The Aiko (あいこ, アイコ) Damascus Series Knives available

  • 9.5-inch Chef Knife
  • 8-inch Chef Knife
  • 7.5-inch Bread Knife
  • 7.5-inch Cleaver Knife
  • 7-inch Santoku Knife
  • 6-inch Boning Knife
  • 5-inch Utility Knife

Our eye-catching and unique handle design is made from burl wood and blue resin, which is chemically stabilised. The stabilising process makes the wood tougher, super-durable and less likely to warp or crack. 

  • Precision-forged blades with an ultra-premium, imported, Japanese VG10 cutting core at 60±1 Rockwell hardness for unrivalled performance and incredible edge-retention.
  • 67-layers of high-carbon stainless steel cladding provide exceptional strength, durability and stain resistance.
  • Ruthlessly sharp, scalpel-like edge is hand finished to a mirror-polish within a staggering 8-12° degree angle, using the traditional 3-step 'Honbazuke' method.
  • Nitrogen-cooled for enhanced hardness, flexibility and corrosion resistance.
  • Featuring exquisite, Feather blade pattern for striking, stand-out beauty.
  • Precisely tapered blade minimises surface resistance for a buttery smooth cutting motion.
  • Bolster provides a perfectly engineered balance and gently encourages a comfortable and proper pinch grip.
  • Meticulously constructed, ultra-premium G-10 Garolite handle. Highly impervious to heat, cold and moisture with military-grade strength and life-long durability.
  • Ergonomic handle shape for superior hand control, agility and comfort.
  • Hidden tang for superb robustness and quality.

Damascus blades are made from high carbon steel with small amounts of chromium in the alloy. While high in carbon steel, the blade can show rust if not cared for properly (please see our blog for care guide). You should ensure to keep the blades clean and dry thoroughly to avoid rust or staining. Hand wash only in warm water. These knives are not suitable for cutting bone.

We recommend using a whetstone to sharpen your knives.

We have a range on our website and also have some articles on our blog, which talk you through the best way to look after and sharpen your knives, including recommended angles, etc

Knives should never go in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent is very abrasive, and along with the banging around that happens during a wash cycle, will take the sharp edge right off your knife. The high heat can also damage the handle or misshape them. Always wash knives by hand in the sink with dish soap and water and dry after.

If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, within 30 days of placing your order, we will refund you for your purchase with no questions asked.

Stunning 4 piece set

Absolutely beautiful!!! 2 week wait time - so worth the wait. Extra sharp! Already pricked my finger touching the tip. 😂 Will definitely be ordering more to make a complete set.
The knives are very well packaged. No damage. Very excited about my new knives. Now I can throw away a few I've had for years. I only want this stunning artwork displayed.

Excellent start to finish

Saw these knives browsing, I have been looking for a good set of knives for while, these caught my eye being decorative, I bought the 4 knife set.
I ordered these and they arrived in less time as stated, which I’d great, packaging good, arrived in good condition.
I use a pinch grip style cutting method and My first use and wow they handle well, and feel comfortable, I was slightly worried that I couldn’t handle these so well without not seeing or getting to grips with them before purchase.
But these have exceeded my expectations, very sharp and well balanced well for me anyway, these are a beautiful knife set and I’m glad I chose them.
My worry is sharpening them, although i use a 1000 & 5000 grit whetstone on my older knives it scares me to sharpen new knives when that time comes.
