Collection: Western Style Knives

Western-style knives have an edge that is sharpened on both sides of the blade, often referred to as doubled-edged, or double beveled.

As Western culture and cuisines reached Japan during the early 20th century, the Japanese people needed the proper tools and knives to prepare and cut Western foods, therefore becoming more familiar with using Western knives.

 With the rapid growth of popularity of Western foods, Western knives became a high demand in Japan. Knifemakers started to forge Western knives with the skills, experience, and techniques of Japanese Traditional sword and knife making.
