    I plan to head to Coast around the end of next week for a few days fishing, but will likely make a detour into the San Francisco Bay Area for at least a day. So I'm thinking even there has to be some shops with a good selection of J knives. I read somewhere that Japan Woodworker closed their physical shop in Alameda which is too bad as they apparently had a great selection. 

    Can you all give me any leads to places between Sacramento and the S.F. Bay area to check out that have great customer service and knowledge of J knives?

    Not specifically in that straight-line corridor beween SAC and SF, but what about Perfect Edge in San Mateo?

    Here are 2 that you could check out.

    Bernal Cutlery

    593 Guerroro St

    San Francisco, CA 94110

    (415) 902-6531

    Town Cutler

    1005 Bush St

    San Francisco, CA 94109

    (415) 359-1519

    If you can only visit one, I'd recommend Bernal.  It was a pleasure to talk to the owner about Jknives.
