Knife sharpening (only available at actual stores)

No matter how high priced a knife is, if it is not sharpened, it will not be sharp.
A good knife is not an expensive knife, but a well-cared-for one, isn't it?
If the knife is not sharp enough, extra force will be applied to the hand, which can cause injury, and the original flavor of the food will not come out.
It is said that if you cook with a knife that is not sharp enough, the seasoning will be too strong, so sharpness is an important element of cooking that is related to the taste itself.

We have a variety of grinding stones that can be used for specific purposes.
If you would like to start sharpening knives by yourself, please feel free to ask us at the store for instructions on how to sharpen your knives.
You can also have your knives sharpened by our staff for a fee, so please take advantage of this service as well.

※Please note that we may not be able to accept knife sharpening depending on the shape or material.
For more information, please contact the store.

The reason for the birth of the whale knife
"I want you to make a blunt knife for sharpening children's pencils."
At the mother's request.

The black surface of the whale knife is an oxide film, and it is characterized by a slightly rough texture and uneven color that gives a handmade taste.
