Zoom on the history of the Japanese Handicraft Knife

As their name suggests, this knife has its origins in the famous Japanese sword, especially the katana and the sword. Contrary to Western countries, all Japanese swords have changed and evolved with these blades which are increasingly sharp. Little by little, a simple sharp sword was becoming sharper and sharper, to become a samurai weapon, and one of the most effective in history. Moreover, during this period, Japanese blacksmiths perfected their art, until they became true experts, often considered as very high personalities of the society.

From a weapon of war to a kitchen utensil

During the Katanga period, Japan became a divided and often warring country. This is why each army was able to evolve into a weapon, especially by sharpening its swords, in order to obtain an even more sophisticated and powerful weapon. However, the Japanese government completely banned the use of the katana in 1871 with the Haitorei. The Japanese government wanted to establish security and order through this law. Thus, the production of this edged weapon was stopped. In times of peace, people decided to introduce the knife in the kitchen to make it easier to cut meat on the spot. Japanese kitchen knives
