Business address: Japan Trading Hogebrinkerweg 15-C 3871 KM Hoevelaken was founded in 2011 by the young entrepreneurs Marieke and Christian Jagersma together with father / father in law Willem Mak. The passion for Japanese kitchen knives began in 2005 and got a boost in 2008 after a visit to Japan and the forge of Ichiro Hattori and a number of other forges in Seki. Only in 2011 the webshop was a fact. We try to import the knives directly from the smithy so that we can offer the best prices and the best products and we hope to spread the passion for Japan and the Japanese chef's knives in the Netherlands and abroad. We are happy to provide you with personal advice and are happy to show you all the ins and outs of Japanese chef's knives.
