    Vintage Knives

    We see vintage knives discussed, praised, reworked, sold etc. But we never see any vintage Japanese knives discussed, praised, reworked, sold, etc. Why is that?

    To be honest, I think they are just harder to find. Especially, since most people hear are in NA.

    Here is some things found at the flea market in Japan and a little about it.

    the flea market Setagaya Boro-ichi (Setagaya Boro-ichi). Especially since this event is held twice a year for the first time - in December 15 th and 16 th, and the second time in January 15 th and 16 th. And the scale of the event is not any comparison with European counterparts. Flea Market in Japanese - is a whole area with a lot of streets are literally studded with all kinds of antique utensils, gastronomic delights and other attributes of this fair. According to statistics, the number of visitors per day ranges from 200,000 to 300,000 people. The history of this market is going to far in 1578, when Lord Udzhimasa Hojo (Ujimasa Hojo) established the first free market "cancer-ichi" in the area of ​​Setagaya.

    Of course, there is no such abundance of knife shops in the area of ​​Kappa-bashi, or in the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, but for the true nozhemana this place can be a real godsend. It is only here for the collapse of the old with some dolls you can find rare or antique Sheffield Nat Japanese knives. For fans of Japanese sharpening stones as it is generally a paradise on earth in all its manifestations

    Over the years some of the reasoning that has surfaced about the general rareity of vintage Japanese kitchen knives, WW2 scrap drives. Japan was strapped for resources and anything that could be spared was melted down.
