Tokyo – Japanese Fish Knives

When visiting the fish market for a sushi lunch, we passed by a cutlery shop: Masahisa Azuma Minamaoto-no. Many different knives were on display, but my friend Walter wanted for his wife a special one of the highest quality.

The owner of the shop himself went to sharpen the selected knife in the back of the workshop. What skill on display. we were both extatic, and subsequently, I bought a knife for my wife as well.

Happy customers left the shop, not after our bargaining attempt was refuted in utter disgust.
If you visit the fish market in Tokyo, go and have a look. It’s worth it.

PS: The knife is now doing its job in our kitchen. It turned out to be a superb helper, efficient, clean and fast.

    If you happen to be Kyoto please visit Hayakawa Hamonoten for truly exquisite Japanese knives at reasonable prices. My recommendation is to visit a few shops and compare the quality prior to settling to buy knives as they aren’t made to similar standards.
