    Pronouncing Knife Brands

    Jon did that great video on pronouncing different knife types a while back, which I liked, but can someone tell me how to pronounce these brand names correctly?

    Glestain
    Suisin

    I have heard 'Suisin' pronounced a couple of different ways recently. I confess ignorance on this one, but I bet there are a lot of brands and knife names that we mispronounce. Personally, I think I need an immersion course at the Broida household.

    Yeah, Jon is amazing with pronunciation. At the ECG he was correcting me every time I opened my mouth.









    And I was speaking English.

    SOY-seen is a close enough approximation, but the actual pronunciation is more like SOOEE-seen, with the EE being very brief.

    "Sui" is pronounced the same as the "sui" in "suiton" heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sN2CeynIdQ

    I'm guessing Glestain may be French but I stopped learning it in high school so I can't help there.

    Wow, I was somewhat close. I've always said "Soo-ee-sin".

    I just say Glestain just how it looks--rhymes with "less-pain".
