Product detail

"Nice knives, shame about the name" said one of our customers. When asked why, he explained that the word Suncraft does not sound Japanese at all. Although he is right, we could reason that the sun and craft have a lot in common with Japan. This customer is not at all pleased with the name of the new series produced by the manufacturer from the city of Seki. But knives definitely yes.

Senzo "Entrée" is the name of a series of knives that are the gateway to the world of Japanese blades from the Suncraft workshop. It is a certain "appetizer" to get you in the right mood for the main course, let's say in the form of Senzo Black. The Senzo "Entrée" series blade has everything you would expect from a Japanese blade. It is three-layered /San Mai/ with a very hard core and a fine edge. The AUS8 core produced by the mammoth Aichi steel plant is hardened to a very solid hardness of 58 HRC. Like the core, the outer layers are made of anti-corrosion material. The edge is symmetrical on both sides. In order for the blade to visually resemble the country of origin, it carries, in addition to stamped kanji characters, an artificially created hamon. This reference to Japanese swords subtly separates the hairline texture from the polished underside.

Full tang construction is not usual in this price range. The significantly profiled handle is even more surprising. The absence of a bolster is artfully disguised by an ergonomic bevel at the interface with the blade. The upper part is rounded for a comfortable grip. The aesthetic aspect is completed by a decorative rivet.

3 knives from the Senzo "Entrée" series will not only cover most tasks in the kitchen, but will also please your eyes.

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.
