Knife stores in NYC
I will be there next week. I will be going to Korin (again), Bowery Kitchen (again), and Cut Brooklyn (again). Where else is there to go for good cutlery?
The Broadway Panhandler (65 E. 8th St.) might have some stuff. They seem to always have a sale going.
Also, other sharp objects may be had at MiN (117 Crosby).
There is, allegedly, a Kikuichi showroom in "New York", and by that they mean 560 Sylvan Ave 3F, Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632.
There is a shop in Chelsea market that has some kikuichi and tojiro knives. Also, it's been a year or two but I remember going to the Japanese culinary center that had some nice stuff.
