We are a small team of people who have long been fond of knives
It all began more than fifteen years ago, with the acquisition of folding knives made by the USA.
When a cool & reliable cutting tool is in your pocket, it’s a revolution of consciousness.
Years passed, collections replenished, broadened horizons and experience for service.
Often, by visiting friends, was happened to helping in the kitchen, with a personal folding knife, which was the only sharp one.
The home knife set of many owners almost always be despondency, and strangely enough, our own knives were no better.
The severe contrast, against the background of dozens of branded knives not intended for the kitchen, which is gathering dust on a shelf, made us think about changing interests, and buying the first Japanese knives.
Further amazement, delight, and the main question — why this has not been done before?
The experience of owning expensive blades was extensive by then.
Judiciousness & a sense of limits of “what is possible, and what is what can not be done” were also present.
The formation of culture, most often occurs through the bump on the forehead, because alas few listen to advice, in practice.
We had this period, in the first years of hobby, and the bulk of the trials fell on the share of the folding knives.
So the new Chef-knives and Santoku, from Tojiro and Kanetsugu, immediately fell into a favorable environment.
These great knives, for many years, are our trusted helpers.
Then the idea arose to help everyone to fix the ingrained delusion — even if it doesn’t cut, but it’s cheap and not a pity.
A kitchen knives, in contradistinction to a pocket folder, is used in every family every day, and how it's good it affects the ability and desire to cook.
The search began for partnerships with trusted companies from the Land of the Rising Sun, whose products have been tested.
A huge personal joy was the opportunity to create direct contacts and establish cooperation.

About our service
All are able to master the skill of the sharpening, but not everyone is interested.
Not only skills will be required, but also an arsenal of whetstones, different grain sizes.
A good set will certainly last decades, but this is a serious investment at the initial stage.
Understanding that only cutting tools that are not used, does not blunt, we organized a sharpening service.
We will be happy to help return the razor sharpness to every knife bought from us.
Sharpening is performed on Naniwa Professional Chosera water stones, or on a professional sharpening system, with constant angle retention.
By default, when restoring the original angle of the cutting edge is preserved, but at the request of the customer, we can change it.
If you still have questions — that's fine! We like to talk about blades, and how to re-sharpen your knife.
