IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
For those of you that may not know what our Garage Sales are all about, here's the deal. We go to Japan and visit knifemakers. We visit ones we normally carry, and buy up stock we don't normally bring in, and we visit knifemakers we DON'T normally carry and ask them what they have that is impressive. THEN, we bring it all back to you, our favourite customer to gawk and drool over. (And for us to gawk and drool over also, tbh.)
This Garage Sale is looking especially great, with hand forged Damascus kitchen knives, higo knives and axes, all from one of the best blacksmiths in the world, Kageura-san. This blacksmith is the real deal. He is one of the best we've worked with, so we are especially excited to have these hard to find items in the shop. He doesn't have an apprentice or employee, so when he retires, his skills will go with him. He's getting up there now and more interested in fishing. The time to get his knives is now.
We also have some hand made knives from Tojiro, made by both Tomo-san, the master blacksmith, as well as by Sayaka-san who, by all reports is the only female blacksmith apprentice in Japan. Very, very cool. Speaking of Tojiro, we'll also be running a sale on their rugged and sexy Flash line.
Other fun items: sake sets, Takamura VG10 knives, knives by the son of legendary blacksmith Keijiro Doi, and of course the usual assortment or rando stuff we found in our travels.
This is also the second online Garage Sale! We have a few knives on our website already, but you'll have to wait until November 7th to purchase. You'll want to check that page every couple days, we'll be adding stock to it as it arrives.

In-store the sale starts when we open at 10:00 a.m. November 7 at all locations except Calgary Farmer's Market. If you are not in a city that has one of our stores, (Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Vancouver) then you can shop online. The online sale goes live at 10:00 a.m. Calgary (MDT) time. Use this handy tool to find out when that is in your timezone. http://www.
Keeping the momentum up after last year’s wildly successful first calendar, Offcuts 2017, Calgary’s finest stripped-down charity calendar, is officially off the presses and ready for purchase.Once again the irreverent 12-month calendar is a celebration of Calgary’s restaurant and food scene, and also twelve of the fellas that infuse that scene with their winning personalities. They bravely let the clothes fall to show that they are more than just pretty faces. They also have big hearts that aren’t too proud to bare it all for a good cause.
Pick up a calendar, meet the Offcuts models,
and partake in some food and beverage!
