    I know nothing, but my understanding is that dropping in is frowned upon (I believe they feel it is rude) at most shops. Either way I'm sure you will get some great advice/tips, hope you have a...

    Custom Heiji? They run a tad long so you would need to specify an exact length, but his semi-stainless is good stuff.

    What a great thread!

    I'm with Panda, the performance of J-knives overall (in comparable price range) is much better than their North American counterparts.

    I definitely preferred the Kochi, but to each his own. Quality of fit and finish on Kochi is superior, and I happen to prefer the steel (I had the V-2) as well as the geometry. I think the Kochi is a...

    Wildboar is spot on, a few more gyutos (I'd also add a cleaver to the mix just for fun).

    What knife do you actually want? Unless it is a Takeda then just return the knife. I am curious that Takeda would repair rather than just replace. Maybe they are all ground like yours?

    Buy them a decent stainless and sharpen it twice a year for them. They'll be happy and you'll have something fun to do during your visit.
