our story

WHY WE MAKE KNIVES

For hundreds of years, Japanese blacksmiths have perfected their forging techniques. With katanas now less in demand, the vast majority of forges have shifted their production to kitchen knives. Recognized today in kitchens around the globe, the modern Japanese knife combines ancient forging techniques with the precision of modern technology to bring you the finest knives in the world.With the highest quality standards, Hazaki is dedicated to producing superior knives for everyday use that people can afford without spending a fortune.

Both Japanese forging and Canadian woodworking techniques have been perfected for hundreds of years. We wanted to offer the perfect combination between both to provide some of the finest kitchen knives in the world.
