For over one thousand years Japan has been at the leading edge in the crafting of breathtaking blades. Today, using those traditional skills combined with modern technology, Japanese Knife Company is proud to present the finest range of kitchen knives and accessories. After spending over a decade learning the traditional craft of knife making from some of the most skilled blacksmiths in Japan, Indian-born Jay Patel returned to the UK with a desire to share his passion for mankind’s most fundamental tool – the cutting edge. Thus, the Japanese Knife Company was born. Famous for introducing ceramic blades to the UK, the Japanese Knife Company published its first website in 1998 and opened the first Hamonoya in Europe, selling laminated, hand folded and bespoke blades. Going from strength to strength, it now has three branches in Central London, as well as stores in Paris & Stockholm. Here, customers can try the knives and receive specialist guidance from passionate and knowledgeable staff.
