History: Global knives originated in Japan in the 1980s, and they are a product of Yoshikin, a Japanese cutlery company founded in 1954. Yoshikin collaborated with designer Komin Yamada to create the iconic Global knife design that we know today. The Global brand quickly gained recognition for its innovative approach to knife-making, incorporating modern materials and construction techniques while preserving traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

Unique Features: Global knives are distinctive in several ways:

  1. One-Piece Construction: Most Global knives are crafted from a single piece of high-quality stainless steel, which extends from the blade through the handle. This unique design eliminates the risk of food particles getting trapped in seams or joints, making them highly hygienic and easy to clean.

  2. Razor-Sharp Blades: Global knives are renowned for their incredibly sharp and finely-honed edges. They are hand-finished by skilled craftsmen using a proprietary method that results in superior sharpness and long-lasting cutting performance.

  3. Balanced and Lightweight: Global knives are well-known for their exceptional balance and lightweight feel. The hollow handle is filled with a precise amount of sand, which contributes to the perfect balance and a comfortable grip during extended use.

  4. Distinctive Design: The sleek and modern design of Global knives is instantly recognizable. The all-steel construction, dimpled handle, and unique shape of the blade are not only aesthetically appealing but also functional. The dimples help reduce friction and prevent food from sticking to the blade.

  5. Versatility: Global offers a wide range of knife styles to suit various culinary tasks, from chef's knives and paring knives to specialized blades for filleting, slicing, and more. This versatility makes them a popular choice for both professional chefs and home cooks.

  6. Durability: Global knives are known for their exceptional durability, thanks to the use of high-quality stainless steel. With proper care, these knives can maintain their sharpness and performance for many years.

  7. Innovative Materials: Global knives often incorporate innovative materials like CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, which combines chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium for excellent corrosion resistance and edge retention.
