Custom Damascus Straight Razor by Adam Grosskopf

December 5, 2016

We had the great fortune to meet Adam Grosskopf at the Sydney Knife Show this past August. He had a wide selection of beautiful straight razors at very reasonable prices. More importantly, they were actually properly honed up and in shave ready condition. We are very happy to announce that we have an Adam Grosskopf original damascus straight razor for sale on our Artisan Mall.

Jende Artisan Mall – Just One of the Changes at Jende

May 27, 2016

We’ve recently made some serious changes to our website! www.jendeindustries.com has gotten a long overdue upgrade and is now on a much more powerful and versatile platform! One of the major changes is the addition of the Jende Artisan Mall. The Jende Artisan Mall is is a gathering place for amazing and talented artisans whose products and services compliment our own.  It’s best described as a farmers market. And like farmers markets, it’s populated with local and regional artisans who bring together the diversity, vibrancy, and creativity of the community under one roof.

Jende Artisan Mall

The Jende Artisan Mall is quite diverse, as we span a large area of all things sharpening. The purpose of the mall is to encourage our customers to discover a wider range of related artisans within the area or areas of their own interests. On the flip side, since many artisans prefer to concentrate on the quality of their products over marketing them, the Artisan Mall gives them exposure to a wider audience – and not just for exposure’s sake.

The major areas actually mirror those of the main Jende categories, and expand to more specific areas, such as custom knife makers, oboe and bassoon reed makers, shaving soaps, custom woodworking, and sharpening services, just to name a few. So we hope everyone will come by and check out the new site, and support the Jende Artisan Mall!
