JAPANESE KNIFE
In Japanese language, knife is called as Hocho or Hamono, and there are various shapes and lengths and thickness for what you would like to cut. For instance, to cut soba noodle, it has to be Soba-Bocho (Soba-Hocho). Your thought might reach to Tsukiji Fish Market, but Kappabashi Dougugai (Kappabashi Tool Street) in Asakusa has following knife shops to choose from. If you would like to deal direct with Hocho Maker (Producer), Fujitora Industory has Tojiro . Ceramics? Kyocera founded in Kyoto is highly recommended.
Yamaya
Kamata (nothing but knives)
Kanesoh

Kiya Hamono has shops in Mitsukoshimae and Tamagawa, highly recommended. One of the best knife shop in Tokyo.
By the way, Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction area also has nice high quality knife shops. Unlike the auction (now only first 120 people allowed), knife shops and sushi shops are open for everyone. Soon, it will be re-located in Toyosu. Open/Close calender and some reports are available at this page.
