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 it. Always wash knives by hand in the sink with dish soap and water and dry after.

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.

3 piece set

A real Piece of art and super sharp don't get any sharper than these . Really happy with quality feel too good to use. Going to purchase more

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.

Great purchase, would def recommend!

I bought the set of 6 knives for my fiancé roughly 2 months ago and she loves them! They look great, very well balanced and are still extremely sharp even though we haven’t sharpened them yet.
I’d highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a quality knife set

Best knives

I took a long time to decide if the knives were worth spending that much money on a set of knives but the answer is yes they are the best knives I have bought they look good and are also razor sharp and I love using them

Santoku knives

I was gifted my first Santokuknife. I contacted the team about a bespoke set of knives as the original knife so great. I was offered the set I was looking for at a great price. The knives are faultless, great weight well balanced and remain sharp. I cannot recommend enough, on top of everything else the look great on a knife rack when not in use, which is often
