“Zero Edge” Technology
“Kasane” is the new brand created by the well established award winning knife maker Sumikama Co Ltd. These knives are equipped with Sumikama’s newly developed trade secret “Zero Edge” technology. These blades are processed and sharpened in a special way to help prevent them from going blunt with daily wear. Their research shows the “Zero Edge” technology has successfully reduced the decline of sharpness and it keeps its sharpness at around 80% (internal product comparison).

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“.
How to Care
To maintain the sharpness of your knife, we recommend that it is hand-washed.
Do not leave unwashed for long after cutting citrus such as lemon or orange.
Super light-weight (nearly half the weight of average knives) means you can comfortably use it for longer periods of time.
