Unique technologies are applied in producing the blade of the Seki Magoroku Kinju and Hekiju knife series, making it possible to create the demanding, pointed cutting edges of traditional Japanese kitchen knives. They are ground on one side, which guarantees an optimal and straight cut. Maximum blade sharpness is achieved by the highly precise processing of the cutting edge.

The handles of the Seki Magoroku Kinju and Hekiju series differ in shape and material. The hexagonal handle of Kinju knives is made of laminated, reinforced wood for a comfortable feel when cutting. The handle is extremely water-resistant, thanks to the use of high-quality natural wood which is treated by a special process. The handle of the Hekiju knife, developed for left-handers, is more rounded than that of the Kinju series and consists of a robust resin with leather-type embossing.

Cleaning

Rinse the knives in hot water before using them for the first time. After each use, make sure that the knives are washed without delay (with a mild detergen) and dried off with a soft cloth. Acidic foods in particular should be rinsed off immediately after use.

For your own safety, you should always wipe the knife away from your body and away from the cutting edge with a cloth or towel.

Knives do not belong in the dishwasher, under any circumstances. Always wash the knives by hand in order to protect the material and maintain long-lasting sharpness.
Sharpening & Care

Ensure that all knives with natural wooden handles do not remain in water too long. Oil the handle from time to time with a little neutral vegetable or camellia oil.

It is also advisable to have the knives professionally resharpened from time to time to repair signs of wear on the cutting edge and to ensure lasting sharpness.

Due to the high degree of hardness of our knives, sharpening steels are completely unsuitable. From the traditional whetstone to a complete electric system, our range offers the right tool for each of our knives.

For the professional handling of our grinding range we inform you here.
Storing

When storing the knives, make sure that the blade does not come into contact with other metallic objects. This way, common causes of damage and staining can be avoided.

The best way to store the knives is in a knife block, in a wooden drawer insert, on a wooden magnetic knife rack, or in the drawer with a blade guard or sheath.

Made in Japan

VG MAX steel with a hardness of 61 (±1) HRC forms the entire blade's core right up to its edge. Sheathed in 32 layers of Damascus steel, the knife embodies a peerless anatomy paired with a resilient blade that is both hard and flexible at once due to its hybrid composition. The Shun Classic blades have a double-sided edge.

The slim handle made of durable pakkawood is fashioned in a traditional Japanese chestnut shape. High quality resins added to the wood make the material particularly resilient and resistant to moisture. Its typical chestnut shape ensures a comfortable and secure grip whilst cutting, thanks to a small rim on its right side. The integrated tang boosts stability and balance.
