Kamata Hakensha (Kenmax Inc.)

By Weekender Editor

The collection of knives available at Kamata Hakensha runs the gamut from heavy cleavers to the most delicate sashimi blades. The Kamata family has been in the knife business since 1923, when Seiichi Kamata’s grandfather opened a shop in the Asakusa neighborhood, where he sharpened and maintained knives for restaurants and private customers around the area. The business expanded to selling knives (both Western and Japanese), and Seiichi has also founded the in-house brands Kenmax and Togiharu. Yet, true to the family tradition, the heart of the business is still based around the sharpener’s craft, so when you pay a visit to the shop, you might well find his son at the shop’s grindstone, sharpening a customer’s knife.
