Every time i've worked/trained in Japan, chefs always have these awesome aprons. It turns out they are from various Sake companies all over Japan. We picked up a few for sale at JKI. Each one is unique and from a different Sake brewery... we have stuff from all across Japan. Supplies are limited and prices range from $50-70. Shoot us an e-mail (Jon@JapaneseKnifeImports) or give us a call (310)399-0300 if you're interested.

Hi Jon,

Very cool stuff. Your wife looks adorable in those aprons!

Would you guys be able to translate mine for me? I received this as a gift.

Thanks

I'm not sure I'm cool enough to wear one of these, but they all look sweet (the model helps!).

Only here can the word "bad-ass" be used to describe the word "apron." (Just kidding. Google search yielded several hits, lol.)

Only here can the word "bad-ass" be used to accurately describe the word "apron."

Fixed that for ya.
The aprons look great, Jon.

the gist of it is "study", "kindness first" (on the note of customer service)

Second and second to last (translation?) are my favorites.

I feel like not owning a single single-bevel knife and/or never having visited Japan disqualifies me from wearing one of these.

second one is Dawn (as in breaking dawn) and the second to last is Evil King (as in the devil)

My sister formerly was a flight attendant for Northwest Airlines and flew to Japan regularly. She brought me a couple of these aprons, and one was hanging over the window in my front door. One day a Japanese fellow came to the door recruiting for a church that he worked at and asked me if I had a Japanese wife! While he was there I asked him what the aprons kanji said and he told me it was an advert for a vinegar company!
