-- As we have discussed before, The Sushi Knife Store (http://www.thesushiknifestore.com)
carries quality handmade Japanese knives you can use in the kitchen while preparing sushi and other fine Japanese cuisines are paramount to your success in your cooking endeavors. We stress the need to have sharp and high-quality Japanese knives to avoid damaging the ingredients that you are working with in the kitchen! Even Japanese knives that are not completely sharp will damage a delicate fillet of Ahi Tuna, we do not use Bluefin Tuna as they are coming dangerously close to extinction due to overfishing beginning in the 1970s. I recommend that no matter what your skill level is you should buy the highest quality Japanese chef knife that you can afford to buy! If you take your endeavors in the kitchen seriously at all purchasing a higher quality knife will pay off big time in the long run. If you buy a cheaper knife you may wind up regretting it! On a side note, it is advisable to purchase individual knives rather than knife sets to avoid buying knives that you won't use enough to justify the purchase of the set.
