome knife this is. It's an incredible piece of work, and an incredible workorse, of a knife.
First off, the customer service was extremely fast and helful. I wanted a specific handle, and the responses to my questions were all on point and fast. Even after the handle business was done, I recieved great support for the whole ordering process. It only took one and a half days to ship the knife, to a tiny litte town, in the French Alpes. Thank You, Urban.
So, the knife itself. Out of the box, the knife was immaculate. the sharpness was fantastic, it even had a good Koba, if I remember correctly.
No scratches, perfect polishes, and no sharp corners.
It's a heavy knife, but it is also a very big knife. But it is balanced very well, so You feel the weight, but it doesn't strain You, after long use. It feels very good to hold, sturdy and precise. Due to the size of the knife and the handle, it could become a bit harder to handle for someone, with smaller hands, but it is still doable. Medium to large hands can grip it very comfortably.
The looks are incredible. The migaki finish is wonderful to look at. And the handle is, of course, a marvel itself. But the most stunning thing, is the kasumi finish. The jigane has an almost brushed steel like finish applied to it. It has some texture. But the hagane is very smooth and polished to a shine. It looks very nice, and unusual. Every line is crisp and stands out. Every detail is planned and looks right. After the patina developes completely, I'm sure that it will look eveen better.
The kanji all look amazing as well. And they feel very smooth, so You can't get scratched.
I never used a Kamagata Usuba, I only have a Kakugata Usuba. So I was used to the general knife shape. But handling this new knife was still a bit weird at first. Since there isn't a litte "ramp" to scoop up things with, You have to use the back of the knife. But this also works fantasitc. The back is squared, but there aren't any corners, that could cut into Your board, or on which food gets stuck.
The tip of the knife is very sturdy, and allows for very precise work. Also, there is no problem, with cutting in an arc. The knife is suitable for the most delicate cuts. Since the blade is so large, You can easliy grip the blade itself, for maximum control on the tip. Every grip I used with the knife was easy to do, and comfortable.
I currently work in the French Alpes, for a small hotel. So there are a lot of vegetables to cut. And after a collective usage of about 35 hours, I only had to strop the knife once, to get it to perfect working sharpness again. I loaded a rough strop with some green rouge, gave the knife about 5 strops, and it was good to go. So the edge retention, after 35 hours of cutting stuff, was again, fantastic. The heat treatment is on point. And I cut a variety of diffrent vegs, also harder ones, to stress the knife a bit more. It could handle everything.
If I had to critize one thing, I would have wished for a polished choil. It would be just for the looks, because, even if the choil isn't polished, it is rounded enough, so that You don't get rough spot on Your fingers, even while holding the knife for a long time.
But then again, it is a wanderer, a vagabond. So maybe a bit of roughness is just part of it.
So, all in all, a wonderful knife. It looks amazing, is a real workhorse, and is very precise. I can recommend this knife very much. If You want a very beautiful, but minimalistic, workhorse for cutting a lot of vegs, that has amzing steel, this is a very good investment. It will last an eternity, and makes cutting things up fun, even at work.
I’ve placed this mat on top of an end grain walnut cutting board, hoping the rubber surface will be kind to sharp Japanese steel cutlery. It’s stiffer than expected, subject to warp if mishandled, but a wonderful cutting platform. In a perfect world I might prefer more flexibility, less warp concerns, but it’s fine as is, cleans well, doesn’t wander all over the cutting board platform, and definitely seems kind to my white and blue steel knives.
Fits my knife perfectly!!
All of the knives I have ever bought from sharp edge have been top quality, there is no other company I trust or use more for my knives, from purchasing, to repair they are the best in the business
Hello group, the truth is how always amazed by the speed, quality and detail with which things arrive, they are real jewels and of exceptional quality, I hope to continue acquiring products with you and I always do it when there is promotion or discount since in the country that I live with the current level of devaluation sometimes many find it impossible to buy something with so many taxes. From now on, very grateful and greetings from Rosario, Argentina !!
Love the knife. Really sharp and beautiful.
If you’re a Japanese Knives lover, this is the place to go to!!
Great customer service, very helpful and eager to fulfil your needs, along with their great passion and love for what they do.
Amazing quality knives, with a great delivery service.
5 Stars in every aspects!!!
I am located in the US. I bought a Yoshida Hamono HAP 40 wide gyuto. The knife performs extremely well. The transaction went smoothly. It was a pleasure to do business with this company.
The knife arrived damaged through the post . I contacted Sharp Edge and Urban was very helpful and sent me a new knife , without any complications. I can't recommend them enough .
