Among Stockholm’s foodies, more and more are attempting to reproduce their favorite restaurant foods, and what they most adore is the hocho: The Japanese kitchen knife. Cleancut opened in May and has become a popular store offering a rich assortment of quality hocho made by craftsmen from Sakai, Tsubame, Echizen, and Echigo. Japanese knives are the key product at Cleancut, but they also deal in designer products made in Northern Europe. “Knives with nicked blades from cutting frozen chicken are often brought to us,” says owner Yoshinori Suzuki who undertakes polishing work. His clients include a wide range of people from Micheline Star chefs to housewives using knives from Ikea. He even gives polishing lessons. Proper tools are the secret to delicious food.
