    It is the Japanes way of saying 'I may very well be the best, but I will not cause controversy or disharmony among the other makers by saying so'
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    a lot of the companies we know and love here are not well known in japan and are primarily geared towards foreign markets. Prestigious is a vague terms. If you want to know what most chefs are thinking about, its usually masamoto or aritsugu. If you want to know what chefs think are the best knives, it depends on the region you are in and which knifemaker that chef has a relationship with (some chefs love suisin, gesshin hide, nenohi, shigefusa, etc.). If you want to know what has the biggest bling factor and makes people think you have money, thats a whole other story.

    I hope this doesn't elicit a photo contest Unless it's knives, or food

    Kiya, like Aritsugu, seems big enough that you find it in some of the dept. stores.
