Edit Japan’s knife sheath features a unique indigo dyed wood which matches the handle on their knives. They are developed with traditional craftsmanship by Yamawaki Cutlery based in Sakai, Osaka— the largest local knife craft city with a 600 year long history. 2 major challenges with Japanese knives are their lack of unique design and ability to maintain cleanliness. Edit Japan chose to dye their handles and sheaths with Indigo not necessarily for looks, but because Indigo is antibacterial and used to deodorize. The beautiful appearance is simply a lovely byproduct!
By incorporating traditional techniques with modern technology, Edit Japan's knives ensure the sharpness of a Japanese samurai sword into the kitchen, allowing for exceptional precision and functionality that will fit any lifestyle.
