  • If you are to buy the knife, this may be a place to go. But the prices are pretty high and I actually found nothing to dream about after this visit (and I was looking forward to it). So go only if you already have an idea what knife is missing in your arsenal or if you are already near the store.
  • The constant stream of people through this shop making it hard to get the attention of the staff keep me from giving it a higher rating. I have several knives from this shop and love them all. Staff is very helpful and speak Japanese English and I heard some French too. Go and pick up a knife that will last your lifetime.
