  Custom Made Knives from Takayuki Watanabe
7/20/15 Up! Added New WT-90 Sowbelly
 

Takayuki Watanabe
is 62 years old Custom Knifemaker in Mino, the neighbour city of Seki. He has been involved with knife making at age of 20, helping his father's business of the knife buffing and polishing. He has started making his own custom knives at 32 with a passion and yearning to Bob Loveless. In 1994, he had a chance to visit the Loveless's workshop in Riverside, California to show some of his knives. Bob was surprised with his work of high level craftsmanship, and asked him to stay and work together at his
shop.

At that time, there was no name marking on his blades, so Bob has wondered why you don't put your name on such well made knives, and has kindly designed his logo on memo pad with his signature and words of "Vigilant", "Diligent" & "Capable". Upon returning to Japan, he has started engraving this logo. It was an unforgettable moment in his life to be able to meet with Bob Loveless so called "A God of Knife" at his young age.

The Ultimate "Soe-Nata" (副鉈) Knives from Echigo Master Blacksmith, Tukasa Hinoura  
 

Last year, we have introduced some amazing Chef knives from Master Tsukasa Hinoura at our JCK website, so you would have known how the masterpieces are produced. When we met him again at this year's Seki Knife show in October, he has invited us to visit his workshop in Sanjyo city, Niigata pref. In early November, Koki and I had a pleasure of visiting his workshop (it was about 5 hours drive from Seki). We are very honored and excited to see his technical demonstration of the special forging process (Warikomi Tansetsu) and the step by step workshop tour. Since tremendous times are devoted to each detail of every manufacturing step, it is of course not possible to see all his works in a day, but it did not take time to understand why his knives are super outstanding and different from others. His rich knowledge of each steel characteristic, and his insatiable pursuit mind and commitment make a perfect knife in the distinctive world of Japanese Forged Knives (和鍛冶).

Each blade edge is hand honed with Japanese whetstones from course to super fine grits, creating sparkling rainbow colors (Honed Beauty). The distinct Damascus patterns are from his forging technique to give you a visual art as well as the highest level of craftsmanship

For more information about Master Hinoura and his craftsmanship, please visit the JCK page

 Old BlackJack Knives in Mint Condition for Collectors 

  
 

 No   Gimmicks... Just Performancebj.jpg

 

 During the years of 1987 to 1990, Blackjack knives have been designed by Mike Stewart and produced in Seki, Japan. I was deeply involved with all Japanese production before they went to bankruptcy. I have recently found some old Blackjack knives at the factories, and would like to offer them for Blackjack collectors.  Since original Japanese production was very small quantity per model, it is hard to find in the market and is now becoming a rare collector model.  You can get Blackjack information at some forums, www.KnifeForums.com , www.BlackjackKnives.us etc.

Mr. Seizo Imai was involved with this production at his factory in Seki, stating with Kraton handle to Micarta, Cocobolo and Stag handle versions, and they were the best sellers in Blackjack line. Over 40 years now, Mr. Imai is now an individual custom knifemaker and is making various famous models replicas such as Loveless, Horn, Centofante in fine details and precision work. You can see his craftsmanship at Imai page.  I have recently asked him to make some custom made replicas of Blackjack Folding Mambas, and he has hand made 3 pcs. each of four different handles in exactly same size and shape, but with upgraded ATS-34 blade instead of AUS-8 originally used. This will be a good addition to your Blackjack collection!
