The Zuion line is the best from Seki Kanetsugu, a factory open since 1918 in the heart of the Japanese knife-making city of Seki. We discovered them at the Seki Outdoor Knife Festival in 2013 and have admired their products ever since.

The best sharpening tools for Japanese knives are leather strops and fine whetstones.

Japanese chef knives are brittle and are designed for cutting soft tissue foods. High Carbon steel chef knives can rust if not kept dry.
