Why choose Suncraft knives?
In terms of designs, Suncraft remains largely faithful to the traditional Japanese kitchen knives of the past. Where they distinguish themselves is in the use of high-quality materials such as stabilized pakka wood, Damascus steel with a core of Japanese VG10 steel, and premium SG2 powder steel, which is one of the best types of steel for kitchen knives. It is prized for its excellent corrosion resistance and sharpness retention. The brand also plays with the concept of a Japanese kitchen knife. The Senzo Twisted Octagon series with spiral 'Wa-style' handle is a fine example of this.

History of Suncraft
Suncraft was founded in 1948 in Seki City, Japan, by Kohei Kawashima. Seki is the knife capital of Japan. Here, samurai swords and other cutting tools have been made for hundreds of years. It's a city that is alive with knife culture and history. Over the years, Suncraft has continued to invest in the latest production methods, without losing sight of the rich traditions of Japanese knife making. And still, the company is run by the Kawashima family. Knivesandtools has been selling Suncraft knives since 2022.
