Tomoyoshi Arakawa TA-04 Fighter "NY Special"

Availability: Normally ships the same day


At the Seki Knife Festival’s Outdoor Knife Show, my heart was completely stolen by a collection of very distinctive and beautifully handcrafted custom knives. I became very interested in these custom knives and the craftsman who made them, so I asked him about his knife making story and his knife making philosophy.

The gentleman’s name is Tomoyoshi Arakawa and, while he is already a veteran custom knife maker, he continues to challenge himself to seek out and create his own inspiration, ideas, designs and techniques so that he can create truly distinctive custom knives.

At a young age, he fell in love with the beautiful “GERBER Silver Knight” knife, became interested in custom knife making and then began his knife making career. We believe his pure passion and love of knives greatly helped him to increase his custom knife making skills and techniques during his decades of custom knife making work, which involved considerable effort, many trials and many errors.
