Katana Saya is the universal knife brand of our times, encompassing the very best of our different cultures and traditions. The Katana was the prized sword of the Samurai with its extra sharp blade fashioned from folded Damascus Steel. The blades of our knives are similarly crafted from Japanese VG-10 Damascus Steel. The Katana was always protected inside a Sheath or Saya. We present the traditional Japnese style knives with traditional Wooden Saya, to match the knife handles.
The very ethos of Katana Elements is born out of the natural world therefore we strive to be both progressive and sensitive in our attitude towards our impact on the planet. Having been overwhelmed by the instant popularity from chef’s far and wide of our Katana Saya range launched in 2021, we are following up with our next mission which is to extend the appeal of these knives to all of you who enjoy cooking at home and crave the best tools for the job. For this purpose, we have retained the same high performance 67 Layer, VG-10 Damascus Steel blades, but developed a range of multi-coloured handles. These consist of a blemnd of olive wood infused with vibrant translucent resins. Our inspiration for this stems from ancient wisdom of the elements that coalesce to make up our earth. The are typically considered to be Fire, Water, Earth and Air.
Having already depicted the atmosphere and air through the representation o f Night-time and Daylight in our original range, we now present a new trio of KATANA ELEMENTS;
Water - Oceanic Blue
The might and magnificence of the ocean is the source of inspiration behind the Katana Elements Ocean collection. The flowing blue resin evokes the might of lapping waves depicted in traditional woodcuts. In Japanese culture, blue is considered lucky but also symbolic of calm and purity. Contrasting harmoniously to the mighty ocean.
Fire - Volcanic Red
Fire is truly one of the most formidable of elements. The magnitude of the earth's fiery underbelly is where the Katana Elements Volcanic range finds its inspiration. Furthermore, Red is Japanese culture is symbolic of both Peace and Prosperity, casting a delicate balance between these two contrasting forces.
Earth – Rainforest Green
The Rainforest is both mysterious yet full of life, a vast expanse of wonder. That is where the Katana Elements Rainforest range evokes its discreet and ambient aesthetic. The olive wood fused with the deep green resin brings a homely feel that beholds a mysterious beauty. Green symbolizes both life and growth. A perfect attribute for your kitchen Knives.
