Today Global knives have earned their place in the professional and hobby kitchens.They've taken their spot between the European style knives with proud. Global knives have signature features that set this brand apart from others.
The original design of Komin Yamada was registered by Yoshikin in 1985. It's revolutionary designed handle took the market as a storm. Several Food Agencies recommend Global knives for professional use due to it's hygienic design. It was the first knife to be made out of one piece stainless steel.
Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel called CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel and this material has been designed exclusively for Global knives. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to hold the steep, acute cutting edge and keep their edge for a long time...but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen them.The majority of the Global knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade, just like Western style knives. However, their edges are ground steeply to a point and to an acute angle(15-17°). This is in contrast to Western or European knives that use a bevelled angle(30°). The straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer.
