Made by KAI who is the manufacturer under which SHUN knives are also produced. Founded in 1908 in Seki (Japan), the Magoroku collection is the affordable entry into the world of Japanese knives.

The Wakatake series features polypropylene handles on high-carbon stainless steel making them ideal contestants for a fast paced environment. Very thin behind the edge, they are not only light in the hand but also glide throught indredients easily thanks to such a slim geometry.

If you are on a budget and don't want to compromise performance, this series can get the job done.
