Knifewear Spring Garage Sale April 24-30, 2017

Garage sale is a super fun week at Knifewear. Over the years the event has grown to be legendary amongst Chefs and Knife aficionados. 

The items at the Garage Sale are all the items that Kevin pick's up on his trips to Japan. He buys prototypes (new products that blacksmiths are experimenting with), One of a kind knives (like all of the Takeda knives in this sale); retired sample knives (and some repaired knives), scratch/dent items, and unique things Kevin finds.

It's our favourite way to bring great knives at great prices to chefs. It's also a nice thank you to our best customers. And it's a great way to introduce new customers to our knives and shop!

Follow Kevin's trip to Japan through his twitter @knifenerd and let him know if you are looking for anything particular! Knifewear social accounts on instagram, twitter, and Facebook will be posting pics of knives before the big day! 

You'll want to arrive early to check out these exciting, one of a kind knives!

Kevin Kent


Kevin Kent’s fascination with Japanese knives began while he was working as sous-chef for the legendary chef Fergus Henderson at St. John restaurant in London, England. In 2007, he began selling handcrafted Japanese knives out of a backpack on the back of his bicycle, while working as a chef at River Café in Calgary, Canada. Kent is just as obsessed with Japanese knives as when he first held one, and a few times a year, he travels to Japan to meet with his blacksmith friends, to drink far too much sake, and to learn more about the ancient art of knife-making. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, he refuses to confess how many Japanese knives he owns….but he admits the number is rather high. Follow Kevin on Twitter @knifenerd
