Dedicated to Sharp Knives Since 2008

Knifewear quietly opened in March 2008 in Calgary, and has since added stores in Vancouver, Ottawa, and Edmonton. Our knife stores have become a destination/hang-out for those who love Japanese steel and are addicted to sharp.

We carry knives not found in any other shop in Canada. We like exclusive, scary sharp, high performance blades, and travel all over Japan to find them.

We also aim to have awesome selection of chef quality tools for your kitchen, whether you are a professional working the line, or someone at home looking for tools to kick it up a notch.
