In 1985, the first GLOBAL knives were designed in Japan by Komin Yamada, whose job it was to develop a range of knives that were new and revolutionary. 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, we have you covered. Matchbox is proud to house a range of Global knives and Global knife sets for you to choose. Our expert team is also here to help, including providing you tips on How to Sharpen Global Knives.
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.
If you're looking for a quality knife, Global is crafted just for you. First introduced in 1985 by Yoshikin Manufacturing, the innovative designs of Global knives quickly took the culinary world by storm. Devised as a blend of Italian design, German durability and Japanese precision, Global knives are crafted from single pieces of CROMOVA 18 stainless steel.
CROMOVA 18 stainless steel has been exclusively developed for use in GLOBAL knives from their carving knife, chef knife, to the smallest utility knife. It is hard enough for the knives to keep their sharp edge but soft enough so they can be easily sharpened. Like the best-selling Ikasu 7 Piece Knife Block Set, 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.
From the bread knife to the boning knife, each are tempered twice for a superior blade with a sharp and resilient edge. Global knives incorporate easy-to-use lightweight construction and perfectly weighted handles featuring their signature dimple-pattern grips for superior balance and control. No matter which knife set you choose, Global guarantees all of their products for life!
Many ask "Are Global knives worth it?" while we believe the quality answers. Even in the smallest paring knife, the smooth contours of Global knives ensure they are beautifully balanced. Their seamless stainless steel design & composition eliminates the possibility of having food and dirt trapped in its creases.
