Had a wonderful conversation with Mr. Bjorn Heiberg owner of Tower Knives Osaka.

I was overwhelmed by his generous flow of information and understanding of Japanese kitchen knives.

Two words to highlight the totality of what I learned from the owner of this amazing shop



I was educated with better understanding of the purpose and functionality of Japanese wabōchō.

I felt inspired to the importance of having an excellent kitchen knife as essential to serving out your best dish to your loved ones in the family.

Although the shop sells high quality Japanese wabōchō, the educational aspect brought forth the hidden good values of the sharpness and craftsmanship of kitchen knives worth passing on to the next generation.
