Why choose Mujun kitchen knives
Choose Mujun knives if you love high-quality knives, and if you like to make a conscious choice when purchasing a product. Mujun is actively working on various social and community initiatives to keep old traditions alive while creating job opportunities for young people. In addition, Mujun cares about the environment.
Of course, these initiatives are great, but the products should also be of good quality. And Mujun delivers. These knives are wonderful. And when you consider that quality and all the handwork necessary to make such a knife, then look at the price? You'll see that it is more than reasonable.
In 2008, Mujun started collaborating with experienced artisans, with the intention of preserving age-old crafts while modernising the products to reach a larger audience. Mujun protects these old crafts, working with new, young craftsmen to carry these crafts forward and improve them where possible. Mujun has three young apprentices working in their own forge who take knife forging very seriously and aspire to become skilled craftsmen.
Mujun recently acquired a large tract of land in the mountainous, tree-filled region of Shimane. Mujun's vision is to create a village in this area where everyone can become a craftsman, working on a small scale for their community and making use of their natural environment as much as possible. Mujun Planet is all about the revitalization of the satoyama lifestyle, a lifestyle in which a durable and local community is supported. Back to how life was before Industrialisation; a sustainable and local lifestyle.
