For over 115 years, the KAI company has been producing cutlery according to the traditions of the legendary samurai of old Japan. In the process, the desire to preserve ancient traditions and to combine them with innovative techniques represents no contradiction, but forms the basis for new products that honour Japanese blacksmithing while meeting modern demands. With the highest quality standards, the mission of KAI is to produce special kitchen knives for daily use. Made from natural resources, shaped and formed according to the expertise of the ancient blacksmithing art of the samurai, KAI cooking knives epitomise Japanese craftsmanship carried out with the highest degree of precision. From the design to completion of each individual knife, the focus is on the development of an integrated and carefully-considered product. Since starting as a family business in 1908 at Seki, KAI has developed into an international company.
