Traditional cutlery
transformed the way people live.

The KAI Group was founded in Seki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan, a city with a remarkable 800-year history of blacksmithing and cutlery production. Drawing deeply on this local tradition of craftsmanship, we now manufacture a comprehensive range of cutlery products for every occasion.

Our product development incorporates DUPS³ thinking, which stands for excellence in Design, Uniqueness, Patents (intellectual property rights), Safety, Stories and Sustainability. By manufacturing products that meet these criteria, we hope to deliver wonderful experiences and good times.

Going forward, we will continue our efforts in making KAI products an integral part of daily life for people around the globe, while also considering the environmental impact of the materials in our products and their disposal.
