About Us

JapaneseKnifeDirect.Com (JKD) was established in 2001, as the direct online sales division of The Kencrest Corporation. JKD stocks a wide range of Japanese Hunting Knives from top quality Japanese brands and offers them for sale direct from Japan, at special direct prices.

The Kencrest Corporation has been in the knife export business for over 50 years and is based in Seki-City, Gifu Prefecture; a Japanese knife making capital where fine knives are produced using Samurai sword making traditions that date back over 800 years. We source our knives from specially selected knife makers, both here in Seki and from several other knife making districts in Japan. We work closely with our top craftsmen to develop new products on a perpetual basis.

We are here to serve your needs and to satisfy all of your demands for Japanese knives. Our goal is to export fine Japanese knives all around the world, and to provide our customers with highly satisfying, high quality knives that have amazing cutting performance.

Please feel free to contact us by email, we welcome all of your questions and inquiries about our knives and services.

Thank you for your patronage, we look forward to serving you soon.
