Custom Knife Order Form - Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide

Thank you for looking at getting a knife custom made through us at Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide. We want to make you something truly one of a kind! You should seeing this page because we have sent you this form and asked you to fill it out. If you have found this by yourself and want to make a custom order with us, please contact us first. Custom form requests without previous communication will not be responded to.

There are some things to be aware of when making this application:

- You will be sent a quote for the full amount, these quotes are only valid for seven days from time of issuance.

- This quote will be in Japanese Yen.

- Sometimes certain steels, handles, blade styles or other parts will be unavailable or incompatible with each other. If so, we will contact you and ask if you want something different or recommend alternatives.

- Certain handles sometimes have to be made with certain styles (urushi-type handles are octagonal for example), so if there is a mismatch we will contact you and offer alternatives, or prioritise handle material over shape.

- Lead times on custom orders can vary greatly, depending on a large range of factors. Expect anywhere from three months to one year depending on the order.

- There are no refunds on custom orders.

- Discounts cannot be applied to custom orders. However, if the order is over 40,000JPY free shipping is applied.

- We cannot guarantee work from a particular blacksmith.

- We will request your shipping address once a quotation is approved.

- Name engraving is free and is done on the blade. This can be done in Japanese or English. For other languages, please ask first.
