Global knives are crafted by hand in Yoshikin in Niigata, Japan. Probably the most high profile brand of the Japanese knives they started from modest beginnings founded by Komin Yamada in 1985.
Global knives are made from CROMOVA 18 high carbon stainless steel developed exclusively for the knife range which has the unique features of a blade hard enough to stay keep its shape for years whilst being soft enough to sharpen with ease. CRO stands for Chromium and 18 signifies the 18 percent of chromium within the stainless steel. High chromium content contributes to a stain resistant blade.
The unique features of a Global Knife are:
The blade of a global knife is ground to a steep acute edge. The patented blade will stay sharper for longer and has an accuracy and precision far superior of other brands.
The handle of a Global knife has a precise balance achieved by their own unique method of sand being enclosed in the hollow middle of the handle. This gives the chef perfect control and precision for improving their accuracy, skill and speed.
Seamless construction and smooth contours of the stainless steel knife ensures no food/dirt traps for the ultimate hygiene.
