Department stores usually carry a good selection of kitchen knives, usually a mix of brands like Henckels (not Japanese I know) and Global along with more traditional styled Japanese brands.

There are also a number of cutlery vendors around Tsukiji that are pretty interesting:


Or check out Kappabashi, the restaurant supply district:

There is also a good knife shop in Asakusa.

It's on Kaminarimon Dori(North side), about 2 blocks west of Nakamise on the corner of one of the streets(Chinyoko Dori, or the next street along, I think)

It has a good selection of nice knives, including folded steel knives.

We bought a fantastic knife at Tsukiji Market. In the restaurant area inside the market at the end of one of the alleys, closer to the bus area. The guy spent 20 mins sharpening it for us before he would sell it: we thought it was already lethal! He was really helpful, with minimal Japanese on our behalf and a little English on his: we plan on buying another next trip.
