If the best chefs in the world use this knife, that probably mean it really is the best. Coming straight from Japan, a family that used to specialise in crafting katana has now been making kitchen knives that stay sharp for over 100 years!

Formerly reserved for chefs and celebrities, the small Japanese manufacturer has just opened up the sale of its best knife to the whole world. Read on to find out how much it costs, how to get one and why top chefs use it.

What is this handmade Japanese knife used by the best chefs?

Introducing the Aikyo knife. It's a versatile kitchen knife handmade by a Japanese blade-making family called Nakamura.

The Nakamura family has been forging blades by hand for seven generations now. Their unique skills have been passed down from father to son, and until now they have never sold their creations to the public. Instead, they sell to acquaintances, renowned restaurateurs and celebrities.

Gordon Ramsay, Michael Caines… and many other gastronomic giants have already been seduced by the perfection and balance of these knives. With their surgical precision, unrivalled sharpness and perfectly balanced handles, star chefs recognise these blades as the symbol of culinary perfection.

Each blade is hand-forged in the heart of the Japanese mountains.

Formerly reserved for the elite, the family has decided to make accessible what was once exclusive. With the vision that every passionate cook, whether professional or amateur, deserves to experience the magic of effortless, precise cutting.

Comment s’utilise le couteau Aikyo ?

The Aikyo knife is not like other knives in that it is not designed for a single use. On the contrary, it is designed to be multifunctional and capable of performing over 95% of kitchen tasks on its own.

It effortlessly slices, debones, shreds and flakes all kinds of meat, fish, vegetables and herbs with unrivalled precision and ease.

That's why some top chefs call it the "perfect knife", because it does everything effortlessly and is so much fun to use.

Here are a few demonstration videos:

The Aikyo knife is so effective at any task because it has been designed and perfected by the Nakamura family for seven generations (over 200 years).

Its blade offers a perfect shape that adapts easily to any culinary task. Its alloy is kept secret by the family, making the blade flexible, unbreakable and, above all, extremely sharp.

Why is the Aikyo knife used by top chefs?

✅ 100% Japanese cutlery craftsmanship - Each Aikyo knife is made in person by the Nakamura family in their workshop in Japan.

✅ Unrivalled sharpness - For over 200 years the Nakamura family has been perfecting the alloy of this knife, formerly used for samurai katanas.

✅ A versatile shape - The Aikyo knife alone can be used for over 95% of kitchen tasks.

✅ Perfect grip - The knife has a Japanese cherry wood handle that fits the shape of the hand perfectly. The hole in the blade lets you put your index finger in to slice the toughest foods effortlessly.

✅ Unrivalled durability - The blade of the Aikyo knife doesn't need to be sharpened often because it's so tough, which is why the family offers a 100-year guarantee on it.

✅ Economical and practical solution - It's more economical and practical to have a single knife that lasts a lifetime than several that have to be changed every two or three years.

✅ Unique piece - Each Aikyo knife is a unique piece with its own charm.

✅ Ideal gift
- Anyone who appreciates cooking, knives, Japan or the quality of a fine piece of craftsmanship will be delighted to receive this knife as a gift.

Quel est le prix et le temps de livraison ?

When you consider that each Aikyo knife is a unique piece of work handcrafted by the Nakamura family, and that each knife takes at least one or two days to make, you naturally expect it to be sold at a very high price.

Nevertheless, against all expectations, and in the spirit that every cooking enthusiast should be able to own a quality knife. The family is offering its handmade knives for sale at $159, which is far from excessive for a knife handcrafted by a Japanese master cutler.

And there's more to come! As part of their European launch, the Nakamura family is offering the first 100 knives for sale at just $79, a 50% discount!

With Christmas approaching fast, this is also a great gift idea.

The chefs recommend it:

"I found it aesthetically pleasing and extremely durable. The blade has a good curve, allowing you to rest your middle finger on it comfortably. Chopping all manner of vegetables and meat was easy. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced chef’s knife get Aikyo Japanese Knife."

- Bernard Descoteaux, Head Chef.

"I like the very classic Japanese look, with full tang and visible rivets. The blade curves up at the end, which makes certain tasks a little easier, particularly quickly mincing herbs. The handle, while not rounded, is incredibly smooth, so none of the edges dig into the palm. And the bolster is nicely curved to fit the middle finger underneath, with thumb placed comfortably on the blade."

- Emiliano Endrizzi, Head Chef.

"This is the most widely recognized style of chef’s knife in the West. The belly of the blade has a pronounced curve that tapers to a sharp tip, which is best if you prefer to cut using a rocking motion (meaning the knife never leaves the cutting board, and you use the belly curve to slice through food)."

- Ellie Clarke, Executive Chef.
