This cutlery store founded in 1792 first made its name among the shoguns of that era for its precision perfect blades and slicing instruments. These days the inventory encompasses a comprehensive selection of Japanese and European modern steel and titanium tools, making this a must-stop for serious and aspiring chefs. Specialty items here include the Fugu knife and the elongated Takohiki “exclusively” for octopus. For those who do not cook, pick up a pair of Kiya’s ultra-precise nail clippers.
