Frequently Asked Questions

How sharp are Choppn' Knives?

All Choppn' Knives are hand sharpened using the traditional japanese technique known as the Honbazuke Method. This tradtional Japanese method gives every blade its incomparable sharpness. 


Every blade is sharpened and polished by hand in three stages in a complex process. The blade is first coarsely ground using a vertically rotating sharpening stone, followed by a fine honing using a horizontally rotating sharpening stone. The edge is then polished using a leather stropping block for scalpel-like sharpness.

How are the handles made so unique?

The signature Hayami handle is made of multicolored stabilised wood. 


The process of stabilizing wood involves drying the wood to get rid of any moisture that it holds. The wood and a stabilizing agent are then placed in a chamber under a vacuum which removes any air from the pores of the wood and fills any voids. 


The stabilizing chemical used is a food safe epoxy resin and this is where the variety of colours come from as different dyes can be added. The process gives each piece of wood a different finish and this, combined with the woods graining, means that no two Choppn' Handles will ever be exactly the same.
