1F Japanese Knives

Assuring English-Speaking Staff always available at your Service

Nestled in the heart of Kappabashi Street, Musashi invites you to delve into the captivating stories of Japanese craftsmanship behind every knife in our store, along with our Sake specialties. To make your experience seamless, our shop assistants are here to guide you every step of the way. They'll assist you in selecting the perfect knife for your kitchen needs, even helping you slice Japanese radishes to ensure it's just right for you. Furthermore, our English-speaking staff are skilled storytellers, sharing the fascinating narratives of knife craftsmanship and the legendary tales of samurai and yokai associated with each Sake tasting. We aim to bridge any language barrier and provide you with a deeper understanding of Japanese culture.

Vegetable Cutting Experience

When you hold one of our knives at Musashi, you may find yourself tempted to test its sharpness with a slice or chop. That's why we encourage our customers to experience it firsthand by cutting Japanese radishes right then and there. This hands-on approach allows you to truly feel the knife's power and sharpness, helping you make a more informed choice.

How to Use Whetstones

As you continue to use a knife, it naturally loses its sharpness over time. However, the good news is that with the right knowledge of knife sharpening techniques, you can prolong their lifespan significantly. At Musashi, we provide a demonstration on how to effectively use a Whetstone, designed for both convenience and effectiveness, making the process of sharpening knives much easier. With this skill, you can keep using your knives for an extended period, ensuring they stay sharp and ready for all your culinary needs.

Knife Engraving

Once you've purchased a knife at Musashi, we offer the additional service of knife engraving. You can choose to have your name or the name of the person you plan to gift the knife to engraved on the blade.
This personal touch not only adds a special and unique element to your knife but also creates a lasting impression, making it a memorable and cherished item.

Chokin Art knives

Our exquisite Chokin art (gold carving) designs are sure to leave an indelible impression, especially when paired with these exceptional Japanese knives.
Musashi has partnered with the skilled artisan Asamura Takao, boasting over 50 years of experience in the industry.
Each knife undergoes meticulous polishing for several months, with some taking up to a year to perfect.
This limited edition collection pays homage to the traditional Japanese carving style, preserving a craft that has been slowly fading away.

Tsushima Ocean Knife

In a commitment to sustainability, Musashi has embarked on a remarkable journey by introducing the Tsushima Ocean knife with a unique handle design.
Tsushima, Japan's westernmost island, faces a significant challenge with the accumulation of ocean waste from neighboring countries such as Korea and China.
After two years of dedicated efforts to develop a sustainable solution to combat ocean pollution, Musashi has found a way to repurpose Tsushima's marine debris.
This innovative approach allows us to craft vibrant and captivating Japanese knife handles, using the recycled materials to not only create eye-catching designs but also contribute to the greater good by addressing the issue of ocean waste.

Japanese Lacquer (Urushi)

Experience the exquisite fusion of nature and craftsmanship with Sumi Urushi handles.
Each handle is a testament to the artistry of the ages, meticulously crafted using the ancient Japanese Sumi Urushi lacquer technique, derived from the sap of the urushi tree.
This age-old tradition not only lends a captivating, lustrous finish to our knives but also ensures that every handle is a unique masterpiece.
Elevate your culinary journey with the warmth and beauty of Sumi Urushi handles, where every slice is a celebration of nature's elegance and human ingenuity.
