Product detail

We can mark Suncraft MU edition as a successful experiment. It is a clash of two cultures, which results in a modern universal set of knives. Fans of Japanese cuisine, as well as those who feel more confident when preparing Western dishes, will find something to their liking.

Design is the work of Italian designers Nuncio Paola Carallo and Jacopo Roman Grandis. Both "worlds" are also represented in the materials. The east is characterized by handles made of genuine bamboo wood, while the vanadium-molybdenum steel blades are typical of western knives. The same is true of the composition of the knives themselves. You will find usuba, deba and yanagi but also gyuto, sujuhiki, santoku, petty, peeling and bread knife. Just choose.

The name Mu is borrowed from Zen Buddhism. It is a universal response to koans that have no rational solution. It does not constitute explicit consent or explicit disagreement. Only through meditation can a solution to the koans be found. Suncraft knives, thanks to their simple and clean design, pay homage to the ancient teachings that lead to a positive world.

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.
