  • 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 White #2 carbon steel and clad in a polished stainless steel. This model will have better toughness, will sharpen more easily, and will take a sharper edge than the Blue Super model. Conversely, it is more reactive to moisture and acidic foods, and will require more frequent sharpening than the Blue Super model.  They are also a bit thinner at the spine compared to the Blue Super.
