Kasane knives have gained a following among professionals in the food industry despite being a relatively new brand. The fact that “Kasane” appeals to a wide range of users is no coinscident. It is sharp and light-weight. Ergonomic design of the knives makes them more comfortable to use and reduces the strain on the user’s hands and wrists, which is important for home cooks and professional chefs who use their knives for extended periods of time.
“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 colours 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 with all male in-house designers give way to a female designer outside the company, the result is just so perfect. The company has previously awarded two prestigious design awards from the leading international consumer goods trade fair “Ambiente Messe“.
