    Knife makers in Okinawa

    Maybe ecchef would know more, but I'm in okinawa and there isn't much info on Okinawan knife makers / retailers that i can find. Does anyone know a good place to start looking? What makes it even harder is i'm a lefty.

    Scott, haven't found any local bladesmiths yet, but I've heard rumors of one's existence. There's a half-way decent place called Anchor Shoji that has some interesting stuff. http://okinawahai.com/2009/07/anchor...ply-store.html
