Repair of knives
Most of the chipping can be repaired by re-sharpening the blade. We offer a fee-based knife sharpening service. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us using the inquiry form. Blades can chip by cutting hard ingredients such as bones, seeds or frozen food, dropping and mishandling, or stabbing into hard cutting boards.
We also accept repairs on knives purchased from other stores. Please refer to our knife sharpening service for details.
Repair of kitchen utensils
Please get in touch using the inquiry form. Availability and cost of repair depends on the type and condition of the product.

Gift wrapping

We offer a fee-based gift wrapping at JPY660 per set (tax included). To request a gift wrapping, please contact us using the inquiry form.
What it looks like
Our products will be wrapped in a cloth bag, either in a drawstring style with a ribbon or in a box style with a crossed ribbon. The wrapping style cannot be specified because it depends on the size of products. We can wrap multiple products in one bag as long as all the products fit in one bag. To request a gift wrapping, please contact us using the inquiry form.


For online orders, we offer a free engraving service for knives only. Engraving options are displayed on the product page for each knife. Please select the desired engraving option, enter text and add the knife to cart. Engraving for products other than knives is only available at our physical store at Kappabashi, Tokyo.
