Built on six centuries of sword making tradition.
Timeless design combined with the sharpness, strength and durability of a Samurai sword - KANETSUGU Knives bring functional elegance to your kitchen.
Kanetsugu has been a renowned maker of Samurai swords and blades for more than 170 years. Since 1849, their tradition of Samurai sword making has been passed down through generations of legendary bladesmiths and is still reflected in the quality of the knives they make today.
When the demand for swords diminished after 1870, Kanetsugu continued as a maker of fine kitchen knives incorporating their unique "HAMAGURI" (clam shape) blade - known to be razor sharp yet highly durable.
Since then, Kanetsugu has advanced the sharpness, durability, and performance of their knives with cutting-edge technology while staying true to their elegant aesthetic. To this day, Kanetsugu’s commitment to exquisite craftsmanship has remained the same.
