Kansei Matsuno was born in 1951 in Japan. He loves fishing and tourism, that’s why he always needed good hunting knives. He found very few knives which meet his requirements, so he decided to make knives himself. He used difficult technology, using a file to shape the steel billet. He made knives in this way for two years and then bought a simple belt-sander. Needless to say that productivity and work quality has improved. Soon, his friends began to ask him to design and built knives for them. Then, in 1998, Kansei started manufacturing knifes.
In 2001 Kansei visited an American knife show for the first time, and in 2002, the quality of his knifes improved and he was admitted for a probationary period in the American Knifemakers Guild. Today Kansei prefer to create frameworks folding knives made of titanium, stainless steel blades are VG-10b, OU-31, CV-134. Lining the handle makes it out of steel G-10, deer antler, pearl and coral. He changes the design of knife depending on customer requirements. Now, Kansei is manufacturing a series of first-class folding knives with different original designs and high quality.
