$145.00 per person

Every knife is unique, each with a different profile. A good quality knife is one of the most important utensils for any experienced chef or humble home cook. Not only does it make cooking faster and easier, but a sharp knife also results in better looking and better tasting food.


Don’t let your blunt knives hold you back from achieving culinary greatness at home. Learn how to keep your knives sharp and ready for any cooking task at hand with our Knife Sensei workshop!


Bring along your own knife to this class and learn from the Japanese master, Osamu Miyamoto from YUUSHIN 結心 – Japanese Kitchen Knives & Stones, on the art of Knife Blacksmithing. Osamu has been practicing the craft of sharpening knives since he was 10 years old, and now 30 years later is sharing his wealth of knowledge and skill with us.

For the first hour of this class, Osamu will not only take you on a journey through his knowledge of blade constructions and materials, but also guide you through the art of sharpening your knife on a whetstone.


Afterwards, our Icon chefs will take over the kitchen to teach you how to use your perfectly sharpened knife to master the technique of precision Sashimi and vegetable cuts. You’ll then turn your cuts into delicious Salmon Nigiri and tasty Tempura Vegetables, which you will enjoy with a glass of Saké around our dining table.


For this class you will be required to bring along a kitchen knife from home for sharpening.


Due to the nature of this class, numbers are limited to 8 people so get in quick. This is a class you do not want to miss!
