News & Announcements

Regarding shipping to UK:
JapanPost EMS has suspended the acceptance of knives for shipping to the UK due to a UK law regarding knives. As a result, the only available shipping option for the UK is DHL, which has higher rates compared to our standard shipping. For all UK orders, we now offer a flat rate shipping fee of £20 via DHL. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have questions, please feel free to email us at

We're excited to announce several improvements to our website:

  • An enhanced wishlist feature that makes it easier to manage your saved items
  • An improved currency selector for a seamless international shopping experience
  • A streamlined one-page checkout process for faster and more convenient purchasing

We hope these upgrades make your experience on our site even better. Check out the new features and let us know what you think! If you encounter any issues or have any feedback or suggestions, please let us know at
