    Suisin Event / Korin Renovation

    Hi everyone!
    Sorry I am been missing in action. Korin is currently under renovation and things have been super crazy (in my personal life too). We tore out the floor and put in new nice tile floors, so the wooden floor isn't raised and uneven anymore. We are also building a cat walk and adding more space above for more tableware and kitchenware.



    Even more exciting for knife enthusiasts, we are getting new knife cabinets soon!! (FINALLY. I hate those knife cabinets so much.) If you came/come to the Korin showroom you'll see that we only have knives on one side of the store. People keep asking me when renovations will be done... I have considered this:


    Because I'm really not sure. We were supposed to be done in April, but we clearly have a long way to go.

    Now on to news about our RIDICULOUS Suisin event...
    ...And when I say ridiculous... I mean RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME. I'm so excited about this event.

    Dates: June 14 to June 16
    Times: 2pm to 5pm


    I know many of you guys know Suisin, but here is an introduction for those who do not:

    In 1990, Junro Aoki realized his dream by establishing the Knife System Company and creating the Suisin brand collection. As the second son of the Aoki Knife Craft family, he was eager to step apart from his family to create his own cherished knife brand. He spent his youth learning his craft, the young and energetic knife craftsman dreamed of someday creating knives that would combine the traditional qualities of Sakai-style knife-crafting techniques with more modern designs. Since the beginning, Korin has worked closely with Knife Systems and we have helped one another bloom into the companies they are today. Before Korinís Knife Master Sugai became an apprentice of Japanís top sharpening Master Mizuyama, President Aoki taught Sugai how to sharpen knives for several years. Nowadays, Suisin brand knives are found in professional kitchens worldwide and are highly recognized for their work with renowned blacksmiths such as Keijiro Doi and Yoshikazu Ikeda. As Sugaiís original teacher and one of Korinís trusted companies, we are thrilled to announce that we will be celebrating Suisinís 25th anniversary this June. We hope you will join us for this grand anniversary to meet Knife Systemís founder and president for the companyís first event at Korin.

    To celebrate Suisin's 25th anniversary, Suisin have generously contributed to our event.

    Wow! I would actually fly out for this. Except I'm graduating from my grad program on the 14th haha! This is awesome though. It'd be the perfect time for me to buy a Hayate too. I think you should have an event in September instead.

    Korin has treated us well in the past. I believe it was for the 2008 ECG when Ms. Kawano opened the shop up to a bunch of KF folks who were in town for the ECG. We were given Sake and finger food. She even swapped Master Sugai's day off so he could be there on Friday to show us the downstairs shop and answer our questions. The show cases were unlocked for us to check out the goods. I believe were also given a 15% discount for that weekend

    My point is Korin always does a good job putting together nice events regardless of who's attending.
