I had my kitchen knife sharpened at KIKUHIDE Cutlery. I was really surprised to find how well it cuts! With a sharp kitchen knife, now I am very happy when cooking.
I also bought a sickle at KIKUHIDE to cut weeds in my garden, which cuts well, too. I am sure that the quality of cutlery at KIKUHIDE is totally different from that in home improvement stores.
