Nakano | Connecting East & West 

The aim of Nakano is to connect the East & West and bring high quality Japanese kitchenware to the West. The company has international presence and sets high standards both in terms of quality as well as design. 

We want to let our customers enjoy the amazing experience of cooking with Japanese cookware and using the sharpest blades in the world. Our knives are forged in the city of Seki Japan which has a long tradition of Japanese knife making. First founded in 1918 through a long history of Japanese Katana (sword) making, our blacksmith brings generations of sword-smith experience into blending and crafting extremely sharp and durable kitchen knives. 

Japan is renowned for the freshness and quality of its seafood. The ice cold water surrounding the most northern island of Japan is ideal for sea vegetation and attracts tourists from all around the world. The joy of sailing through any foods with ease like the waves in the pacific is what inspired the design. The light and beautiful waves on the blades mirror the northern pacific.

We have always valued the input of professional chefs to continuously improve our products and keep up with innovation. The chefs we work with have been known for using one of the toughest and sharpest knives in the world and created a global standard for high quality knives and cookware used in the most renowned restaurants in the world.
