Kiya Knife?

hobbybaker | Feb 28, 2010 04:29 PM

Hi,
My husband is back from his business trip to Tokyo. He bought a knife there for me as a surprise. It is not a Japanese knife but a western style, a chef's knife. On its surface, there is a logo of edelweiss flower and engraved as "EDELWEISS KIYA" and "Boehler Stainless sub zero". On the back there is a number "86003ZB07". A small paper is enclosed in the box on which there are some explanations in Japanese and the website address. http://www.kiya-hamono.co.jp I checked it but there are not much.

Does anyone have the same type of knife from Kiya? I have a cheap Wusthof knife sharpener, which I bought at TJMaxx/Homegoods. As this is a stainless steel knife, I think I can just use the sharpener, or do I need to buy something elese to sharpen it? My other knives are cheap beginner knives, and honestly I generally do not know much about knives (although I feel I need to know more). I checked old threads and I think this is not a redundant topic. If so, could you tell me where I can check?

Thank you for your help in advance.
