Sharpening and Care 



 

To sharpen kai knives in the traditional Japanese and therefore professional way, we recommend a number of specific ceramic-bonded whetstones. Moreover, the range also offers electronic grinders, as well as care accessories and blade protectors.

A detailed manual for re-working symmetric and asymmetric blades with traditional Japanese whetstones can be found here.
