Global Knives

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. Global knives are now used by most top chefs all over the world; in fact it was Anthony Bourdain who famously implored his readers to replace all their kitchen knives with a single Global chef's knife. 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 Molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56-58 degrees which holds a razor sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.

Like most Japanese knives the blades of Global knives are thin and sharpened using a small - sometimes asymmetric - angle. This is what makes Japanese knives sharper than any other knives.

Another feature of Global knives is that the blades are sharpened all the way to the end. This makes it easy to maintain the edge on a sharpening stone
