What's behind Oishya

I love, LOVE my Sakai Kyuba knives set. My neighbours bought one a couple of months ago and each time I was visiting them, I was a little bit envious and wanted to get those knives for our household. It was my hubby's birthday last month so I purchased them for the perfect excuse 🙂 Win, win, if you ask me 🙂

Super-high quality knife with a premium. This Oishya gyuto is of really high quality. I am a perfectionist and have an eye for detail and when I inspected this knife, it did not have any defects. The details on the knife from the blade to the handle are just beautiful and clean. The VG-10 steel is easy to clean and is straight butter and glides when cutting food. One of my sharpest Japanese knives. The pictures online make it seem like the blade is more matte looking like raw carbon steel (which I was hoping for) than what I got, but that's just the stainless steel property of the VG-10. I love the Western profile of this knife with a slightly curved blade as I am a "rocker" vs a "chopper", as compared with my other Japanese knife that has a flatter blade. You may find the tsuchime along with the damascus pattern on other less expensive knives, but what makes this knife unique is the beautiful wa maple burl handle [...]

An excellent company to deal with. Having now purchased twice from them I would recommend them to anyone looking for high quantity Japanese items . My first purchase was a Nakiri knife which is fantastic. The second purchase was a very nice magnetic knife block, which was damaged in transit but has been replaced quickly and painlessly.

Sheer pleasure: For starters, their customer service is excellent; Kamila is very considerate. Aside from the beauty of the razor-sharp Damascus steel blades, the handles are exquisite and elegant. Cutting has never before been this fun. It's probably wise to specify in your living trust who you want to inherit them; there may be some hurt feelings by everyone else, but it may help avoid any animated 'food fights.'

The utensil holder that I ordered is beautiful. Shipping did take some time but was worth the wait! When I finally received the item I was honestly nervous that it looked too small but it was perfect! The craftsmanship is beautiful and well made. The only thing I added were small feet to keep it a little elevated off of the counter from potential oil or spills.

The quality of these handmade knifes is fantastic!! The customer support is super quick, helpful and friendly. I really love the history of the female samurai behind the knifes. It's run by women competing in a Male dominated field. I really love to support them 🙂
