Master Blacksmith Masashi Yamamoto at Knifewear

Arts & Culture


map-icon 800 Bank Street

Japanese knife making has a 1200 year old tradition of raging forges, glowing steel, and back-breaking work. It involves honing craftsmanship and expertise over not just years or decades, but a lifetime. There aren’t many people who carry the weight of history and tradition as intensely as the blacksmith, and there aren’t many nearly as revered and mimicked as the Japanese blade maker. Knifewear is lucky enough to work with the people that keep this trade alive in Japan. We are very proud to be bringing Masashi Yamamoto, master blacksmith and one of our most popular knifemaking partners to Canada. Also, to celebrate his visit, all Masashi knives including his SLD, SLD Damascus, and VS1 Tsuchime lines are 10% off. We’ll also have special Masashi stickers and t-shirts available! Click below for more information and a video of Masashi being interviewed about his blacksmithing practice.
