What you'll do

This experience gives you the chance to witness the knife-forging process live in a knife maker’s workshop. We'll also visit a famous knife museum and get a hands-on demonstration of knife sharpening using Japanese whetstones. You'll also learn how to put the handle on your very own souvenir Santoku—Japanese kitchen knife—which will be engraved with Kanji inspired by your name.
