The AXIS Building came into being in 1981 in Roppongi, Tokyo. We have famous knives’ shop Yoshikin in 2nd floor, well known for “GLOBAL” brand.
YOSHIDA METAL INDUSTRY CO.,LTD. (Yoshikin) was founded in 1954 as a manufacturer of European cooking implements in the Tsubame-Sanjo Area of Niigata Prefecture.
With the introduction of the GLOBAL line in 1983, Yoshikin led the world in the manufacture and marketing of all stainless steel knives of one-piece construction (integrated handle and blade).
Ever since, this concept, and the excellent cutting abilities that these knives possess, have attracted great attention worldwide, winning the highest praise from the most demanding users and launching a revolution that established a new standard for all stainless steel, one-piece knife construction.
Pursuing new technologies and possibilities, Yoshikin engages in new product development with the enthusiastic desire to deliver high-quality products to customers worldwide.
