Description

As a place that disseminates Japanese food culture, the Tsukiji fish market attracts many people from both within and outside of Japan every day. Our store is in the Tsukiji Outer Market and originated from swordsmiths who served the Minamoto clan through the ages. In 1872, when the fish market was in Nihonbashi, we changed from swordsmithery to kitchen knife smithery and established our store. In 1962, with the relocation of the fish market to Tsukiji, we moved to Tsukiji as well. Over a long period of 145 years, Azuma Minamoto-no MASAHISA has progressed together with the history of the Tsukiji fish market. Since our foundation, we have continuously made our own efforts in research and development while at the same time following the traditional methods of swordsmiths. Through such efforts made by successive family heads along with our customers, our sashimi knife was developed, which is an incomparable knife with a 150-centimeter blade for slicing raw fish. Our unique manufacturing methods and reliable sharpening craftsmanship which we nurtured through strict practice allow us to offer kitchen knives that have won the favor of a variety of long-standing customers, from professional chefs to home cooks. We also offer services that meet a variety of customers’ needs, such as a made-to-order service and a name engraving service. We look forward to your visit.
