Shokunin - Etsy

Shokunin Knife

We want to share with you an important update regarding our presence on Etsy. After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close our Etsy store. This decision was influenced by several factors that we believe are important to share with you, our loyal customers.

Firstly, we have been increasingly concerned about the rising fees imposed by Etsy. These fees have impacted our ability to offer our products at the best prices without compromising on the quality that you have come to expect and love.

Secondly, we have observed a series of decisions by Etsy that we feel are biased and not in the best interest of fair trade. This has challenged our ability to operate in an environment that aligns with our core values of fairness and equality.

Lastly, the fierce competition on the platform has led to an environment where, in many cases, the focus has shifted to lowering prices at the expense of product quality. Our commitment to you has always been to provide the highest quality products, and we found this increasingly difficult to maintain in such an environment.

We believe this move will allow us to better serve you and stay true to our ethos of providing top-quality, handcrafted products without compromise. We are excited to continue our journey directly through our own platform, where we can foster a more direct and meaningful relationship with you.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We look forward to welcoming you to our new home and serving you with the same passion and quality you've always known us for.
