Yoshikin’s Global cutleries, sets and sharpners
Tsubame-sanjo area is located at the center of Niigata Prefecture. The area where it has heavy snow in winter is famous for an industry, cutlery.
One of the popular brand “Tojiro” is the product of the place. But Tsubame-sanjo has a best Japanese kitchen knife “Global”.
Today, the people in some dozens of the countries love the cutleries of Yoshikin (Yoshida Metal Industry).
In 1954, Yoshikin started in the traditional cutlery area Tsubame-sanjo. The sharpness and usability of their knives attract people around the world. And the beautiful design also is one of the charms.
Why not Global knives?
Cromova 18 material
One of the materials of the knives is cromova steel. It keeps the sharpness longer. The craftsmen burn the cromova materials with more than 1,000℃ and immediately cool down over and over. So the blades are so strong and sharp. But the unique material needs its original sharpner to regain the sharpness.
Since the knives are made of the only cromova, it has no joint. A joint of the knife often leaves the water. And that increase the gems. The single material knives keep away the bacteria from developing. In other words, the knives are really sanitary.
The product designer Yamada Komin created the appearance of the knives. His design of the doted handle is the signature pattern. But the handle is not just seeming. The dods make your palm closely attached to the handle.

Santoku knife is almost same as the western knife (gyuto). If you want more usability than G-2, I recommend G-48. The air pockets help prevent sticking as food falls away from the blade.
If you often cook the vegetable, to shred finely or cut hard things, the vegetable knife is best. Actually, the blade is so strong and broad. So it is also best for the cooking beginner.
It is the knife for those who cut a raw meat or fish. As the blade is long and flexible, you can easily slice the sticky foods.
When you clear the bones and cut the meat, G-21 would be best for you. The unique shape of the blade helps you to cut easily.
