Kon'nichiwa Japan!

Fri Aug 30, 2013 3:49 am

Well all, I made to Japan a couple of days ago. Was out in Tokyo last night. Can't wait to get out more and not only take pictures, but also find some great sources for knives!

A friend of mine told me to look for 'jobbers' since they provide the blades to some of the bigger companies. Anyone know of some between Atsugi and Tokyo? I don't want to venture off too far just yet. I figured I'd ask around so I can have a list of places to visit.

Went to Kappabashi today. Came home with a 210mm stainless Gyoto for ~$68. I'm exhausted from being lost the entire day! Will post a few pics later on.

Not sure what steel or anything, but for the price, it seems reasonable. It's super sharp out of the box. I think I'm gonna buy a tomato tomorrow ;)

Here is a LINK to the rest of the pictures I put on my photobucket for those interested.

I'm going to take my SLR next time. Now I know to head out early! Gonna do my best to find the best bang for my buck places. I'd still love to watch one go from start to finish and go home with it :D

That would be a very nice find!

I think I'll have to go to Seki for that though.
