  • The owner is a knife sharpener who sells knives from Osaka & surrounding prefectures. He speaks very little English but enough to assist you. The knives are labeled with a code system so you know...

  • The shopkeeper was very friendly and even hand-embossed our name in katakana on our chef knife. Very little English spoken, best if you can speak some Japanese.
  • Unfortunately the younger man (plenty of pictures of him here) who used to run the shop has passed away. Now only the older gentleman is running the shop. Came back here after two years to buy new knives again and talked to the current owner. He will close the shop in 2028, all the knives are 30% off now.
