  • Kintaro knives are designed, forged, and sharpened in one workshop; closely handled and overseen by certified craftsmen in Echizen. They are committed to great quality and inherit and pass down knife-making philosophy and skill-set. This brand is a great example of craftsmanship from Echizen.

    These knives have an excellent profile, grind, and distal taper, as well as clean fit and finish. Both the kurouchi and migaki models are clad in stainless steel. The stainless cladding reduces the reactive surface area of the knives to the few millimeters in between the cutting edge and lamination line.

    The core is Blue Super carbon steel and clad in a kurouchi stainless steel. This model will have better edge retention and corrosion resistance than the White #2 model. Conversely, it will not get quite as sharp, will be more time-consuming to sharpen, and will be a bit more brittle than the White #2 model.  They are also a tiny bit thicker at the spine than the White #2.
