Daiso Standard Products Japanese kitchen knives
A proper Japanese kitchen knife is always a popular item to buy in Japan, but it doesn’t come cheap. Daiso’s new lifestyle store Standard Products offers high-quality basics at affordable prices, including three stainless steel knives that are made in Gifu prefecture. There’s a bread knife, a kitchen knife and a petty knife. These affordable slicers are produced in Seki, a city known for its knives and blades industry, while the handles are fashioned out of Japanese wood. Unfortunately, Standard Products has no online shop, so you’ll have to pick this up at the store.
From ¥1,100, at Daiso Standard Products (in-store only).
