Hinoki’s Renewal Service extends a guarantee of lifetime service and maintenance for a humble fee.
Hinoki believes that the periodic renewal of both it’s essential range, and oneself, is vital for optimum performance and spirit.
It must be said that we enjoy patina, and the history imbued into our possessions. With this in mind we recommend you renew a piece from our essential range only when necessary.
Additionally, should one find themselves facing existential crisis — renewing a piece from the essential range is an expeditious and economical way to effect the feeling of change in one's own life.
Hinoki is honoured to have knife sharpening carried out, in-house, by Master Akira-san. Widely renowned for his work restoring and preserving Japanese blades for nearly 40 years, Akira-san renews each blade with a selection of the finest Japanese whetstones.
Removing only the minimum amount of metal to ensure longevity, the renewal process removes rust, tarnish and chips; returning to you a blade with a supremely sharp edge and new lease of life.
As with all aspects of Hinoki’s craftsmanship, our knife handles are built to last a lifetime, however, should you need change, or seek to restore the knife to its original state, to gift a grandchild years from now, re-handling your blade can be completed swiftly to your exact specifications.
Akira-san remains at your service.
