The first GLOBAL knives were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada whose goal 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 blades that utilize Molybdenum/vanadium steel, Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56-58. 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.
These knives have been highly recomended by professional chefs because of their exceptional cutting ability and weight balanced feel.
