Kitchen Knives & Cutting
Eden Kanso Aogami, an unprecedented cutting experience
The special kitchen knives of the Kanso Aogami Series are hand forged in Japan. Kanso means simplicity in Japanese and refers to the goal of the development of those knives: giving you the ultimate cutting experience at a price as low as possible, without compromise.
Aogami refers to the major asset of this series: the steel type. The kitchen knives are made from Blue Paper Steel; a steel type with a hardness of 62-63 HRC. The Kanso Aogami knives can be sharpened extremely thin. The Blue Paper Steel is extremely suitable for this and is strong enough to maintain this combination without breaking. The traditional Japanese handle in ‘red sandalwood’ is asymmetrical and therefore very comfortable in your hand. Available in a left-handed and right-handed version.
Use and maintenance of these knives
The unique Blue Paper Steel of the Kanso Aogami has excellent characteristics for fantastic cutting. The steel must be maintained with care and love. This steel is quite sensitive to rust. But rust can absolutely be prevented if you dry the knives immediately after use. In time, a natural oxidation layer will be formed, a so-called patina, that protects the steel against rust.
5 years warranty!
You have 5 years warranty on the kitchen knives for material and manufacturers defects. Please be aware that rust specks on these knives are no material defect and that they are not dishwasher safe.
