Today, the 7th-generation owner, Misao Hirano, runs his venerable business from within the city’s famed Tsukiji wholesale fish market, where he personally sells his knives to customers—over 80% of them, professional cooks, chefs or butchers. In fact, Tsukiji Masamoto knives are only available in Japan at the Tsukiji shop and through the company’s official website.
