    Searching on Rakuten and amazon japan a Japanese little lexicon can we put one together??

    As I said in another post, I was able to make much better use of Amazon and Japan once II did the following: I first used google to translate "chef's knife" into Japanese (it came out as 牛刀) , then I plugged it into the search box on Rakuten global and also on Amazon japan, magic ensued.

    It now strikes me that if we had a post that had the Japanese for things we might all be looking for on Amazon and Japan and Rakuten, it might prove useful. To start offf, here are some I have used in some of my more recent searches (no guarantees they are right but they gave good search :-) )

    Gyuto = 牛刀
    Misono = ミソノ
    Naniwa = ナニワ研磨工業
    Masahiro 正広

    It would be awesome if people could add other words they have used for searches on these sites..

    For example, what's the Kanji to search for a suji, a yanigiba, or a paring knife or for specific makers like Shigefusa .
