CAMBODIA, Pochentong: On the outskirts of Phnom Penh, “The Citadel” and its founder Dominique Eluére employ 120 local Cambodian workers producing Japanese inspired hunting and kitchen knives using traditional techniques. The pride of production is and will always remain the Katana sword made as closely to traditional methods as possible.

The Citadel produces over eighty different kinds of knives and thirty varieties of swords shipping to collectors in the United States, China, Japan and Europe.
