Samurai Swords for Your Kitchen (Video)

feature story


Kikuichi Cutlery has been in business for longer than some countries have been around. Kikuichi's first sale occurred 100 years before Columbus was even born. When you see the product in person it’s clear Kikuichi hasn’t spent the last half a millenium twiddling its thumbs and stamping out mass produced products for general use. The cutlery is etched with fine designs, pounded into existence by hand the same way it was in the 1300’s. Check out the video to learn more about this small company and its long heritage.
