Forging Fine Cutlery in Kyoto, Japan

Welcome. Bazes Blades is a one-man workshop nestled in the hills of Kyoto, Japan. Each blade is carefully forged and ground by hand, with the utmost attention paid to both performance and aesthetics. If you are interested in purchasing a knife, please use the CONTACT page to add your name to the mailing list. Current pricing for knives is approximately $65 per inch of blade length. As knives become available, members on the list will be notified and can purchase them on a first-come first-served basis. My books for full custom orders are currently closed.  Please check out the GALLERY for some examples of my past work. For the latest photographs of my work, please see my Instagram page: bazesblades
