My hometown is Sanjo, Niigata, Japan. I learn knife sharpening in my hometown. Sanjo is village of traditional blacksmith. We are proud of our craftsmanship and 400 years history. All of my knives are made in Sanjo, Japan.
I believe our works are highest grade in the world.

If you want to learn anything about Japanese knives and knife sharpening, visit the workshop at Hiroshi! We had little to no knowledge about the sharpening process. When we left we found the courage to continue to practice this skill at home. He had so much knowledge and answered all of our questions, along with great stories about his hometown. First you will learn about the knives, the sharpening process and then you can practice it yourself. Great workshop! He also has beautiful knives for sale!

Great class! I was the only guest and felt very welcomed. I was early and Hiroshi-san was already downstairs awaiting my arrival. After climbing a couple flights of stairs, we arrived at his cosy studio. He unravelled his collection of knives and started talking about the basics of sharpening and types of knives. I thoroughly enjoyed the demonstration and hands on segment. We chatted for quite awhile after the experience and Hiroshi-san prepared delicious tea and a snack too. Didn't purchase any knives at the end as I don't have checked baggage back home, but it was overall a good experience!

Many thanks to Heroshi for a very fascinating master class! We plunged into a fairy-tale world, into a culture that was previously unknown to us and we are sincerely glad that we have become part of this magic. The master does a great job sincerely, which causes respect! All the best to you, Heroshi!

Hiroshi is a master of his craft. As a world traveling chef I feel I found something special with Hiroshi apart from actually going to Japan. Wet stone sharpening intimated me before this session with Hiroshi and I now feel at least confident enough to start sharpening on my own. His knives are beautiful and much lower in cost than you would pay almost anywhere. I purchased two lovely knives that will be with me forever. Thank you Hiroshi!
