So I am going to Japan for a cooking event. I will be there for about 5-6 days and while I am traveling and seeing a lot my time will be completely devoted to the event. Saying that means I wont have much time to check out knives. But it does beg the question....

What knives should I bring with me?

You're gonna be cooking? And if so, what? Interesting question... I guess you'd want to bring something nice and Japanese for cred and then bring some custom stuff they might not really have access to, as well? How many are you gonna take?

i am traveling through Japan so I am not carrying much on me, just the basics, chef knife, slicer, paring, boning/fish knife maybe. I do not know what exactly I will be cooking yet, it is a big dinner with a bunch of other chefs and we each do a course.

I would bring whatever US made blades you can. Japanes chefs would probably love to see that.
