Kuroi Hana Japanese Knife Collection

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-06-09

Get inspired in the kitchen when you use the Kuroi Hana Japanese Knife Collection by Edge of Belgravia. This series takes on a twist of London design with premium Japanese materials. The Kuroi Hana Collection uses high-quality AUS-10 steel. This Japanese material has a hardness range of 58-60 HRC. It’s super tough, wonderfully sharp, and even has corrosion resistance. It’s no wonder why the creators chose this material. The Kuroi Hana Collection features blades with a whopping 67 layers of this steel. In addition, each layer is complete with a stunning dark floral pattern. The collection includes six different knives to suit every task in the kitchen. These include a slicing knife, a bread knife, and four different lengths of chef’s knives. The blades range in size from 4 inches up to 7.5 inches. Easy to sharpen, the Kuroi Hana Knives are complete with an ergonomic grip.

Just have to ask. My blades came dull. The only one that came sharp enough to cut anything is the long square tipped knife....... anyone else?

Review from Kickstarter
@The Doctor. Thank you so much for backing our project. It has been over seven months since we delivered your knives and we recommend sharpening your knives when necessary by using a whetstone. Please note that all steel knives will eventually need sharpening and that the AUS-10 cutting core will enable you to retain a super sharp edge. If you need any additional help sharpening your knives, please do not hesitate to email us at kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk. We have some great tutorial videos we would love to share! :)

Review from Kickstarter
@Kevin Moore. We are terribly sorry to hear. Please send images to kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk so that I can assist you further. Please know that the high quality AUS-10 steel has a high carbon content enabling it to hold a sharper edge than stainless steel. The issue with this is that "proper care" of carbon steel involves a bit more day to day maintenance. If you do begin to see rust forming, please scrub this off with a sponge and apply a mineral grade oil to prevent this from happening in the future. If the problem continues please do not hesitate to drop us a message or call so that we are able to assist you further!

Has anyone else had issues with their knives discolouring? I have had my knives for a while, but didn't use or unpack them as I was moving house, and was waiting to use them in my new house... We used them for the first time a couple of days ago, and then washed them and dried them and put them back in the knife block... Today when I went to use them, two of the knives have, what can only be described as, rust along the blade edge... They look unsightly, and disappointing for knives of this calibre...:(

Review from Kickstarter
I found the magnetic rack to be weaker than expected and didn't hold the knives well, until I turned the knives so that the pointed down. The handles keep the knives from falling off and it works well.

@Johan. I am terribly sorry about this. I have seen your email on the 9th February and I can see that a response was sent the same day. We have not received any additional emails since. Please know that of course we will send a replacement and I have dropped you an email again requesting further information so that we are able to process this for you. I hope this is ok. :)

Does anyone have any luck with receiving replacement products? My magnetic knife rack is too weak and I have emailed kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk multiple times, but they refuse to even reply to me. This is getting very annoying and feels unprofessional to be honest!

I don't know if it's possible, but I need a replacement Chef Knife 7.5". My wife was using it and the blade chipped in the center. Any idea how to get a replacement? Thanks,

Thanks @Nicholas...standing up though the longest blade is too long even for the deepest slot

Review from Kickstarter
Hey Shaun. I alternated every other slot. So I did the Longest chef knife, Skip a slot, Medium Chef Knife, Skip a slot, The Straight (razer) looking Knife, Skip a slot Short Chef Knife, Skip a Slot, Then Pairing. That seems to be the best way I've found.

Review from Kickstarter
Can someone please explain how these knives are supposed to fit in the block? My wife is about ready to throw the block in the trash as it seems this block will not fit all the knives

@Aleksandar. Thank you for your kind words about its looks and sharpness and we are terribly sorry about the rust. Please know that the high quality AUS-10 steel has a high carbon content enabling it to hold a sharper edge than stainless steel. The issue with this is that "proper care" of carbon steel involves a bit more day to day maintenance. This is easily corrected by simply applying a mineral grade oil to the blade. Please know that I have emailed you to provide further assistance. :)

Review from Kickstarter
Well I am highly not satisfied with these knives as I have rust on my set after few months. For such expensive knives that should not be an issue. Explanation from the company is that that particular type of blades needs to be cleaned on daily bases not to have water on them... They do look great and sharp but rust is just too much to have it in few months no matter how you used the knives...

Review from Kickstarter
I absolutely love these knives. I was amazed at how well they sliced through raw salmon like butter just like the video. Awesome product!

Review from Kickstarter
@Chris Saunders. We are terribly sorry about this and of course we will sed a replacement. Please email kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk with your address so that we can process this as soon as possible.
We would also like to thank you for your complements and feedback about the packaging being difficult to open. Although they look great, we also agree that they need a better grip as sometimes a vacuum is formed making it difficult to open. I have forwarded this onto the design team and I hope they will have a solution for this in the near future. I hope this is ok.
Kind regards, Edge of Belgravia Team

Review from Kickstarter
I finally found time and (mental) energy to mount the magnetic bar on the wall - horizontally in my case. Now I don't know how these knives are suupposed to affix themselves to the bar, but mine slid off constantly, resulting in two gashes in my hands. I assume the blades are supposed to cling to the magnet, but either the magent has lost some its oomph, or the knives are simply two heavy for it. I ordered the magnet specially for the cleaver knife and the large chef's knife, since there's no way they're going to fit into the knife block. Perhaps the magnet wasn't meant to be used for anything heavier than the pairing knife. Again, assuming that buyers will understand intuitively which pieces of kit fit together is not a good strategy. By the way, since I'm already complaining, I should mention the boxes the knives came packaged. They look sumptuous, and I've kept mine in case I ever want to give the knives away to the next generation. There's one big drawback however. The lids sit so tightly around the box, that it's virtually impossible to get the lids off, without jabbing one's nails into the box and shaking vigorously. If you hold the lid and shake up and down, the lid only clings tighter to the box because of the added pressure. Pity somebody didn't think of cutting a few rounded spaces from the lips of the lid where people could get a firm grip on the box and nudge the lid off, without leaving great big nail marks on the box, which, of course, detracts from their esthetic value.. Looking forward to hearing your response. best,
Chris Saunders

Review from Kickstarter
@James Stoner. Please also apply a mineral grade oil to the blade to prevent this from happening in the future. We recommend using a camellia knife oil, however any mineral grade oil from amazon will do the trick too. We hope to have the knife oil available on our website soon,, and I will drop you a message once we receive inventory. If you also need further assistance, please do not hesitate to email me at kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk. :)

@The Doctor. Simply apply a mineral grade oil to the blade to correct for this and prevent this from happening in the future. This is also a great way to maintain your knives, and can be applied to all your knives in your kitchen.

Knives turning cloudy?

Review from Kickstarter
@EdgeOfBelgravia Loving the Kuroi Hana's. Functionally they have been awesome. I use them just about every day. However, I have noticed that the etched flower pattern is disappearing. It seems that even a crusty baguette or a wet sponge is removing and diminishing the etching. I am wondering if this is normal? It doesn't seem like it should be. /James

if anyone wants to buy my Black Diamond Knife Block, I'm happy to ship it to you. I didn't end up using the one I got with my knives because the existing knife block fit all the awesome Kuroi Hana knives. :)

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Steven. Please send us images to kickstarter@edgeofbelgravia.co.uk so that we can assist you further. Because of the higher hardness of AUS-10 steel, the knives are more brittle. The benefit is that the blade is able to hold a march sharper edge. If you drop us an email we will be able to help you further. :)
