How to buy

how to buy - Aritsugu

The knives are shown from within a display case, so customers are unable to feel them in their hands. If you explain to a member of staff what type of knife you are interested in and for what purpose, they will bring out a selection recommended for your needs. However, customers can feel free to touch other kitchen accessories.

- Shopping Tips -
We can engrave customers’ names on knives. The staff would also be very pleased to provide information on how to look after them. Knives cannot be carried into the cabin when travelling by plane. Please store them in a suitcase and pass them to the airline as checked-in baggage.
