Super Customer Service

Bought a knife on their Website a few months back. One of my friend used it to cut an entire piglet in half = 2-3 big chips on the blade...

A fun store featuring knives from more than 25 Japanese knifemakers, including the Masakage line, designed in Calgary and hand-forged in Japan. Also offers knife sharpening and "Cut Like a Chef" classes. If you can play the bass guitar hanging on their wall, you get 10 per cent off.
