    Knives in Miami

    A friend is travelling to Miami. I'm introducing him into the world of Japanese knives and stones and recommended to buy one knife -a gyuto- and one stone -may be a Bester 1200, to begin.
    Can somebody point me to a knife vendor in Miami? Thanks in advance.

    Absolutely nothing in this god forsaken town. The only place I know to buy japanese knives is from this guy that drives around in a truck on Miami Beach, and he is overpriced by at least 3 fold.

    Cheers

    An internet cafe.



    Just kidding. I don't live there, but here in Dallas-Fort Worth, we are equally lacking in decent cutlery. We even have a giant(for a knife store) knife shop called HOUSE OF BLADES, and they sell Shun and some cheap run-of-the-mill-no-name stuff from Sakai.

    I don't like to go to Dallas. But I'll check it out sometime. Thanks!

    Funny, the sushi bar I worked at bought from True World on a monthly basis(cause they deliver on odd days). I never thought they'd have a storefront.
