Our clients are very positive

  • "The knife is perfect! Cool that dropping a tomato on the knife actually works! "
    Rogier from Leiden
  • "I have used a lot of chefknives as an amateur chef. But I never experienced such quality as the Santoku knife of Nipponblades. The sharpness and precision amaze and delight me every time I use it. Actually I can throw away the rest of my chef's knives, because I never use them. The knife is beautifully packaged, what makes it look very authentic."
    Leander from Arnhem
  • "My experience before using this knife went to the knives of Zwilling where I rather not talk about. Because of the soft blades (powder steel) you have to grind often, quite often. It is a world of difference. I can not even compare it with the traditional forged Japanese knives. "
    Piotr from Rotterdam
  • "I often use the knife to cut delicate dishes (with an ordinary knife you crush the ingredients. (with a really sharp knife this will not happen)."
  • ‘The knife is great, had to get used to the length, but it did not took long to adjust. I notice  now that different parts of blade can used for different purposes. The end of the blade is perfect for cutting vegetables and meat.’
    Astrid from Noordwijkerhout
  • "I gave the knife as a birthday gift to my husband. He is a martial arts teacher with Japanese swords. He is used to the sharpness of Japanese swords and knives, but this surpassed everything! He is particularly pleased with the fact that he can cut all the ingredients paper thin."
    Kitty from Beuningen
