Global knives harness the history, culture and superior quality of the Japanese swordsmiths from over a thousand years ago that made the famous, strong and sharp Samurai swords. Today these skills and traditions have been passed on to the craftsmen who create the famous Global knives. Established in 1985, Global aimed to develop a collection of knives made from the very best materials available along with the most modern design concepts. All Global knives are made from the finest quality CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, are ice tempered and are resistant to rust, stains and corrosion. Since 1985 Global knives have kept the same design, a testament to their superior quality.
