Designed by Chef's Armoury, Kuro Kuma knives are hammer forged in Japan, razor sharp yet robust enough as a daily drive. Handles are crafted in Australia using native Australian hardwoods.
Robust yet razor sharp.
Kuro Kuma translates as black bear but has nothing to do with portly nigerians dancing mano-a-mano and cheek to cheek in a biker bar. This kind of black bear is where sexy meet sharp in the form of hammer forged blades from the hands of Japanese masters.
Add to this the woodworking skills of local Australian handle makers and the result is a range of knives that are razor sharp yet robust enough as a daily drive. Excited? We certainly are, shame about the biker bar – it sounded kinda fun.
Designed by Chef's Armoury
Kura Kuma was born of a desire to create knives that are utilitarian yet have an emotional appeal. Choice of materials, kajiya and togishi are drawn from the wealth of knowledge and contacts forged over the last decade in Japan.
Handles are locally made in Australia to fulfil our goal of offering our world class timbers to match the outstanding quality of the blades on offer.
