About Naifu Japanese Chef Knives


Until recently, for over 40 years we owned and ran the Divertimenti shops in London. During this time we supplied leading professional and keen cooks with the highest quality professional knife sets and utensils including brands such as Henkels, Global, and Sabatier.

A lifetime’s passion for cooking and the tools of cookery is hard to relinquish so it is no surprise that we have now set out to create a new range of knives that are designed to fulfill our most exacting requirements.

NAIFU japanese knives are skillfully crafted using the best Japanese and German steels. By importing them from source our on-line CHEF’S KNIFE STORE is able to offer them direct at a substantial saving in cost for knives of this remarkable quality.

We recommend them to all professional and keen cooks who take pleasure in working with efficient and beautifully made tools.

Our aim is always to achieve the good value for money coupled with uncompromising quality and personal service. We can unreservedly promise to offer this with the NAIFU product range of professional japanese knives and knife sets.

introducing new...!

Here at Naifu we have designed an elegant new steak and game knife made from fine chef quality knife steel. The handle is particularly comfortable and has excellent weight and balance.

I received one of your knives for a birthday present, what a delight. Extremely sharp and an absolute pleasure to use. Am now going to save for the larger knife.

I recently bought a Tokyo set of knives from you. Just wanted to say what a fantastic set of knives they are and they fully live up to your description of them. Great value as well and I've only cut myself once!!

Never got chance to get back to you. Always a bit of a gamble buying online unseen but the knives I bought from you in 2014 are fabulous quality and quite the best knives money can buy. THANK YOU

I wish we'd bought these years ago. I've always liked the idea of good knives but been unimpressed by the price or the value. I came across reviews of these and bought on the strength of that. They are excellent and very good value for what they deliver.

Great value for money and they feel great to use, good balance and ergonomics. The santoku knife in my set developed a small crack and was replaced without any fuss very quickly. If you are thinking that this might indicate dodgy quality, don't.

Easy to use and very sharp. Threw my old knives away and wondered how I had managed with them for so long! I haven't used all the knives yet, but the ones I have used are supurb and very sharp, it has enticed me to try all sorts of new recipes, so my wife thinks they are also a good idea!

Sharper than any kitchenware I have ever used. The layered steel is very visible and looks extremely cool.
