Q. Can I bring a new knife that I bought at another store to you for its initial sharpening?

A. We will conduct initial sharpening on the spot for knives purchased from us as a part of our service, but we cannot do this for items from other stores, not even for a fee.

The handle of a Japanese kitchen knife can be replaced, but we may not be able to conduct those repairs depending on the level of rust.

Q. Please tell me the how many days it takes to replace a knife handle.

A. We place a great detail of importance on the durability of the repair, and we send it to be done by a specialist, so we ask for around 10 days.
