KITCHEN KNIVES FROM KIKUICHI IN CARY, NC
Kikuichi kitchen knives, found in Cary, NC at Whisk, come from a long tradition of some of the finest samurai sword craftsmen. To this day, Kikuichi is the only cutlery company in Japan that has evolved from the ancient art of sword making. In fact, one of the Kikuichi ancestors, Shiro, was chosen as a swordsmith to Emperor Gotoba. Because of Shiro’s excellence in his craft, he was granted permission to put a Chrysanthemum flower symbol — the mark of the Japanese emperor — on his sword, and Kikuichi proudly uses this marking on their high-quality kitchen knives to this day.
