Introducing the Shibata Koutetsu line of R-2 knives, crafted by the legendary blade smith and sharpener Takayuki Shibata, in his workshop located in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, Japan. Shibata-san's unique design philosophy is the driving force behind these exceptional knives.
After struggling to find the perfect knife for his kitchen needs, Shibata-san decided to create a new type of knife that would combine the best features of a gyuto and a nakiri. The result is a blade with a slight curve that strikes the perfect balance between reducing friction and ensuring optimal food contact. The knife also features a sharp point that makes it ideal for scoring vegetables, squid, or chicken.
The Shibata Koutetsu knives are made using R-2 powdered stainless steel alloy for the jigane (inner layer), which is then coated with a hagane (outer layer) of softer stainless steel. A beautiful hand-executed rough finish is added to aid in food release.
Crafted to the highest standards, these laser-like blades are well matched with our Premium Rosewood and Ebony handles. Shibata Koutetsu knives are sure to impress any discerning chef.
Experience the difference for yourself with the Shibata Koutetsu line of knives.
