Everyday I'm so happy to be associated with Suehiro. It is a small company with only about 18 employees that export all over the world. There main concern is to develop the best products possible. Everything else comes second. When I contacted them about distribution in the Nordic countries they had to take out a map to find the country of Sweden. Being a very small company as well I'm thrilled that Suehiro allows us to offer their products here in the Nordic regions. A perfect match for Hide™ knives both hands on and obsessive about the quality of their products.
