The cutter is a completely new development based on proven classic design principles for metal grinder. This cutter combines, in excellent fashion, the advantages of both metal an ceramic grinders and achieves an extreme finenss of grind that leaves nothing to be desired.
The geometry of the two cutter components has been honed to perfection on the basis of long years of experience, especially as regards the finest of powder formation during cut-grinding, without ignoring the foll grind range, from fine to coarse.
Only a metal cutter can achieve this degree of keenness and fineness.

The art of forging swords is a long standing tradition in Japan. Today, CHROMA Haiku Cnives are produced from modern, hight-grade steel by small Japanese knife manufacturers.
A Japanese Haiku Cnife can be recognized by its falcon and Meguki, the small Bamboo peg inserted into the handle of Honoki wood that holds the black cusp in place, exactly like a Samurai Sword.

Which knives are used in the kitchen?

Why You Need a Chef's Knife

The chef's knife will be used the most in your kitchen. You will use it for chopping, slicing, dicing, and cutting. Professional chef's seem to choose a 12 inch blade for their chef's knife but the home cook can usually get away with an 8 inch blade chef's knife for all intensive purposes. You'll need to hold one of each size to determine which would work best for you.

You should always use your chef's knife in combination with a cutting board

Why You Need a Paring Knife

A paring knife is used when you need to do more controlled cutting in the kitchen such as when you will be peeling and cutting delicate fruit, or for cutting and chopping smaller ingredients such as garlic. You'll also use your paring knife for detailed cutting such as when you need to slice vents into your pastry dough, or for removing ribs from fresh peppers.


Due to it's small size and precision cutting you should be able to do things like peel apples while holding the knife and fruit in your hands.


Paring knives vary in length size and usually run anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 inches long. Again, it is recommended that you hold several different sizes in your hand to determine which length is the most comfortable for you.

Why You Need a Serrated Knife

The saw-like teeth of a serrated knife make it easy to slice through things that are hard on the ouside but soft on the inside such as a loaf of crusty French bread.


The serrated knife is designed to be used like a saw, gliding the knife in your hand, back and forth, with each pass cutting deeper into the food item.

Serrated knives come in many different lengths.  I find the 5 inch length to be the most comfortable and useful for me.  As a guide, you should choose one that will be long enough to cut through a loaf of bread.
