Online PR News – 28-September-2009 – – From very modest beginnings, Global has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional 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.
The two most innovative features of Global Knives are their edge and the way they are balanced. The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The majority of the Global Knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade, just like Western style knives. However, their edges are ground steeply to a point and to an acute angle. This is in contrast to Western or European knives that use a bevelled edge: the straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. Global Knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available: Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel called CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, designed exclusively for Global. This steel is hard enough for the knives to hold their acute cutting edge for longer, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen them.
To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and a bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. Firstly, it is far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Secondly, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening. Other unique features of Global Knives are their smooth contours and seamless, all stainless steel construction which eliminates food and dirt traps offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
