Creating Your Original Brand
At Takahashikusu, we produce Japanese and Western knives under the trademarks of our customers.
The main features of Japanese knives are that they are single-edged and use steel. Because of these features, they have a very sharp edge. With this, they can create a beautiful cut surface and the cells of food do not get damaged thereby maximizing the flavor of food.
Most Western knives are double-edged, making it easy to cut as you like when you look at things from above. Since they are mostly made of stainless-steel and are rust resistant, they are especially widely used in homes, but more professionals are starting to prefer them.
Set of Peelers
We have created tool sets that include tools such as kenmuki (peeling knives), nomi (chisels), kurinuki (ballers) and tazuna (a cutter that creates rope-like shapes) necessary for preparing mainly vegetables. We offer a variety of sets from 9 pieces to 28 pieces.
