私が重房の菜切り包丁を買ったのはこの店です。
吉沢利工

次の2つの理由から、この店をここで紹介する価値があると思います。
1.この店は重房の包丁をとても手ごろな値段で売っている。
2.この店は老舗の道具屋で、東京都渋谷区の道玄坂で明治時代から(100年以上?)この商売をしている。
追記: この店は明治43年(西暦1910年)創業なので、今年で創業99周年です。

住所: 東京都渋谷区道玄坂2-6-12
(JR渋谷駅から歩いて5分)

営業時間: 平日 8:00~19:00
日曜/祭日: 9:00~18:00
定休日: 第1第3日曜日

注: 私はこの店とは関係はありません。ただ、以前、工務店を営んでいた父がこの店の顧客の一人だったので、小さい時からこの店を知っています。この店が重房の包丁を扱っていると知ったのはつい最近のことです。それまでは、大工道具専門の店だと思っていました。

注意: この店に照会メールを送らないで下さい。英語で書かれた照会メールは受け付けていません。質問があれば、私のブログのこのエントリにコメントとして投稿して下さい。この店に照会メールを送っても、店ではそれを無視するか、または私のメールアドレスに転送します(そうするよう、頼んでおきました)。

**************************************************
The shop from which I bought the Shigefusa nakiri bocho was this one:
Yoshizawa Riko

I think that this shop deserves a mention here for the two reasons below.
1. This shop offers Shigefusa knives at very affordable prices.
2. This shop is a well-established tool shop, having been in this business since the Meiji period (for at least 100 years?) at Dogenzaka, Shibuya in Tokyo.
Edited to add: This shop was founded in the 43th year of Meiji (1910) and, therefore, has been in this business for 99 years this year.

Address: 2-6-12 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
(5-minute walk from JR Shibuya Station)

Business hours: 8:00 to 19:00 on weekdays
9:00 to 18:00 on Sundays and national holidays

Regular closing days: First and third Sundays

NOTE: I have no affiliation with this shop. It’s only that I have known this shop since a child because my father, who used to run a small construction company (called a koumuten in Japanese), was a customer of this shop. It’s only recently that I have learned that this shop deals in Shigefusa knives; I had assumed that this shop specialized in carpenter tools.

CAUTION: DO NOT SEND AN INQUIRY DIRECTLY TO THIS SHOP. The shop does not accept inquiries written in English. If you have an inquiry, post it as a comment to this entry of my blog. If you send them an inquiry, they will either ignore it or forward it to my email address, as I have asked them to.
