Kin Knives – Kitchen Samurai

A recent discovery of ours is Kin Knives, beautifully hand made Kitchen knives, imported from Japan. The knives are exclusively designed and made for Kin who feature a generous range for use in all aspects of food preparation. including blade care, chopping boards and maintenance. Company Director Harriet Murland, kindly demonstrated the simple but essential ritual of keeping a kin blade sharp. We were amazed at their precision and sharpness, cutting wafer thin see-through slices of vegetables with ease. Each knife is unique and so beautiful due to the laminated blades that have a wonderful marbling to the steel. Our particular favourite is the Tanaka Santoku, a perfect all round prep knife, beautifully presented in a gift box. It would make the perfect gift for any budding Gordon Ramsay (who by the way, has a signature range), or any number of celebrity chefs who choose to use Kin Knives. After all, if it’s good enough for Gordon, it’s good enough for us.
