Beautiful shots there. I know I'm supposed to be drooling over the knives, but the beautiful pottery in the "snacks" shot is what keeps me coming back to the thread. Mind if I ask about the utensils? Can't quite make out what they're made from, and if they were done in house or acquired.

Yeah the pottery is nice, but what are the snacks?

the toothpicks are made by a japanese company... those kind of things are kind of commonplace.

The snacks were satsuma imo yokan.

The texture is more similar to quince paste. It was really good. :doublethumbsup:

I thought satsuma was more like a tangerine. Either way those look tasty. Also wouldn't mind knowing where to get some of those little skewers :biggrin:

Wow.

What is the engraving? A dragon?

Nice photograph (in addition to the knife itself).

I looked at the knife above (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/6151-As-i-wander-around-the-store-with-my-camera?p=154852&viewfull=1#post154852), and clicked on the link (http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/gesshin-1/gesshin-ittetsu/gesshin-ittetsu-300mm-blue-2-suminagashi-yanagiba-with-desert-ironwood-western-handle.html#) below it, and for whatever reason I didn't put two and two together that they are one and the same knife. The engraving on the knife as pictured on the website isn't as clear, and looked to me more like a dragon (or something) than kanji.

it does kinda look like a dragon doesn't it
