Inspired by Japanese Tradition

What makes Nihon knives so special?

Inspired by Japanese tradition, ProCook Nihon knives possess strength and pinpoint precision for the best performance. Nihon knives have a stainless-steel blade with a super-sharp cutting edge which is stone ground by hand, and a rear bolster for perfect balance. Coupled with a smooth European Beech handle these knives are superbly comfortable to hold and a joy to use.

Japanese knives are preferred by many chefs for their thin, precise blades and lightweight handling. The elegant design of Japanese knives has been perfected over many centuries to preserve the flavour of fresh ingredients such as fish, meat and vegetables during food preparation.

We’ve designed our Nihon range to encompass the very best of Japanese knife design with time tested materials and engineering. X50 stainless steel blades include 15% chrome for high corrosion resistance, while lightweight beechwood handles reduce fatigue allowing for fast, precise chopping.

Encompassing the most popular knife styles the Nihon range includes traditional nakiri and santoku knives, as well as paring, utility, chefs, bread and carving knives.
