Availabile: Gyuto



With a polished, 21cm (8 1/4″) long 1095 steel blade and handle made of clear imbuia wood with a great stripped tridimensional figure attached to its tang by copper pins, this knife is part of a trio that I created as a design study as I am trying to move away from the academic lines of the traditional Japanese knives but still keeping my own style and the essence ofmy work, and  it is the only one of them with a polished finish and copper pins – it is also the only one still availabile.

It goes for US$ 175.00, plus US$ 25.00 for international shipping to most everywhere. An edge protector is included. As usual, first come, first serve!

To order, contact me by mobile/whatsapp 55-15-997120993 or e-mail me at ivan@ivancampos.net. Paypal welcome!

Availabile: French Chef





With an octagonal handle made of camel thorn – an African wood that has an unique figure and is very hard and difficult to work – capped off with a piece of clear castelo wood and a 1095 steel blade that is approximatelly 22cm (8 1/2″) long blade, this knife is a rare piece since I have made very few chefs in the French chef´s style (thinner, more triangular than the German chef’s knives) and only bough one block of this wood many years ago from wich no more than three of four handles were made.

US$ 220.00, plus US$ 25.00 for international shipping to most everywhere and, as usual, first come, first serve!

Availabile: Another Fighter!


This is another of the new fighters I have been working lately. And it is quite a real fighter – there is nothing utilitarian about its 4″ long double edged blade, Japanese inspired cord wrapped handle with cyanocrilate reinforcement and a long damascus steel menuki and long, aggressive skull crusher.

Probably, this will be the only of its model as I found it too similar to a model of another knifemaker, although it was just coincidence.

It goes for US$ 145.00 plus US$ 25.00 for international shipping to most everywhere and, as usual, first come, first serve, and to order contatct be mobile/whatsapp at 55-15-007120993 or e-mail me at ivan@ivancampos.net.

Availabile: Mini Petty “Peso Pena”


This little handy knife weights next to nothing (peso pena = featherweight) thanks to its 2mm thick, 11cm long blade and the very light octagon shaped handles made of clear imbuia wood but don´t get fooled: its blade is k100 steel and ready to give the great performance this material iscapable of.

I made four of them with what I had left of 2mm k100 steel and there are still three availabile for US$ 95.00, plus US$ 25.00 for international shipping. As usual, first came, first serve!

To order, just reach me by cell/whatsapp at 55-15-997120993 or e-mail me at ivan@ivancampos.net.


Availabile: New Special Yanagi Ba!


This model has its blade inspired on the profile of the traditional Japanese swords(it is not a takobiki neither a tuna sword) and, originally, it should be a two piece only edition for 2018, that were promptly sold, but the several requests I got for a model like this made me decde to make another group, theis time  with five pieces,  but with a different size, balde profile and materials to preserve the identity of both models.

These knives have 12″ long 1095 steel blades and jacarandá da Bahia ( Brazilian rosewood ) handles woth brass collars. Their price is US$ 235,00, plus US$ 25,0 for shipping and it comes with a felt lined leather sheath.

Important notice: as of now, of the original five knives, only two are availabile and they will be availabile on a first come, first serve basis asusual. To order, just contact me by whatsapp at55-15-997120993 or write to ivan@ivancampos.net.
