High-performance Japanese knives that will make your cooking experience a pleasure.
In Japan, Shibui objects (shih’BOO-ee) appear to be simple overall but they include subtle details, that balance simplicity with complexity.
Shibui inspires our knives & our lives at Six Chefs.
Shizu Hamono is a family owned knife making business in Seki, Japan.
They started producing their first knives in 1980, and continue to this day with a great deal of pride and attention to detail in their work.
Shizu Hamono care deeply about the quality of knives they produce; because of this, they make limited runs and are hard to find.
We’re one of the lucky ones who stock their Yuri and Yamato knives.
"As I used one of these knives, I became an instant fan. The quality of the steel is obvious, with folded ‘worked’ iron forming an amazingly sharp and balanced instrument. Extremely satisfied is a massive understatement."
"The blades have excellent sharpness and the handles grip well which makes them so easy to use. There's nothing like a Japanese knife and Six Chefs should be your go to place for quality and value."
