Global® Knives Story

Our story started a thousand years ago. Japanese swordsmiths developed the high art of sword making to provide strong, sharp blades for the Samurai, the feared warrior caste...

Today, in the Samurai sword tradition, Japanese craftsmen are continuing to produce cutlery of the highest quality...

The first GLOBAL knives were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada whose remit 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. They are comfortable, easy to handle, and meet their most demanding requirements.
