What sets our cutlery apart from the industrial standard is the high Rockwell Hardness of the steel core and the extremely thin edge for superb keenness. This combination is ideal for “sharp” cutlery. However, if the blade is forced to do a task for which it was not designed, then it leaves the edge susceptible to “chipping.”
If you chip one of our blades, with our DVD instruction and sharpening stone set, you can learn to repair it yourself, but you may also return the blade to us and we will repair it for a small fee. Sharpening does not affect the performance of the blade and is a regular form of maintenance for Japanese style cutlery.
