GLOBAL has become one of the success stories. Handcrafted at the Yoshikin factory in Niigata – Japan, and to exacting standards, GLOBAL has attracted much praise over the years and has received numerous awards.
The first GLOBAL knives were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada, whose aim was to develop a range of knives that was truly new and revolutionary, taking advantage of the best available materials and the most modern design concepts.
The GLOBAL knife range has been developed over many years and has over 50 different options, providing a specialist knife for every function in food preparation.
Crafted in the tradition of Japanese samurai swords, GLOBAL has developed a range of cookware using the best available materials and the latest manufacturing techniques that appeal to both the professional chef and gourmet home cooks. GLOBAL knives are made from the finest stainless steel, their blades use CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56°-58°, which maintains a sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
Each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand, and the smooth contours and seamless construction offer safety and hygiene.
The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the GLOBAL edge is truly its signature. Most GLOBAL knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade and are made from the finest stainless steel: CROMOVA 18, ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56°-58°, so they maintain a sharp edge longer. than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
