Ueda Knives. Here is the type of blacksmith we always love to find. His name is Ueda-san and he resides in Yamanashi Pref. Chefknivestogo is the first dealer outside Japan that is currently offering his knives. He was born in Kanagawa Pref (near Tokyo) and has moved to the deep countryside to realize his working style. He built his new workshop by himself and has moved there. He's now set up and is ready to make four smaller sizes of kitchen knives.
