Your NAIFU knives are precision made from the highest quality specialist knife steels. With a little care they will continue to perform perfectly for many years.

Never clean knives in dish washing machines. Damage can be caused by high temperatures. Dishwashing chemicals can also cause corrosion of the high carbon metal.

Always hand wash and dry as soon as practical after use. Do not leave to soak for any length of time.


NAIFU knives have been expressly designed and manufactured to have and retain razor sharpness. (In the case of NAIFU D67 the edge may be retained as much as 30% longer than other quality knives).

Depending on the intensity of usage all knives will require some attention from time to time.

Some mechanical grinding and other sharpeners can cause seriously damage and excessive wear.

In the case of NAIFU we strongly recommend using only a wet stone or the specially designed NAIFU SHARPENER.

Drawing the blade lightly through the ceramic cylinders every few days should be all that is necessary.


While filleting blades are intended to be flexible, chef’s, slicing and santoku blades are designed for straight cutting and should never be subject to sideways leverage.

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 have just received the knives I purchased and can honestly say they are the best knives I have ever used. Thank you very much for your service!

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.
