the GOODS from Knifewear

Vancouver, BC | Knifewear believes that when your neighbours need a hand, you extend one without hesitation. At the time of this release there are 200 wildfires burning in British Columbia and 14,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Knifewear, having opened their Vancouver store just last year, wants to help those who have welcomed them with open arms. For the entire month of July, 100% of the money taken in for sharpening services at all shops across Canada will be donated directly to the Red Cross British Columbia Fires Appeal.

Knifewear and Kent of Inglewood customers have stepped up for victims of wildfires before. In May of 2016, when the fires in Fort McMurray destroyed homes and threatened an entire community. A total of $18,300 was sent to the Red Cross. We hope to be as successful with this fundraising effort.

Throughout the year, both Knifewear and Kent of Inglewood normally gives 50% off their sharpening proceeds to local charities benefiting a variety of causes. Each store gives to a charity in their own city, with the exception of times like these when the need is felt nationally.

FOR WHO: Anyone with anything that needs sharpening, and wants to contribute.
WHAT: Knife, axe, razor, scissor sharpening, all proceeds go to charity!
WHEN: The entire month of July 2017.
WHERE: All Knifewear and Kent of Inglewood locations.

ABOUT KNIFEWEAR

IMG_4788

Knifewear sells crazy sharp knives that keep their edge longer than you ever thought possible. Japanese knives are made with harder steel, and because of this they stay sharper for longer. By bringing these knives to professional and home chefs, Knifewear creates happiness in the kitchen. No more squished tomatoes!

While working in London, at the famed St. John Restaurant, Kevin Kent, owner of Knifewear, developed a taste for exquisite Japanese blades. Upon moving back to Calgary he found there was nowhere he could indulge his new-found desire for them. Realizing he could help others find the same joy he found in the kitchen, he developed the relationships in Japan that allowed him to bring these shockingly great knives to Calgary. His first sales were to chefs, often from a backpack while riding across town on the company bicycle. Many great knives were purchased in the loading bays and back doors of restaurants, turning many of his friends into customers, but also customers into friends. In February of 2008, his first shop opened in Calgary. As of 2016, Knifewear has shops in four cities: Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Vancouver.

Performance at Knifewear starts where other knife stores top out. This means that their entry level knives are as good as the best knives in every other knife shop in Canada… and it only goes up from there. Japanese knives are also lighter than other knives, which makes them easier to handle and takes the struggle out of dicing and chopping.

Knifewear carries a huge selection of knives, the majority of them are handmade and many of these lines are never seen outside of Japan except at Knifewear. They are also super sexy, desirable works of art.

Never tried a Japanese knife? come by Knifewear and “test drive” one.
