Kai is the leading company in Japanese kitchen knives. Probably, you visit a general store in streets and can find some of their products if dealing with the knives.
Then, at Kai, I threw a question which said what kind of your kitchen knives was the most popular. The answer is the Damascus series of Seki Magoroku. Seki Magoroku is, not a Chinese name, one of their kitchen knife brand. It is said the Damascus ones are as the highest. There are many sorts like all-purpose kitchen knives, petit, and butcher.

How come the series could have been such popular? I asked. They say it is because those knives cut well and keep being sharp. You are difficult to find the more disgusting kitchen knife than the ones of no sharpness. These are maybe expensive a little. However, if you desired to enjoy cooking and not to kill the materials, good knives are necessary without fail.
What keeps that sharpness is the clam-shaped blade and Kai’s original blade edging method with their new-developed processing. Our naked eyes are difficult to check the clam-shape blade, since it seldom works as a kitchen knife if were as oval as we can see with the naked eyes. The shape is said to be almost used for Japanese swords. By the way, edging is the final process in making kitchen knives.

It is said the first-class kitchen knives have beauty which makes us take a look at in fascination. That beauty is found at the series. Of course, a reason is the Damascus pattern. Furthermore, it exists because it is easy to use.
