  New! X-mas Special from the Etching/Inlay Artist, Katsuhiko Miura
 
 
 
Mr. Miura at work
 
 
 
 
KMC-100 African "BIG CAT"
 
I have been working with the etching/inlay Artist, Mr. Katsuhiko Miura since this March to create his art etching and inlay work with my 3 bladed large Conoe pattern Pocket knivesmade by Mr. Mamoru Katoh long time ago (Mr. Katoh has passed away last year at age of 86). In June, Mr. Miura came up with sketches of various wild animals drawing hand drawn by him, so I chosen good ones to go for the blades and bolsters. After waiting six months, he has finally finished two knives with gorgeous work of art right for Xmas season. I'm very impressed with his detailed and time-consuming works of deep etching and small Abalone inlays, and am able to offer something special for this Xmas season.

The 3 bladed large Canoe pattern knife is made of AUS-6 Stainless steel mirror polished blades and 4-1/2" solid Nickel silver rounded handle with White Mother of Pearl inlays and Nickel silver liner. Each blade back and two stainless steel spring bars have a hand file work to enhance this gorgeous knife. 3.5mm thick blades are 3" large, 2" medium and 1-1/2" small, and weight 210g, Comes with Blue velvet wooden presentation box. A perfect gift for your collection or for someone special.

This African "BIG CAT" knife has Lion (front right bolster), Puma (front left bolster), Female Lion (front center bolster), Cheetah & Prong Horn (large blade), Tiger (medium blade), Lynx (small blade), Bobcat (back right bolster), Puma (back left bolster) and Lynx (back center bolster)

Nice feedback from Jonathon .......................................... Hello Koki
I cannot tell you how spectacular the African Safari Canoe knife by Master Miura is. Stunning & Beautiful.
The best knife in my collection. I am so lucky to purchase this. Just so wonderful.
I look forward to more purchases. I really appreciate you. Thank you
I hope you and your family have a wonderful year.

For those who have missed this art piece, we have asked Mr. Miura to make 5 pieces more in 2014, so please email to jemmy@kencrest.us, if you want to reserve one.

  New! Hiroshi Suzuki Custom Knives
  
 
What a beautiful mirror polished blade! This is the first impression for everyone who saw Mr. Suzuki's knives. He devotes tremendous times and technique to achieve this sparkling mirror finish. He finishes each blade by hand polishing (no belt sander) from coarse to finer sandpapers (#800, 1000 and 1200 grits). After heat treated, he will start hand polishing again with #1200 up to #2000, and then final finishing to a high mirror with Diamond Abrasive Pastes. No compromise! If he found any flaws or scratches during the polishing steps, the entire blade surface will be re-ground and re-plolished again from the beginning.

His father runs a small factory in Saitama for precision Nippers. By helping father's work at young age, he became interested in the metal processing and began making knives about 30 years ago. He is actively making knives and attending various knife shows. I was helping his table at the Blade Show in Atlanta, and had a chance to get six knives from him. Now, we are pleased to be able to offer his fine works to the JKD customers. It's worth for his prices!

HIR
O
  Bushman's Machete   Since introducing HIRO Machete Jungle Knife (shown below), we have instantly sold out all the knives in stock at Hiro factory for it's durability and functions you can depend on in any hard situaions. Due to the large minimum in new production, we had to give up the new production. However, we are still receiving many inquiries and requests to make it available again. We are looking at the possibility of any smaller minimum production, even at a bit higher price, and hoping this will happen some times in 2012

Meanwhile, we would like to offer HIRO Bushman's Machete from same maker and heavy duty quality. The blade is made of VG-2 core edge forge clad (San Mai) with blakened and Tsuchime hammered stainless steel, Full tang and hand contoured beautiful Cocobolo wood handle with brass tubular pins and lanyard hole on end. Comes with double stitched custom Leather sheath.

4/07/12 Up! Just received a good feedback from our repeat customer, Marcin Morawski, Poland

Dear Koki and Jemmy,

As usual - thank you very much for 200% professional service. Hiro Bushman Machete is impressive knives that looks and works and gives a trust much, much, much better than one could expect from a photograph that already is impressive. Together with some Kiku's (like Yoroi Toshi, Full Contact Agressive) and Takeshi Saji Musashi (especially those build to order with stag handle) Hiro BM is on the top of my fixed knives heavy category collection. Hiro BM is  a very "smart" fellow. Everyone knows that one can cut and chop everything with it. On the other side: the handle with special "half ring" between handle and blade allows to use it for very precise jobs, just like a small knife.  Very interesting piece of steel. My full recomendation. 

Happy Eastern

Best regards,
Marcin Morawski

 Old BlackJack Knives in Mint Condition for Collectors 

  
 

 No   Gimmicks... Just Performancebj.jpg

 

 During the years of 1987 to 1990, Blackjack knives have been designed by Mike Stewart and produced in Seki, Japan. I was deeply involved with all Japanese production before they went to bankruptcy. I have recently found some old Blackjack knives at the factories, and would like to offer them for Blackjack collectors.  Since original Japanese production was very small quantity per model, it is hard to find in the market and is now becoming a rare collector model.  You can get Blackjack information at some forums, www.KnifeForums.com , www.BlackjackKnives.us etc.

Mr. Seizo Imai was involved with this production at his factory in Seki, stating with Kraton handle to Micarta, Cocobolo and Stag handle versions, and they were the best sellers in Blackjack line. Over 40 years now, Mr. Imai is now an individual custom knifemaker and is making various famous models replicas such as Loveless, Horn, Centofante in fine details and precision work. You can see his craftsmanship at Imai page.  I have recently asked him to make some custom made replicas of Blackjack Folding Mambas, and he has hand made 3 pcs. each of four different handles in exactly same size and shape, but with upgraded ATS-34 blade instead of AUS-8 originally used. This will be a good addition to your Blackjack collection!
