About this workshop:

With a simple tool and a bit of knowledge, anyone can sharpen their own knives. The Japanese sword is the origin of all Japanese edged tools. It is forged by fusing soft iron and steel, making it thin, strong and incredibly sharp. That never-failing sharpness is one of the characteristics of a Japanese blade. Mr.Miyawaki, the professional knife sharpening master will sharpen your knife and give you a lecture on this craft. See the difference in your cooking and crafting results using knives that you sharpened yourself. It will put a smile on your face!
*Bring one of your own knives to the workshop.
