Kanetsune is located at Seki City, the capital of the Orient and is known to be the City of Blades. The underground method in Japanese sword-making called “Seki-den” which started some 800 years back has been handed down to this present day. One of Japan’s supreme master craftsmen, Kanetsune Seki was able to conserve this method and employ it in all of his knives.
