Knife Care

Lifetime Warranty:

We are so confident in our quality of knives we offer a free lifetime guarantee on our blades.

Always hand wash and dry each knife after use. With a soft sponge or cloth. Never machine wash.

Our blades leave the workshop with an edge angle of 15°. To maintain this edge for a lifetime we recommend using a good quality sharpening steel regularly.


The truth is a knife is only as good as its core. Forged with a Japanese AUS10 Core and 66 Layers of Damascus Steel the Awabi Knives ensure Longevity, Strength and Stain Resistance.


Your knives should feel steady in the hand, and give you Stability and Comfort needed to cut through anything. The Awabi handles focus on delivering this to you every time using a Triple Riveted Full Tang Design.


Your knives performance should never be questioned - That is why all Awabi Knives are Hand Sharpened to a screaming sharp 15 Degree Angle using the Traditional Japanese Honbazuke Technique.


  • 8" Kiritsuke

    The cherished Kiritsuke is arguably the best-known Japanese kitchen knife.

    That’s because it is the ultimate chef’s knife: as good at slicing raw vegetables as filleting fresh fish. And our Awabi Kiritsuke is made all the more distinctive by its decorative abalone handle.

  • 8" Gyuto

    If the diamond-shaped Kiritsuke doesn’t quite cut it, the 8” Gyuto is another worthy all-purpose chef’s knife.

    The blade reflects the western style, offering a familiar rocker-feel that’s boosted by the characteristic sharpness and durability of 67 layers of Japanese Damascus steel.

  • 8" Nakiri

    In the simplest of terms, ‘Na’ means leaf and ‘kiri’ means cut, showing the Japanese designed this knife with one task in mind.

    The delicate rectangular blade of the Nakiri makes swift work of soft ingredient prep, favoring a simple push-to-cut technique that’s as effective on salad as on a thick-skinned squash.


  • 7" Boning Knife

    This 7” knife is the meat lover’s dream, offering a nimble blade that makes deboning, trimming, butterflying, and filleting as easy as it is satisfying.

  • 5.4" Utility Knife

    Some jobs need something a little smaller. That’s where the general-purpose utility knife steps in. And it’s so versatile you’ll probably end up using it every single day.

I’d love to review

My knives have not arrived and they are a present for my partner for Christmas in 4 days time

Saskia A.

I found myself buying knife block sets regularly because nothing under $200 lasts these days, until I purchased these. They are sharp and lightweight. Great quality and long lasting if taken care of property (hand wash and dry, don’t put in dishwasher). I am very pleased with these

Suleman L.

These knives aren’t just a great value at the onset, but they are long lasting. I’ve had them for a couple months now and they’re still in great condition!
