Global Knives were introduced to the market by Komin Yamada, a legendary Japanese product designer. He was given a brief to create a range of knives that were truly innovative and different, using the best available manufacturing methods and machinery with the latest stainless steel materials. He created a series of kitchen knives which brought the art of Japanese knife making to Western consumers and chefs. Global Knives use their proprietary steel, Chromova18 in all their knives, a high carbon steel with molybdenum and vanadium mix achieving a hardness rating of 56-58 HRC. This offers knives that are able to hold a edge for a long time whilst being easy to resharpen. Global uniquely uses covex edges on their blade edges. These edges wear less much more slowly than flat grinds and is the real reason why Global knives stay sharp for an exceptionally long time.
All Global ranges use a stainless steel handle, a feature that has become the brand's trademark. Global knives are famous the world over for their outstanding design, performance and ease of use in both home and professional settings.
