Can I have my package delivered to a designated delivery locker?

To prevent your package from being lost or stolen, we are unable to accommodate contactless delivery, but you can specify that your package be delivered to a delivery locker.

*If you prefer this option, please let us know in the memo field when ordering.

Do you accept resharpening by mail?

Yes, however, shipping fees will be the responsibility of the customer. For more information, please check the [Sharpening Service] page.

How long does it take to engrave a knife?

For 500 yen per knife, you can have your name engraved in Japanese kanji or katakana for in-person purchases. After you purchase the product and confirm the draft of your name, the engraving will be completed in approximately 5 to 10 minutes.

Please note that the engraving is done by hand, so if there are a large number of characters or lines, it may take longer.
