    I posted some more photos on facebook today, but more importantly, i posted this on our website today...
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/notice-page

    Japanese Knife Imports will be closed from Thursday, March 27th for about a week as we move our store to a new location... please read below for more information on this.

    Japanese Knife Imports began as a website in 2010, practically operating from our bedroom and closet. Since that time, we have grown into a much larger company. In 2011, we opened our brick and mortar storefront in Venice, CA. It was a small space, but somehow worked for us well. We always wanted our store to feel less like a traditional retail establishment and more like walking into a friends house or living room. The small quarters proved to provide an intimate environment for us and our customers, and thanks to all of you, it turned out to be a great success. However, one of the downsides to a small space is that we quickly outgrew it in terms of our needs for display space, but more importantly, storage. In early 2013, we began looking for a larger location for our store. It took a while, but in August, we found such a place. While we would have loved to stay in or around the Venice area, we were unable to find a place that was both the right size and had parking. We did, however, find a spectacular place in a different part of town.

    Since the beginning of our business, we have always maintained an office in Beverly Hills. This is where we receive packages, among many other things (anyone who has used our mail-in sharpening service will know this). Our new store is much closer to our office in Beverly Hills. It also happens to be a bit closer to my family, which we hope will be helpful now that Kenzo is in our lives. In addition to being much bigger and having more parking than our current store, our new store will also feature an improved workshop for my sharpening and some other new things we will reveal as the new store opening gets closer.

    Our new store location is:

    Japanese Knife Imports
    8642 Wilshire Blvd.
    Beverly Hills, CA 90211

    We hope you'll come and visit our new store when it is finally open. Stay tuned for the most up to date information.

    -Jon

    I like the storefront -- it really sets the mood for Japanese knives and other wares. Can't wait to see what you and Sara come up with for the interior layout/ displays. Where is the nursery?

    We expect to be able to reopen the store location by Friday, April 11th. We are sorry this is taking longer than planned. We will begin shipping items bought online by Monday, April 7th.
