        What's wrong with Epicurean Edge? I can't imagine there is a place with a better selection of "pro" Japanese knives. It's nearly a fetish there.

    2. Try Seattle Cutlery or Sur la Table both in the Pike Place Market

      1. Uwajimaya has Japanese chef's knives.

        City Kitchens is another good place to check. They have some plus a great selection of knives in general.

          I agree with City Kitchens on Fourth Avenue, knows. It's a great store. Sur La Table used to be really good but they are now owned by a Middle East investment firm, so I've stopped going there.

        2. Uwajimaya in the International District is a huge Asian supermarket with a large selection of knives.

            Years ago I bought a nakiri at Uwajimaya, but it is more of a Japanese home cook knife than a professional one - stainless steel and light, and one of my favorites.

            U is a general grocery, with Japanese roots. It has a 'gift wares' section with knives and other Japanese products, but I don't think it specializes in knives. But with stores like 99Ranch and HMart up my way, I haven't been to U in some time.
