but you can try Meidi-ya at Liang Court - they have a housewares section.

Probably best to try a few places, like Isetan (corner of Scotts & Orchard - it's the only one with a household section) and Takashimaya B1.

I'll be at Meidi-Ya later on (my every day routine) and will check to see if they have any sushi knives...

Have you checked out the ceramic knives made by Kyocera (yes, the printer/photocopier company)? Might be a good alternative to steel.

You can also try the basement of Tangs as well, they have a large household department across the street from Isetan.

Would Kai knives suit? I use them for sushi and they work fine for me. Let me know if you want a supplier.

Give me another day to check at Meidi-Ya, went to Great World City for a buffet and ended up eating looooads of sushi, so no more raw fish for me tonight. :)

Are you talking the real sushi knives? which are a real pain in the butt to maintain, hand wash only and constant oiling to prevent rusting.

Nothing at Meidi-Ya, but quite a selection in Takashimaya B1 - both sushi knives (a number of Japanese manufacturers to choose from, though I've no idea which the good ones are unless the price says it all...) and ceramic ones too.

Check them out as well as Tangs and Isetan (since they're all in close proximity anyway), between those stores will you definitely find what you're looking for.

I own a ceramic knife but I am not impressed by it. Maybe its because I didn't pay $500 for a knife.

Was it a Kyocera one? I've only tried these and they're as sharp as a light-saber...

And I'm pretty sure I got 2 knives in a bundle with something else for $199.
