First designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada in Niigata, Japan.
Unique lightweight construction: two halves of the handle are manufactured hollow then filled with just enough sand to achieve perfect weight and balance. Unique concave blade shape sharpened straight to a point rather than beveled for long lasting razor sharpness.
Global knives are made from the finest stainless steel material. The blade is constructed from Cromova 18 stainless steel. Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell 56 – 58 which holds a razor sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
Like samurai swords each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand. The smooth contours and seamless construction eliminate food and dirt traps, making these knives the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
Global knives are favoured today by high ranking chefs in the most prestigious hotels and restaurants and are featured regularly on television cooking shows.
