Welcome to “Japanese Knife Direct” (JKD), supplying you Top Japanese Knife Brands direct from Seki City, the Japanese knife capital.
Our mission is to bring you fine Japanese knives at prices lower than Japanese retail, direct from Japan.
We started direct online sales in 2001, operating under the name “SekiDirect.com”, offering various brands of Japanese knives, however, we had instant success with Japanese Chef's knives. Due to increasing demand and expansion of our product lines, we decided to separate the website into two specific sites: JapaneseKnifeDirect.com (JKD) for Outdoor Sports and Hunting knives and JapaneseChefsKnife.com (JCK) for Japanese Chef's knives.
Every knife fan appreciates the high quality of Japanese knives, which are backed by a long history and the traditions of Samurai swordmaking. Unfortunately, the knife market is currently flooded with cheap Chinese-made knives and it is becoming more difficult to find and purchase fine Japanese knives. We are here to offer you hard-to-find knives from Top Japanese brands and supply them direct from Japan at affordable prices.
Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to serving you soon!
All the best,
