Knives that sharpen cooking skills.

Designed to inspire and to stimulate the senses, the new Hinoki knives go well beyond their purpose as cutting tools to enhance the experience of preparing and cooking a meal. Adelaide-based Hinoki aims to ultimately improve everyday living. To achieve that, the brand employs age-old Japanese craftsmanship to craft its range of finely-refined products. It complements that quality with a secret blade finishing technique and artisanal woodworking as well as modern innovation. The first Hinoki collection provides a refined take on the quintessential Japanese chef’s knife. Designed by company founder Hamish Grace, the knives have a minimal look. At the same time, their elegant silhouette has a function-driven aesthetic, as each line and curve enhances balance, efficiency, or comfort.

Hand-forged in Sakai, Osaka, by a family who has been perfecting the art of blade-making for three generations, the knives feature a similar metal to the one used to make swords. The company uses a secret method to darken the blades and turn them black. This process adds the perfect finishing touch to the ultra-sharp knives that also have excellent edge retention and provide impressive aerodynamic efficiency. Sent from Japan to Adelaide, Australia, each knife reaches the hands of master woodworkers. They use a blend of Japanese and Scandinavian techniques while carving all of the handles by hand. Available in oak or walnut, the handles also come with a black finish that create a stylish monochrome design. Balanced to offer optimal performance, the Hinoki collection brings the finest Japanese chef’s knives into the modern kitchen. Photographs© Hinoki.
