We just sent our first knife to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil!
Having spend a year of exchange in Brazil more than 20 years ago this was an emotional moment for me. Much of the inspiration generated that allowed my colleague and I to start Koi Knives in the first place.
Whether the cook/chef in Brasil is making feijoada, moqueca or pao de queijo the Gyuto knife is now part of the preparation of the magnificent Brazilian cuisine :)
*Note there is a large population of Japanese or second generation Japanese in Brasil to this day. One of those that came from Japan hosted me when I did exchange in Brasil in 1997. So this is probably not the first japanese knife in Brasil :P
