A bright LED is contained inside the SofViCK Aliens. When you turn this on, it shines through the colored mold to reveal the intricate detail of the carvings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Yoshiharu Cutlery Co. Ltd., we have over 100 years of history creating knives, and we have long been known in Japan as the No.1 carving knife manufacturer.

Each knife in the set has a slightly different design, and you can use each one to create a different pattern.  

The five knives in the set include:  

  • Flex V-Parting
  • Small Gauge
  • V-Parting
  • Medium U-Gauge
  • Small Skew

At Yoshiharu Cutlery Co. Ltd. we have been making cutlery in Seki City, Japan, for over 100 years. For many years now we have been known as the No.1 knife manufacturer in Japan.  

Our craftsmen have honed their skills over many years, and every one of the SofViCK blades has been hand-finished by our artisans with impeccable care and attention to detail.

The refined skill of finishing blades still lives on in the performances of our craftsmen of today. The blades of SofViCK have been hand finished by our artisans one-by-one, with impeccable care.

Risks and challenges

At Yoshiharu Cutlery Co. Ltd., we produce over 600,000 sets of carving knives every year, and we have complete confidence that we will fulfill all of the rewards on time.

The project is running smoothly, and mass production of SofViCK is about to begin.

However, various elements of the project could still change due to unexpected issues, including the shapes of the knives, colors, specs, design of the box, and the delivery date.
