Welcome to Okouto. The Pleasure of Cooks...
If you like good food and clean, precise samurai-style cutting, you must know a secret:
“ The quality of a dish is equal to the harmony that exists between the cook and his knife .”
Do you know what is the thing that illuminates and makes the eyes of the greatest chefs shine?
And especially chef's knives.
And a little more particularly even today?
Japanese style kitchen knives.
But like any self-respecting cook, you also know it: most of the kitchen knives and Japanese knives that we are offered on the market or in supermarkets are often of poor quality.
Knives that are not efficient, do not last over time, do not stay sharp for long and do not retain a good edge over time. On the other hand, the major brands that are appreciated and recognized in the field of high-end cutlery offer professional knives of impeccable quality, but at prices that are naturally much higher and not necessarily accessible to all ambitious people (especially when like us , we like to have a wide range of knives at hand).
"The flavor of a dish is influenced by the quality of the knife that prepares it ."
Our mission is therefore to offer quality kitchen knives, which cut to perfection, endowed with balance, precision and aesthetics, but above all with a different spirit and at prices that can be accessible to all amateurs . of the kitchen.
Knives that bring a sense of pure satisfaction to every chef who uses them .
To do this, Chief Okouto bent over backwards and finally chose ...
Only the top of the top, only the best .
Not low-end as you find everywhere and not collectible knives whose prices can easily go up to 300/400 euros.
Simply a Japanese or carbon steel kitchen knife, sharpened like a samurai katana and ready to take on any kind of cuisine.
Because 2 cent chef's knives, we don't want them. … And because any cooking lover has the right to cut his meat, his vegetables or his fish fillets with a professional kitchen knife without it costing him an arm … (and yes, to cook well we need of them ...)
As long as there are still stocks of the knife that catches your eye (which is not guaranteed in the long term) do not hesitate to take advantage of it.
And don't worry, you'll never be bored in the kitchen again.

students of the traditional Okouto school of cutting and cutlery, the school of breathtaking cutting edge and meticulous cutting.
