We specialise in finding a great selection of hand crafted Japanese kitchen knives but unfortunately one of the problems we run into is that as their popularity soars with our customers, the limited nature of the product and the time they take to make does lead to some slow lead times for new stock and a lot of enquiries.
Our aim is to constantly broaden the range of products we sell while keeping the quality as high as possible so while the knife you're currently interested may not be available, don't discount one of our other knives in the meantime.
Want to see everything we've got in stock right now?
If you want an at-a-glance view of all the knives we have and refine by knife type, blacksmith, price and more.
If you'd like to view everything, both in and out of stock, here are all our Japanese chef knives.
Can you tell me as soon as stock arrives?
Yes of course. There are a few ways to stay up to date:
If you'd like to be notified when a specific knife comes back into stock - you can add your email by clicking the "Notify me" button on that knife. We send one email per knife and never use that email for marketing, it's just for stock notification.
Why do we keep knives on display if they're not in stock?
We know many stores don't display a product if it's not available but after years of speaking with new and repeat customers, many people are willing to wait for one of the knives we sell on the site because they appreciate that the blacksmiths who make these knives are only able to supply small amounts and the wait is worth it!
If you're keen to see us stock a knife or range that we don't currently have or want to know when a specific knife is due back in stock, contact us any time.
We now offer pre-ordering on selected ranges with suppliers who have shorter and more reliable shipping timescales so if a knife is out of stock but we have a confirmed timescale for delivery we allow you to make the purchase and effectively reserve your knife and we'll ship it as soon as it's back in stock.
