Shokunin Store is a Japanese online goods store, offering the finest hand picked Japanese artisan products and exceptional customer service to shoppers from the comfort of their own homes.
We are a team of husband and wife. Lindsay is an Australian landscape designer specialised in high end boutique gardens. Yuko is a Japanese “cool hunter” who is passionate about promoting Japan’s craftsmanship and artistry.
It all started when Lindsay bought an ordinary pair of secateurs from a DIY shop in Tokyo. The performance of the thirty dollar secateurs exceeded well beyond Lindsay’s expectation. Imagine what the top of range is like? In search of the very best, we traveled to Northern Japan to a small town called “Sanjo” known for centuries of blacksmithing. This area is also home to the famous kitchen knife brands like “Global” and “Tojiro”. Lindsay fell in love with these tools. He first bought them for himself and his staff. Soon wanted by his arborist friends, his clients, florists nearby… the list grew. Our manufacturers love us because we are their biggest fans and were actual users of their products before we became sellers. We also believe in sustainability and offering products that are good quality and last longer.
We hope you love these beautiful tools as much as we do.
