Hello Community,

One of the most popular Japanese knife brands, Ginsu, hit the TV market in the late 1970s. Saying the knife "cuts through a nail, a tin can and a radiator hose and still slices a tomato paper thin," makers of the Ginsu knife used television to hawk their product, which still is selling strong today. While many feel a sense of nostalgia over the Ginsu, several other brands of Japanese knives also are popular. Global, Kershaw, Mac, Hattori, Kyocera, Chroma, Kasumi, Bunmei, Suisin and Misono all are popular makers of Japanese knives. Kyocera makes ceramic knives, which are made of zirconia, a substance almost as hard as diamonds, and increasing in popularity.


Thanks and Regards,
Henrik Popowski
