With this Global Katana cutlery set in your kitchen, you are assured of having the right knife at hand to fulfil your grandest culinary ambitions. Each knife has been chosen for its practicality and versatility and all knives come neatly housed in a stunning stainless steel and bamboo block.
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, be comfortable and easy to handle, and meet their most demanding requirements.
GLOBAL knives are made from the finest stainless steel material. The blades utilise CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56˚- 58˚ which holds a razor sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
Today, in the Samurai sword tradition, Japanese craftsmen are continuing to produce cutlery of the highest quality. Like the Samurai swords before them, each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand. The smooth contours and seamless construction eliminate food and dirt traps, offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
Just as their fine swords lent distinction to the Samurai, GLOBAL knives bring distinction to the chef, whether professional or amateur.
It is recommended that you wash Global knives by hand using dishwashing liquid and water. After washing, rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a towel. Global knives should not be put in the dishwasher. Doing so could damage the sharp edges if they should come into contact with other objects in the dishwasher. Also exposure to extreme heat and powerful detergents can be harmful to the cromova 18 high carbon stainless steel.
