Collection: Japanese Knives

SAKAI TAKAYUKI 〜INOX Nanairo〜

Just like “rainbow” in English, “nanairo” is a Japanese term describing a multitude of colors, making it the perfect name for this new, colorful line of traditional Japanese knives. Born out of a collaboration between Sakai knife makers and masters of traditional
Echizen lacquerware, these beautiful and hygienic knives are waterproof and durable to a degree unattainable with wooden handles.
The Nanairo handles are injection molded from ABS and finished in a wide variety of different designs, all with a sense of traditional
Japanese beauty.
Taking up a Nanairo knife in your hands, it will feel well balanced, pleasantly warm to the touch and overall similar to one with a standard wooden handle. The blades are made from stainless, high-performance molybdenum steel and are ground and sharpened by the craftsmen of Sakai. Their excellent geometry and sharpness make them suitable for demanding professional use.
Available in 14 designs
