    A video playlist of handle removal and installation

    Just to let you guys know that I have composed a playlist on the topic of rehandling on my youtube channel which I recently started to put more effort into.

    Domain name change and SALE

    Knives and Stones Australia has been using the domain from the beginning, as it was easier to remember (IMHO). In late 2019, we have started our US operations with the domain name, yet it is not the ideal name because virtually no US business uses...

    Japan Trip, July 2019

    Hi KKF, I am back :)

    I know I have been away from KKF for quite a while now and sometimes guys have a hard time try to reach me. Of course I can make up a ton of excuses, such as running a small business is hard, running the business on multiple locations is hard, and having a 7-year old and 2-year old doesn't help...

    Saji Damascus R2 with Tanaka Western handle

    Just want to share this unique line of product to you. Basically I asked a craftsman who use to work on Tanaka's western ironwood line to put on the same type of coke-bottle shaped handle on Saji's knives. Reason? I just don't think there is a better western handle from Japan that is better...
