Known primarily for their Japanese knives, prices can be an "eye-opener," but Korin only stocks "the best." Clearance items offer good deals year round.
NY Magazine says of the knives: "In addition to being crafted from performance-oriented combinations of high-carbon steel and alloys, many knives are equally exquisite as art."
Korin also has a knife-sharpening service, and here's a bonus: they'll work on knives other than the kind they sell, so even if you haven't invested in fancy Japanese blades, you can still get close their edge.
