Our Story

Seisuke Knife's mission is to introduce Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship to customers by selling high quality Japanese knives. At Seisuke Knife, we believe that a kitchen knife is more than just a simple tool to cut food, but an art piece that a craftsman puts their soul into.

Our NE Alberta store has been operating since November 2016. We display a variety of knives from some of the most revered knife craftsmen in the Japanese knife industry such as Yu Kurosaki, Yoshimi Kato, and Katsushige Anryu just to name a few. Come and stop by to experience the world of Japanese knives!

Large Selection

We boast a robust selection of high quality knives imported from Japan. From inexpensive everyday cutlery to beautifully hand-forged knives, we're sure to have the perfect knife for you! 

Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff

Stop by our shop in Portland Oregon and let a member of our staff help you find your perfect fit. With years of experience working with knives, they know the practical differences between the knives and will help you narrow down our vast selection. 

Sharpening Services

Our sharpeners have years of experience and can give you the best edge on your knife. We offer a variety of repair services to skillfully restore your knife to its former glory. 


Every year we celebrate the anniversary of our opening by inviting some of the craftsmen we work closely with to Portland! This is a great time for our customers to meet the hardworking people who make the tools they love.

Plan on stopping by during our next party and get an extra discount on one of the craftsmen's knives!

Highlights of Past Years:

In 2019, Shungo Ogata engraved customers names on his knives!

In 2017, we partnered with Zilla Sake Sushi to purchase a whole Tuna! I can't wait to see what we'll do at our next one!
