Availability: Normally ships the same day


In 2008, Some of the Seki knife authorities have formed "Seki Challengers Knife Club" to train and inherit Seki traditional knifemaking technique and knowledge to young knife craftsmen in Seki. There are now 15 club members gathering once a month. They are working at Seki knife factories, and challenging to make their own knives after work and weekends.

JKD is trying to support and encourage them by introducing their knives for sale. Here are some of the latest knives received.

Nobuyuki Yamamoto is a talented and experienced knife maker working at Hattori Hamono for over 20 years as a first and chief apprentice to the Grand Master Ichiro Hattori. He has been working very hard to learn Master's skills and techniques, and gained Master's endorsement to be an outstanding knife craftsman. He is allowed to make his own custom knives only after normal work and off days, so it will take a few months to finish one knife. So far, he has made several knives in these two years, and sold out all. At the Challenger meeting in April, he came up with 4 different unique knives.
