Global Knives & Knife Sets
In 1985, the first GLOBAL knives were designed in Japan by Komin Yamada, whose job it was to develop a range of knives which were ideally new and revolutionary, marrying the best materials available with superior modern design ideas. He wanted to create a set of kitchen knives that would appeal to both professional and amateur chefs, be comfortable and easy to handle and satisfy their most challenging needs.
Today, whether you are looking for a whole set of knives in knife blocks or to select your own set from our loose knives, Matchbox is proud to house a range of Global knives and Global knife sets for you to choose. Global knives are perfect for every seasoned professional or home chef and made from the most premium high carbon stainless steel, which allows it to create some of the most professional high quality kitchen knives in Australia.
CROMOVA 18 stainless steel has been exclusively developed for use in GLOBAL knives and is hard enough for the knives to keep their sharp edge but soft enough so they can be easily sharpened. The high percentage of chromium in the knives enable their excellent stain resistance.
To maintain and get the correct balance, GLOBAL utilises a hollow handle which is filled with a small amount of sand instead of a tang and bolster as it's more precise. For that reason, Asian knives naturally do not have bolsters, as they serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening. The smooth contours of the knives ensure they are beautifully balanced, and their seamless stainless steel design & composition eliminates the possibility of having food and dirt trapped in its creases, providing you and your household ultimate health and hygiene.
The GLOBAL knife range now includes more than 50 different options, including cooks or chefs knives, paring knives, bread knives, and so many more. For any food preparation task, there is a professional knife for every function possible. We also house a range of Global knife sharpeners, knife guards, and other knife accessoriesto complement your set, kitchen, and home.
Each stainless steel product includes a limited lifetime warranty guaranteed. Find your perfect Global knife online or in-store today and enjoy FREE shipping on all orders over $69 online, Australia wide.
