Craftsmen

"Taski knives are genuinely handcrafted by us in Seki.

To craft the finest knives, we don't just sharpen our skills; we also pour our hearts into fostering the passion and dedication of each artisan.

As the factory manager, it fills me with joy to see our years of effort in every Taski knife, and to know you can feel their excellence in your hands."

The Story
Behind the Name Taski

The name "Taski" draws inspiration from the traditional Japanese "Tasuki" (襷), originally a functional cord used to fasten kimono sleeves, facilitating unimpeded movement. This practical item evolved into a symbol of continuity and heritage in Japanese relay races, where tasuki cords replaced batons, embodying the valuable legacy passed from generation to generation.

Taski knives aspire to reflect the essence of their namesake, emphasizing premium quality, authenticity, sustainability, and contemporary usability. Taski promises to be a symbol of products that pass on Japan's rich traditional craftsmanship and cultural heritage to the next generation, putting responsible consumption practices that were once taken for granted back into the hands of the world for a better future.
