About its blade

If you notice some special "speckles" on the top layer of your ZK02 blade, please rest assured, these are not residual stains. The KATSU ZK02 blade is crafted from 17-layer ZDP-189 super steel and meticulously hand-finished by seasoned craftsmen. These "speckles" are a characteristic feature resulting from the hand-finishing process of this material.

If you are unfamiliar with this material and craftsmanship, please visit this post "The Artistry Behind KATSU ZK02 Blades" or reach out to us via email for further information.

Each KATSU KNIVES undergoes rigorous inspection before shipping, so the KATSU ZK02 you receive is unquestionably of superior quality. We have immense confidence in this.

Our knives are built to last. Cleaning and caring for your knife will maintain performance and enhance the life of your knife.

Tips for Caring Folding Knives
  • Keep your knife dry; that means the entire knife, not just the blade.
  • Keep your knife clean, particularly moving parts and locking devices.
  • Keep your knife oiled; especially pivot points and the blade. Oil at least twice a year.
  • Keep your knife sharp; a sharp blade is safer than a dull one.
  • Again, store your knife in a dry place.
Tips for Caring Kitchen Knives
  • Always use an appropriate cutting board in the kitchen to get the most out of the sharpness of your knives.
  • Cleaning knives after each use will keep them in the best condition and promote food safety.
  • Knives require a safe dry storage place, and a knife block is perfect for storing knives.

Very special knife!

I am really in awe of how amazing this titanium feels in hand. You must have tumbled it for days. The blade is also very impressive, as is the action. Happy customer!

Fantastic Knife!

I purchased this knife as the KATSU ZK01 was out of stock. It was a little bit more $$$, but it is a great knife! I was very pleased with the order, the knife arrived in perfect condition, no issues! I liked it so much, I see the KATSU ZK01 is back in stock, I just hit the PayPal button, my KATSU ZK01 is on the way… This is a great knife company, I was hesitant at first to order online without seeing the knife in person, but I decided to go ahead and do it… I was glad I did. The service was great, knife is fantastic. I look at their site and receive their emails… I am sure I am going to purchase more products in the future. Great product, and service so far.
