Choose the Right Knife to Gift

Gift giving isn't supposed to be competitive, but it's still fun to win. If you're giving a knife as a gift, you want the recipient to squeal with delight after opening the box. You want them to shout “Holy bananas! This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!"

A Japanese kitchen knife is a gift they will use daily and have fond thoughts of you every time. Here's how to pick the right one:

1. The Look. There are tons of average looking knives in the world, but ignore those. Gift knives need to be sexy. 

2. Easy to care For. Giving someone a knife that could rust is like giving them a puppy to look after. Go with stainless steel.  

3. A knife they'll use. If this is their first Japanese knife, we recommend a multi-purpose knife like a santoku or 210mm gyuto. Otherwise, a supporting knife like a petty or nakiri is a great option. 

It's that easy. If you need more help, check out the rest of the article. The best knives sell out quick, so start your shopping early!
