Full Sheet Sushi Nori Kan Seaweed Container Black This is what many Sushi Chefs use to store their precious Nori seaweed. Considering it's made of thin tin, some may wonder why it costs US$50? The reason is this:

How do you sharpen your knife? A lot of past sushi class participants asked me.
I am trained to use traditional whetstones. I use both medium grade and finishing stones like these. King Deluxe 2000 (medium grade)
Just like most of the Sushi techniques, knife sharpening technique is very simple to demonstrate, but it's very difficult to master (or, takes some practice).
