Takahashikusu makes Japanese knives under the customer’s trademarks according to their budget and demands. You will be able to create original knives by choosing various items such as the type of steel material, edge and handle, so please feel free to consult us.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
About how much would it cost?
Since there is a wide range of choices, it will differ case by case. We will provide the price during our business negotiations.
How long will it take for the products to be delivered?
Since Japanese knives are made by hand, we can only give a rough delivery time. Please understand that we are not able to give an exact delivery date.
Is there a minimum order quantity and minimum order amount?
The minimum order quantity of each Japanese knife is 5 to 10, depending on its rank. The minimum order quantity of each Western knife is 12. We will let you know our minimum order amount in the first e-mail.

Do you only make Japanese knives?
No, we also have Western knives, scissors, nail clippers and bone tweezers. It is possible to make Western knives under your trademark too.
What are the initial costs for a customer’s logo?
When we make knives under the customers’ brands, we will ask them to make the engraved mark and laser engraved printing plate. These are the initial costs and the costs will vary depending on the size of the logo. Customers can use the engraved mark until it is worn out. It will last for approximately 3 to 5 years, depending on the order amount.
We don’t have a registered trademark. Would that be a problem?
Our company owns several trademarks, so you can sell knives under our brands.
Which courier do you use?
We use DHL or UPS. We can use a service provided by the Japanese Post Office (EMS) if you would prefer.
Can we add insurance for shipping?
Yes. The insurance costs will vary depending on the size/value of a package.
Which currency do you accept?
We accept Japanese Yen. We can also accept US Dollars. However, the price quote may be changed.
Which payment method do you accept?
We ask all overseas customers to send payment via a remittance in Japanese yen to our bank account.
Which side pays the bank transfer service fees?
Because we don’t differentiate the prices between our domestic customers and our overseas customers, we ask all overseas customers to pay all bank transfer service fees including an intermediate bank fee. An Intermediate bank fee is incurred if there are no direct paths between a customer’s bank and our bank.
Do you sell your products to general consumers?
Unfortunately, we do not.
