Only hours after flying in from Japan back in November, Mino was busy at work at our new showroom in Great Portland Street, SANTOKU. Customers there enjoyed his knife sharpening demonstration and latest news on what is happening at the Global knife factory in Tsubame. A few days later, it was on to the Good Food show!

Global had its usual prominent stand at the Good Food Show at the NEC, Birmingham late November. This has always represented an ideal showcase for the Global and our other Japanese knife brands in front of many thousands of Professional Chefs, Food writers and keen amateur cooks. Of course, Mino was there as usual, advising visitors on how to look after their knives and keeping them sharp. He was joined on the Friday by our good friend Michel Roux Jr.
