Brass Butter Knife
- Beautiful brass butter knife
- Pairs well with the Azmaya Butter Box
- Collaboration between modern design and craftsmen
This knife is made of stainless steel with a brass handle. The blade is thin, which ensures the cut of the butter will always be smooth.
The blade is made with high quality stainless steel which is heated for maximum hardness and sharpened repeatedly to achieve its perfect razor-like finish. The knife is then assembled by encasing the stainless steel blade into the brass handle. Stainless rivets keep the pieces fixed in place.
The brass handle will change colour into a darker caramel brown with use and oxidation giving it a richer and precious vintage look. In Japan we find this ageing process beautiful. A beautiful addition to your table.
Azmaya also has a lovely Butter box that compliments the knife.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
