Getting A Japanese Chef's Knife For The Motorhome

For the past few weeks, I've been purchasing gear and equipment for exclusive use in the new motorhome. This is so that I won't have to pack things up whenever we're to leave on a camping trip. I figured I'd buy everything now so I won't have to bother doing so later on.

Some of which are kitchenware including a cutting board, dish drainer, pots, pans and other things. Some items, I've had already in my camping gear boxes and are still usable. Others, unfortunately, were rendered useless due to rust or some gunk that leaked on them.

The latest was the need to order a chef's knife. I ordered it from the Kamaasa Shoten knife shop in Kappabashi, Tokyo. Last year, I bought a chef's knife for Jessica while I was in Japan. The original intent was get the same knife for the motorhome since we liked the knife so much, but Kamaasa was out of them and they don't expect a new shipment until four months from now.

Fortunately, they presented me with a couple of alternatives and I decided to go with one of them. While I was at it, I decided to buy another for my daughter.

This is it:

It is a V10SP Chef Knife Hammered 210 (in case you want to get one for yourself).

I was advised this morning that the two chef's knives have been shipped.

If you are in the market for fine cutlery or just a chef's knife, I recommend Kamaasa Shoten. When I was in Kappabashi last year, I saw several cutlery shops. But most were empty, except for one or two people. Kamaasa Shoten had a crowd inside their store. That told me that I came to the right place.
