    Korin broke me into Japanese knives too with a Tojiro DP gyuto (Shuns don't count). Things haven't been the same since.

    I am in CT and haven't been there yet! Definetly interested in the sharpening demo, but I work 3rd shift and have some weird hours!

    Just wanted to add my two cents and belatedly say "welcome." Thanks for your response to my post about unexpected surprises out of the box and the occasional problem with Nenox's shrinking scales. As a fellow New Yorker, I've been to the store many times and only wish I'd discovered it sooner. The staff has always been gracious--and were always especially nice to my dachshund, who accompanied me more loyally than my wife! You may remember her (the dog, that is).

    Are you asking if Globals count as Japanese knives? I'm going to assume you are... but no Globals aren't Japanese knives. They are really light though. Personally, the handles are a little too flat.

    Speaking of brain fart. I have no idea were I was going with that. I know Globals are a Japanese company, they were my "gateway" knives. Maybe... uch... who knows.
