Phoenix Knife House is a knife connoisseur's dream. This cutlery company specializes in Japanese knives and carries many blades that the layman probably can't even pronounce. PKH carries a variety of knives from Masahiro, the foremost manufacturer of primo kitchen knives in Japan, along with Fujiwara kanefusa (namesake kitchen knives made by a family known for sword-making for the past 500 years), and Kikuichi knives (made by another family known for sword-making — specifically, samurai swords). Phoenix Knife House also carries "Western-style" Japanese kitchen knives from Misono (many made of silver and nickel, with beautiful wooden handles) and Sugimoto knives, high-quality carbon steel and chromium pieces used by discerning chefs. If you're looking for something cheap, this isn't the place to go (knives run anywhere from $75 to several hundred dollars each), but if you're looking for kitchen knives that will impress your guests at dinner parties, Phoenix Knife House has what you need.
