Ask the staff to find the best knife for you and your purpose e.g. cut vegetables, prepare sushi… whether you are chef at a restaurant or just cook at home.

We will check the materials available (ceramic, steel…) and list the main areas (e.g. Seki) producing the knives sold at Kamata Hakensha.

We will check the price of a knife sharpener and check Kamata’s documents explaining “sharpening”.
