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.

During the last 3 years, Mr. Arakawa has spent a great deal of time and energy developing his own special handcrafted custom resin handles.  I could not resist the attraction of his collection of custom knives, which are mysterious, beautiful and wonderfully made. His handmade Custom Resin Handle can be viewed from a variety of angles, with each view providing a uniquely beautiful and exciting scene. He pays special attention when selecting the parts and crafting the handle, always seeking to make his own distinct creation and recreate the joyous feeling that his original dream knife gave him.

This distinctive collection of dream knives are 100% Custom Handmade and are 100% the product of his Mr. Arakawa’s own creative ideas and spirit.

In the future, we are excited to see more of his beautiful creations and masterpieces as he produces them for our business, and our customers.
