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.

The first handshake speaks to the the welcome we received at the new shop, a reflection of the ongoing kindness, professionalism, and support.
The second was given to me by the knife itself, on first contact. It was in the perfect finishing where the corian meets the tang, everywhere. It is also in the balance of this knife. You pinch it ever so slightly at te the very beginning of the blade, keep your grip light.... Hello!
It said it is designed for work. I have had it for a month now; it spoke the truth.
Yes, it's sharp out of the box, yadda yadda. Give it a little care on a whetstone, your own edge (mine is 60/40 at 8000 grit), and see how this workhorse responds. Amazing geometry, effortless.
Close your eyes and buy it..... and let the good people of Sharp Edge serve you. Your hand will thank you.
Excellent product excellent service
I have order a few thing already and the delivery is always on point. Always find what I was looking for
This is the first purchase from your company. Most of my knives are stainless Japanese steel but I wanted to try a carbon steel knife. Aogami #2 was the steel I was looking for and while I regularly view your web site, this knife caught my eye. I'm sorry I have not used the knife yet, own too many knives but will use it shortly. The purchasing process was fast and efficient. Purchasing knifes and having them shipped to the USA in 3 days was a pleasant surprise. I did have a question regarding the coating put on the knife by the smith to retard getting a patina during shipping. Your support was fast to respond and very friendly. The overall experience was great, keep up the good work!
Ok, having lived in the near Trieste, Italy, I love Slovenia. But while venturing into the mysterious world of Tamahagane, I found in SharpEdge the comfortable place wherein to explore and learn I was looking and needed for. Adequately deep documentation articles easily linkable through the product descriptions. Clear video tutorials in their Youtube channel. Maybe you can find some knive at a slightly better price elsewhere (it's not easy to find Japanese knives shops in Europe though), but since I desired to support SharpEdge, I waited for a discount and bought from them. And now I'm very happy to have in the kitchen the valiant help of Mr Kurosaki! And this is only the beginning...
This is the second knife I have purchased from sharpedgeshop. The knife arrived promptly and in perfect condition. The knife is beautifully made and definitely worth the price. The pattern is slightly lighter than pictured but still very eye catching (see picture below). I purchased the knife with a leather saya. The saya is very well made but is designed for an 8 inch knife and is a bit too big.
The knife I had ordered had a small defect and was swiftly emailed regarding the situation. Situation was rapidly dealt with.
When receiving the knife, it is excellent quality, really well finished and very sharp. Holds its well and is very comfortable (even for a lefty). Knife ordered was Kumokage Bunka Aogami #2 Kuro-uchi Damascus 180mm. Highly recommend this knife for a do it all type of option.
Would highly recommend sharpedgeshop and will be buying from again.
Everything perfect, first class treatment, the sales service is very friendly and they inform you of all the doubts you may have. The knives as they appear in the description. They are sent very well packaged and very sharp, customization is a great point in favor, doing a very professional job, a great team.
If you’re into sharpening your own knives then you won’t go wrong with this kit. Perfect for beginners and intermediate level of sharpening. Would absolutely recommend Sharp Edge Shop. Great service, really fast delivery.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ this knife holder is something I had been looking for ages. Your common magnetic knife holder is a semi metal one and requires a drill and screws to mount to a wall.
This one is something extra. It’s wooden which in itself is not that uncommon. Good material against the metal. But it also has a strong 3M tape covering the whole of the back side and that is one strong tape.
This means that you don’t have to break your wall with screw holes which is nice if it is made of tiles. You just peel the tape cover off, adjust the location and make it level and then softly but firmly press it against your chosen spot. That’s it, very easy and it works perfectly.
The delivery was very fast and well packaged. Knife looks amazing, fit and finish is great and very sharp out of the box.
It is my first usuba so I can't really compare with other similar knives, but I'm really happy with it.
It's very nice looking, even better than in the pictures. It sits confortably in your hand and the weight is well balanced. The blade is quite heavier than a regular chef knife so it took me some times to get used to it, but I immediately enjoyed using it.
Except for a little fruit knife, that is also my first japanese knife and I can know understand all the love people have for them.
Now, about Sharpedge itself: the shipping was faster than I expected, the package was well made (I can't see how the knife could have been damaged during transport). That was my first time doing business with them, but they are now in my favourites.
