Simple bevel knives are knives made of a blade only sharpened on one side. These knives allow for a beautiful cut as the blade does not crush the flesh but divise it neatly. However, simple bevel cutting requires a learning process. Each knife offered by Umami is unique and was hand-assembled and sharpened by the master sharpener Shunichi Tahara.


The material used to make the blades is a blend of iron and steel. Therefore, to keep the blades in a good condition and more especially avoid rust, a specific maintenance is required. Blades have to be thoroughly dried after each use and eventually oiled with knife lubricant. They also have to be correctly sharpened with a whetstone (not with a sharpener steel nor a grindstone), available for purchase on our website or at a sharpener skilled to handle japanese knives.
