For a limited time, we have a special offer to encourage you to upgrade your kitchen knives to Tamahagane.  The 8 Inch Chef Knives in the Pro, SAN and SAN Tsubame ranges are all specially priced at up to 36% off.  In addition, if you purchase $100 or more of Tamahagne knives, you will receive a $20 gift coupon toward the purchase your next Tamahagane knife.  If you schedule your purchases wisely, you could get a $20 coupon toward each Tamahagane knife that you purchase.


It has always been our policy to include free shipping with a purchase of an Global 8 inch Chef’s Knife.  With the new price of $81.95 on the 8 inch Global G-2, it only follows that we now are offering free shipping for any purchase of $80 or more for any one or more items at Sointu USA.

We have only a handful of products less than $80, so to reach this threshold is fairly easy.  If you find yourself below $80, try adding one of our popular MinoSharp sharpening tools to your shopping cart or consider buying a gift for a friend or loved one.  If you have ever cooked at a friend’s house, chances are they could use a good knife.
