About us


Welcome to Zahocho Knives Tokyo!

We're Fred and Akiko, a husband-and-wife team with a deep love for cooking and Japanese knives. Our journey began with a shared passion for food – Fred as a sushi chef and Akiko with her lifelong interest in cooking. When our plans to open a Japanese restaurant were altered by the pandemic, we embraced a new dream: to bring high-quality, authentic Japanese kitchen knives to enthusiasts of all levels.

Founded in 2019, Zahocho Knives Tokyo represents more than just a knife store. The "za" in our name symbolizes a strong foundation, reflecting our commitment to providing the perfect base for both your culinary adventures and your appreciation of fine craftsmanship. Our range is thoughtfully curated to cater to everyone from beginners and home cooks to professional chefs and serious enthusiasts.

We take pride in offering a selection that includes some of the finest knives from Japan. Whether you are taking your first steps in the kitchen, mastering your craft in a professional setting, or seeking unique pieces to add to your collection, our knives are here to support your culinary journey and your passion for Japanese knife collection.
