Glestain knives are popular among connoisseurs, due to their outstanding features.
A deep understanding of cut mechanics and high-grade materials, plus workmanship.
They are easily recognizable, thanks to special dimples grind, allowing to reduce the contact area of blade with cut products, and the thoughtful design of the handles, especially in professional series.
Pleasant balance and well-defined forms have turned so many buyers, who tried to cut with these knives into passionate fans of the brand.
Half a century of successful history of production, testing and implementation of improvements, allowed to create a unique style.
The President, Mr. Akira Honma, founded the company in 1971.
As a talented engineer, he focused on using advanced achievements in the field of science and technology to create cutlery products with maximum functionality.
Naturally, right after the appearance, the brand was not known to anyone.
Unusual design and rather high cost did not attract a large number of customers, who pay their attention primarily to appearance and price.
As a result, the management of Honma Science Co., Ltd., decided to establish contact directly with the cooks, and began to independently visit individual restaurants, hold numerous presentations in a narrow circle of employees, and organized a high-quality sharpening service.
Such devotion to their work caused a friendly response, from many culinary experts, who shared their impressions, advised what could be improved, and actually took part in the modifications carefully implemented by the factory craftsmans.
The reputation and popularity of the company, grew and strengthened, and the technology was constantly improved.
From procurement to finishing sharpening, a lot of labor-intensive processes are required that require specialized equipment.
For example, only heat treatment includes seven steps, carried out with care and attention to detail.
And to the final polishing of the cutting edge, only trained and selected specialists are allowed.
These are real masterpieces of knife craftsmanship, without decoration and pathos, quietly brilliant in hands of experienced followers of culinary art.
The case develops, as it was planned, based on demand from sophisticated connoisseurs, who know a lot about good things.
