Single bevel knives are favored in specific types of cooking, such as Japanese, as they offer a key advantage – they are extremely sharp. This is due to the fact they only need to be honed on one side so it is easier to create a much smaller, thus sharper, angle. This allows precision slicing, dicing and cutting which is essential in Japanese cuisine, particularly when crafting sushi.
