Japanese knives are made using techniques that were initially pioneered in the crafting of katana (samurai swords). After the United States occupied Japan after World War II, General MacArthur forbade the making and possession of katana. This imposed a prohibition that drove a great number of highly skilled craftsmen to devote their skills and attention to making kitchen knives. Even though the ban was reversed after several years, the Japanese state still restricts manufacturing to a few pieces a year. Nevertheless, the legacy and unparalleled sharpness of the katana remains at the heart of the kitchen 1200 years later.
