Kevin Kent's picture

Kevin Kent

To this day, it’s been his secret and the start of his knife passion. While working in London, UK at the celebrated St. John Restaurant, Kevin bought a Japanese knife and found his calling. Back in Canada, Knifewear was born, as Kevin began selling Japanese kitchen knives from his backpack and bicycle. He now has five knife shops across Canada (with plans for more), opened a chain of stores called Kent of Inglewood (focusing on axes and straight razors), and produced an award winning documentary about Japanese blacksmiths called Springhammer as well as its sequel Springhammer 2: The Making of a Knife. If you meet him in person, ask him to tell you his Lou Reed story.
