Product detail

Suncraft Corporation Limited (formerly Kawashima Industries) is based in where else but Seki. This small city in Gifu prefecture is often referred to as the knife capital. The city received this epithet thanks to its long knife history and the presence of many important manufacturers.

The Senzo Classic range of knives belongs to the so-called hybrid constructions. It is not a half tang, but neither is it a classic full tang. The blade has a welded steel bolster and tang. The handle, which fits exactly with the bolster, is connected to the blade with fixing glue. It is a very solid construction, despite the absence of rivets.

The blade has 33 layers, while the core is forged from VG-10 steel. It is known for its high carbon content and reaches a hardness of up to 61 HRC. The lower part of the blade bears a typical Damascene pattern with a hint of hamon, while its upper part is hammered. Just like VG-10, the outer layers of softer and harder steel are anti-corrosive, so the blade does not require special care. The edge is symmetrical in the shape of the letter "V".

The oval cone handle made of stabilized pakkawood smoothly transitions into the steel bolster. The interface of these two components is defined by a discreet red ring, which aesthetically follows the red logo in kanji characters located on the blade. All details are processed at a high level and the tasteful packaging only emphasizes the value parameters of this product.

If you are not a fan of the traditional Wa Bocho construction and find riveted handles too un-Japanese, the Senzo Classic series is for you.

About producer


Seki, with a tradition longer than 700 years, belongs together with the Sakai and Tosa regions to the oldest centers of Japanese blacksmithing. The ideal conditions for this craft attracted many blacksmiths already at the end of the 12th century. The legendary Motoshige was among them. He was aware of the presence of high-quality iron ore sand, pine peat and the proximity of water sources. Everything a blacksmith needs for his work. Adding to their craftsmanship, swords were created that quickly gained their reputation. The saying that a Seki blade will never bend or break accompanies local products to this day.

The fact that 40% of the local industry belongs to the knife industry speaks of the specialization of the city of Seki. Many important manufacturers of famous brands such as Masahiro, Kasumi, Mcusta-Zanmai, Hattori and many others are located here. Nippon Knives brings you another one - SUNCRAFT. 

Kawashima Industries, the owner of the Suncraft brand, is one of the bigger manufacturers in Seki. Since 1947, it has specialized in knives and various other kitchen tools. The credo of the company is to investigate the needs of customers and respond flexibly to them. Significant investments in development and research help it to do so. 

As is common in Japan, Kawashima Industries is a family business in which individual generations take turns. The founders of the company are rightfully proud of their ancestor, Mr. Senzo. He participated with his own resources in the construction of public zones and facilities in the city of Seki. He always had respect for its inhabitants and their needs. The current owners have the same respect for their customers. And in order not to forget the legacy of their ancestor, they call the knives made by company craftsmen Senzo.
