Japanese Knife Imports is a Kitchen Knife Specially Store run by me, Jonathan Broida, and my wife, Sara Motomura-Broida. This business is a representation of our passion for Japanese culture, crafts, and artistic works. We believe strongly that for each person and each task, there is a knife that is the best fit. It is our goal to help our customers find these knives for themselves. We work closely with our makers and craftsmen to find the highest quality products from a variety of regions and styles across Japan. By dealing directly with the makers, we maintain a high level of understanding about our products, how to use them, care for them, and repair them. We are also able to maintain a consistently high level of products by hand-picking who we work with.

We are very happy to be working together with Nakaya Heiji. Nakaya Heiji’s knives (and other tools) are a representation of their deep understanding of the materials they work with, and their practical use in real-life situations. We have deep respect for their understanding of product design, forging, heat treating, sharpening, and finishing their products. Nakaya Heiji’s philosophy very closely resembles our own- the most important thing is to create a product that excels at its intended task.

We constantly strive to offer the highest level of service and are constantly learning more about the products we carry. From shopping to after-care, we want to make sure our customers are happy with the products and services you receive from us.

Thank you.

Jonathan Broida and Sara Motomura-Broida
