From modest beginnings Global Knives has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional kitchen knives in the world. Still crafted by hand in Yoshikin’s factory in Niigata, Japan, GLOBAL knives are manufactured to extremely high and exacting standards. GLOBAL has attracted much acclaim over the years and received numerous awards.

GLOBAL knives have been hand crafted in Japan using the same traditions as they used back 1985 and are developed using the best raw materials available. Like the Samurai swords before them, each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand.

Global is growing

Global’s award-winning Classic knife range has remained one of the most popular and successful professional kitchen knives in the industry for over 35 years. Knives from the Classic range are an excellent choice for the both the professional chef and home cook.
