Japanese knives have several destinct differences compared to German knives. They tend to be lighter because most are stamped not forged. They also typically have little or no bolster and they also sharpen the edges more steeply. Here is a list of all the Japanese knives we sell on the site. It's a massive collection and we are focusing our efforts on bringing you a great selection of small blacksmiths shops that very few other retailers in the world offer.
