Features of Kai Seki Magoroku Kinju & Hekiju kitchen knives

The knives of this collection were designed with funcionality and durability in mind. The typical Japanese blade shape in combination with the sleek black handle results in a timeless and minimalist look.

Seki Magoroku Kinju & Hekiju blade

The Kai Seki Magoroku Kinju & Hekiju knives are made from German steel, namely X50CrMoV15 steel. The blades of these knives are made with state-of-the-art technology. Thanks to the one-sided grind, these knives have a perfectly straight, razor-sharp edge. Ideal for cutting thin slices of fish or meat for sushi.

What is the difference between a yanagiba and a deba? Aren't both knives suitable for cutting raw meat and fish? The difference between these two knives is design: a yanagiba is meant to help you cut thin and even slices of food, whereas a deba knife is more suitable for a cutting technique like chopping. Use a deba to clean fish and chop off their heads, for example.

Seki Magoroku Kinju & Hekiju handle

The handles of the knives in this series stand out thanks to their hexagonal shape. The handle of the right-handed knives is made of pakkawood. This material is resistant to moisture thanks to the use of high-quality wood and special treatment. The handle for left-handed users is more rounded than the handle of the Kinju series. This handle consists of robust finished high-quality plastic, giving it a leather-like appearance.
