The handmade work over the kiln leaves distinctive traces in the Forged knives, making each a unique piece and clearly revealing that the knives of this brand are the result of a truly honest blacksmith's craft. The relatively young Dutch brand, founded in 2014, teamed up with a small artisan workshop in Japan and caused an absolute stir among chefs with its products.
Forget the classic prefabricated kitchen knives. The Forged knife is a tool worthy of the greatest masters of the kitchen, to whose hands it brings perfect balance, the ability to cut perfectly and uncompromising quality. Made using traditional Japanese techniques, this knife can become a family heirloom passed onto future generations.
Inspired by the shape of Japanese waves, the Katai line of knives has an unprecedented grace that carries from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. The knives in this range are made from five-ply Japanese steel and their shape allows for a whole new way of slicing.
The flagship of the Katai range is the chef's knife, for which Forged has even received the Red Dot Award, an award that is considered by many to be the design Oscar. A knife for true masters of the kitchen, it offers versatile features that make it perfectly capable of handling meat, fish and vegetables.
The hand-forged blade made of Japanese steel perfectly follows the movements of your hand thanks to the knife's balance, so you can experience food preparation with unlimited passion. Just grip the unique rootwood handle with its beautiful pattern making each piece a complete original.
Blade length: 205 mm
Blade thickness: 2 mm
Weight: 190 g
The knife comes in an authentic wooden gift box. The Katai Forged range won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2020.
The steel of the Forged knives is not stainless steel and therefore the knives are not dishwasher safe. After using the knife, clean and dry the tool thoroughly to avoid rust stains. If you know you will not be using the knife for a long time, treat the blade with oil and wrap it in cloth or paper.

The white pepper you buy in shops here is just peeled unripe black pepper which tend to get musty and thus nobody likes it. The genuine white pepper is peeled from ripe red one (it is its seed) and so it gets its specific qualities for which it´s sought by top chefs all over the world – the white pepper opens up taste buds and multiplies the taste of each ingredient.Show use
Genuine red Kampot pepper is unique in the world. It is extremely rare and grows only in a few places in the world. It is harvested fully ripe at the peak of the pepper season and thanks to its long ripening it is full of fructose, which gives it a unique sweet-fruity taste. The so-called “red pepper" (which is actually pink) we can find in the Czech Republic is not pepper at all and is so incorrectly labeled. It is a Brazilian peppercorn that grows in a tree and is popular for its colour.Show use

Certificates of authenticity of Kampot pepper
Authentic Kampot Pepper must always be accompanied by four compulsory certificates that determine its quality, uniqueness, and origin. In addition, a ‘Lot Number’ must always be stated on the packaging. This number allows the pepper to be tracked right back to the specific farmer that produced it.
Proves the origin and quality of Kampot pepper. There are many cheap copies all over the world, named for example pepper from Kampot, pepper Kampot or pepper from Cambodia, which, however, have nothing to do with the real Kampot pepper. So, if your pepper doesn't have all four certificates and a lot number, it's not the genuine Kampot pepper.
