Edmonton, AB

We are an urban woodworking company that handcrafts beautiful, functional spaces and home products out of our downtown studio in Edmonton, Canada.



There's nothing quite like the experience of cutting with a quality knife, and Kevin Kent is no stranger when it comes to owning and selling the best of the best. His fascination with Japanese knives began while he was working as a sous-chef for the legendary chef Fergus Henderson at St. John restaurant in London, England. After selling handcrafted Japanese knives out of a backpack on the back of his bicycle, Kevin decided it was time to expand, and has since 2007 has opened five Knifewear locations across Canada.

In seeking a permanent location for Knifewear within Edmonton, Kevin sought us out to create birch display cases to house and showcase the beautiful Japanese knives that he and the rest of his staff are so passionate about.
