The Global knife is a good, simple and versatile tool. This small knife is designed primarily for peeling vegetables. It remains a great product for those who are looking for a small knife of good quality, without spending too much money on it. High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and the handle of non-slip full stainless steel.
Global knives made a great introduction to the world of Japanese knives and are a staple of the professional chef tool kit. They are easy to take care of, are on the cheaper price-end as far as Japanese knives go and can be brought to a pretty sharp edge. Their one-piece design is also highly sanitary, as no food stuff will stay stuck between a knife's parts.
Global Knives are manufactured by Yoshikin, in Niigata, Japan. In 1983, Komin Yamada's ideas for knives with a beautiful design combined with an excellent shape took form, when he united his force with Yoshida Metal Industry CO., who was at the time already established for making western ''all stainless steel one-piece structure kitchen knives''. The Global knives are since then appreciated by professionals and home cooks alike.
