Kai Benifuji is part of the Seki Magoroku range of knives. Many celebrated swords were born in Seki area and in the Kamakura era. The master craftsman “Magoroku of Seki” had the original technique producing beautiful swords which were high quality and had outstanding sharpness.
Made in Japan, these knives have a full tang which makes them robust and eases hand fatigue. Constructed from AUS-8A stainless steel, each blade is subjected to a 3 chamfering processes. This special grinding process reduces the friction against food and blade and gives you a knife with an extremely sharp cutting edge.
Like others in the Kai family, the handle is made from hard wearing PakkaWood® which enables durability and comfort, as well as making it an attractive looking knife to have in your collection.

The Benifuji Utility Knife is an extremely handy all purpose knife suited to general food preparation of smaller food items.
The utility knife is between a chefs knife and a paring knife, with a narrower and straighter blade. It’s perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Its slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts.
