Love Letters

I received my packages of knives today and I absolutely loved them! My favorite wrapping was the Cherry Blossoms and the knives are very sharp and beautiful. You did an excellent job and am absolutely thrilled :) I'm looking forward to future products


I've got the knife! I love it! It's my first artisan / japanese professional knife. :)


First of all- Thank you for the great knife. It is already my go-to knife, and I love using it every day.


Just received my knives from the courier. I have to say, the furoshiki wrap looks good and it makes the knives feel more elegant.

Also, holding the knives in my hand, it feels nice especially with the Octagonal blackwood and rosewood handle. Perfectly balanced.


Hi there!

Just got the knife today, and it is absolutely fantastic. It meets and exceeds my expectations in every way. Definitely my favourite backed kickstarter so far.

Thank you for the awesome knife!
