The first GLOBAL knives were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada whose remit was to develop a range of knives which was truly new and revolutionary, harnessing the best materials available and the most modern design concepts. With an almost unlimited budget he was to fashion a series of kitchen knives which would appeal to the professional and amateur chef alike, be comfortable and easy to handle, and meet their most demanding requirements.
GLOBAL knives are made from the finest stainless steel material. The blades utilize CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56Â°-58Â°which holds a razor sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
Like the Samurai swords before them, each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand. The smooth contours and seamless construction eliminate food and dirt traps, offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene. Just as their fine swords lent distinction to the Samurai, GLOBAL knives bring distinction to the chef, whether professional or amateur.
From fairly modest beginnings, the GLOBAL knife range has now been developed to comprise more than 50 different options, providing a specialist knife for every function imaginable in food preparation.
