• About Us

    Superior Knife, LLC, with roots dating back to 1905, is a knife sharpening business and major supplier of quality commercial and food service equipment throughout greater Chicagoland. We service all food establishments from large chains to family owned restaurants. In addition to carrying a complete line of quality restaurant small wares and supplies, we supply food ingredients such as spices, marinades, BBQ rubs and sauces.

    Grandfathers, Gaudenzio and Giuseppe Cozzini, who were cousins, came to America together in the early 1900s from Giustino, a small town in the Trento region of Italy, surrounded by the Dolomites mountain range. Both pursued their dreams of starting a knife sharpening business, first from a push cart, then a horse drawn wagon, and then from the back of a van.

    In the late 1950s, they opened their first workshops in Chicago and continued to grow and build their businesses, earning the respect and trust from hundreds of customers. As their families grew, their sons joined the businesses to form two strong reputable companies that serviced the Midwest region.

    In October 2018, cousins Ivo and Robert Cozzini combined talents to carry forward the hard work and dedication of their forefathers.

    “Superior Knife is committed to providing the highest quality supplies and services to food establishments. Now in our third generation, let us prove how our quality, service and dependability will benefit your food service needs.”
