Toru in Takefu
Toru Tamura san has left the building, but his bass guitar lives on in our shop! Tamura san was living in Canada to experience something new and to practice his English language skills. He was living in Vancouver, but moved to Calgary to take the job at our shop. We were super lucky to have him at the shop for almost a year. Sharpening knives every day, sometimes for hours a day, he realized that he wanted to become a professional knife sharpener and knife maker. Now apprenticing under Kato san in Takefu, Toru is living the dream. We will always miss his legendary mega sharp knives and strange humour. I hope he still plays with his band Peach Legs now and again.
So, the bass is always here - at Knifewear Calgary - if you wanna step up and rock out on Toru's guitar, but sadly, anyone who plays "Smoke on the Water" will have to pay more for their knives.
BTW we also have a Theremin at Knifewear Calgary. If you can squeeze a tune out of that you will earn some serious street cred with us.
Knifewear Kelowna - No bass, sorry - but we do have an electric guitar and an amp if ya feel like ROCKIN' OUT
I wouldn’t trust a knife shop without a guitar or Theremin.
Toru, we miss you, but you're always here in the form of your bass guitar.
