PostSubject: GLOBAL Knives   Tue Apr 13, 2010 4:57 pm

Global (often written in all capitalized letters as "GLOBAL") is a brand of cutlery products made by Yoshikin of Japan. Their selection of knives are known for their distinctive one piece, molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel design.

Global was founded by Minoru Tsuchida in Japan in 1985.

Compared to conventional European knives such as J. A. Henckels or Wusthof, Global knives are made from a significantly harder alloy of steel, use a thinner blade thickness, and can be sharpened to a more acute angle. This produces an extremely sharp knife which keeps its edge longer and allows for more accurate work. Global recommends sharpening with a whetstone or ceramic tool rather than an electrical grinder.

Global knives are renowned for their surprisingly light weight and balance. They are easily recognised by their distinctive appearance, the handle and blade being one continuous piece of metal, and having black indentations present on the handle and on one model of their storage block.

Over the past decade the Global line has rapidly introduced many new highly specialized knife designs, including a tomato knife and a crab/lobster knife. They also make eating utensils.
