Wakui

Wakui-san began his journey into knifemaking working long hours as an apprentice at Yoshikane Cutlery in Sanjo, Japan. Wakui-san forges, heat treats and grinds all his knives in his small Sanjo workshop. We first carried his knives in 2015 and were immediately impressed. His hard work shows in the quality of his smithing and excellent grinding work. We are really proud to offer his knives!  

Wakui knives are characterized by a solid middle-weight yet robust Sanjo feel: very thin behind the edges, thicker at the spine, and amazingly easy to sharpen with clean grinds easy for follow up thinning.
