[FIRSTLOOK] is where we introduce a new pop-up for the very first time. It's now in our UPCOMING calendar and should be in yours too.
The chef-owned independent Knifewear opened in their doors in 2007 and already have fives stores across Canada from Ottawa to Kelowna. For the first time ever, owner/knife-nerd Kevin Kent is bringing Canada’s first Japanese knife shop to Vancouver with a one-week pop-up opening July 22.
Expect to find hundreds of knives from more than 40 of the best Japanese knife brands including, Masakage, Fujiwara San, and Moritaka Hamono. They’ll also have chef-curated cookbooks, beautiful made in Canada Larchwood brand cutting boards, and exceptional kitchen gadgets. There’s also the classic shave shop with high quality shaving gear; straight razors, safety razors, soaps, aftershaves, badger and horsehair brushes.
“Cooking is the new rock and roll,” Kent says. “And the new black leather pants are Japanese knives.”
#Knifewear's Vancouver Pop-Up is open July 22-27 daily from 11-7pm
The Grand Opening Party is July 22 6-9pm. Free with RSVP here.
