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 thier knives for sale. Here are some of the latest knives received.

Mr. Ritsu Maruyama is a young talented and aggressive knife maker working at Hattori Hamono as an apprentice to the  Grand Master Ichiro Hattori. He likes to make tactical knives and pays attention to the detail for a perfect fit and finish. Since his time is limited to after work and weekend, he can make only one or two knives in a year. Last year, we have introduced his first knife of the Sub-Hilt Fighter", and was quickly sold out. As a practice knife maker, he devotes tremendous times to make one knife, a perfect finish knife ignoring profitability. 

On end of 2022, Ritsu has opened his own workshop and became individual custom knifemaker. Congratulations! His dream come true at young age. He just came up two new models he has produced in these six months.
