“Zero Edge” Technology
“Kasane” is a new brand of knives created by Sumikama Co Ltd, a well-established Japanese knife maker. These knives feature a proprietary technology developed by the company, which allows knives to maintain their sharpness longer. The blades are processed and sharpened in a special way that helps prevent them from going blunt. According to the company’s research, the “Zero Edge” technology has successfully reduced the decline of sharpness, keeping it at around 80% as compared to other products in their internal testing.
Story of “Kasane”
“Kasane” means layering. It refers to many aspects of Japanese culture and lifestyle, such as the ancient art of layering colors in Japanese kimono, or many layers of colour in the changing seasons, or the beauty of various layers of one’s life experiences. There are also many layers of effort put into creating this innovative bread knife. When a company is brave enough to address their own gender disparity, deciding to reflect more female voices, and when an all male in-house designer give way to a female designer outside the company to create the best, the result is just so perfect. The company has previously been awarded two prestigious design awards from the leading international consumer goods trade fair “Ambiente Messe“.
