Kikubari (きくばり) means 'mindfulness' and the Kikubari knife from our Japanese style carbon steel knife selection also calls you to be mindful in the kitchen. The Kikubari is a Yanagi (sushi) knife and with a slim profile and a length of up to 26 cm, it can precisely cut through pretty much most things that you throw at it.

Key features:

  • 2mm thick blade made from high carbon steel
  • Good edge retention
  • Easy to resharpen
  • The larger 26 cm version weighs 157 gm & the 21.5 cm version weight 130 gm 
  • Good for slicing vegetables and big meat & fish fillets

Even carving a Turkey for that festive meal will be a breeze with the Kikubari. Available in 2 different sizes and 3 gorgeous colors, you will never run out of options with the Kikubari. 

The knife blade is made from recycled leaf springs, which are recovered from the suspension system of trucks and cars, while the handle is made from varnished Golden Cassia wood, native to Vietnam. If you go for the light or brown options with the Kikubari, please note that slight variation in color is expected as the wood is natural. 

Handmade products from a small family run blacksmith cooperation. From the carbon steel blade to the handle, everything is hand made and perfectly imperfect.

Please consider when purchasing that each and every knife is individual, slightly different and small beauty flaws are there, which will not influence the performance of the knife!
