What is the “Kiwami” series that combines eco-friendly ideas? Not wasting resources is also the first step towards being
“environmentally friendly”. Conventional kitchen knives had no choice but to throw them away when the handle broke. Replacing the handle is quite difficult, so it was common to buy a new one. Recovering and reusing discarded knives is also expensive, so most of the knives become waste. Minimal design kitchen knife “Kiwami” was born to solve such problems. Using powdered high-speed steel with high hardness, it is integrally molded from the blade to the handle with outstanding sharpness and durability. The handle can be easily replaced with high maintainability, fundamentally solving the problem of “replacement”. The reason why professional chefs love it
1. Assembled handle
With conventional knives, the handle cannot be changed freely, so even if the knife is sharp, if the handle breaks, you have to throw it away. “Kiwame” is a dedicated part that anyone can easily replace, which solves the problem of knife disposal.

2.Best class sharpness
Kitchen knives finished with high-hardness powdered high-speed steel are an excellent type of steel. Furthermore, because it is processed by heat treatment three times, the sharpness is the highest class. Not only basic home cooking ingredients, but also difficult ingredients can be easily cut.

The center of gravity is perfectly adjusted with the integrally molded design from the handle to the blade and the assembled handle. We have achieved a perfect balance that is easy to hold regardless of gender. Moreover, unlike general one-piece knives, there are no welded joints, so it is more durable and can be used for a long time.
Aluminum handles that are more durable than regular knives
The handles of kitchen knives currently on the market are generally made of wood or resin. Handles often crack or break. Repairing at a specialty store is a high hurdle, so in most cases you end up buying a new one. The “Kiwami” series uses an aircraft-grade aluminum handle, so it can be used semi-permanently.
Modern kitchen knife with minimal design
The fusion of knives and modern design blends well with interiors and brings out the original charm of steel. The refined minimal design matches the interior of the kitchen. Adding an eco-friendly concept, our “Minimal Design Kitchen Knife” was born.
