About Global Classic knives

Anyone who’s serious about cooking would do well to consider investing in at least one of these pieces, which are thought by many to be the ultimate in knives. Over a thousand years ago, Japanese swordsmen mastered the art of sword-making to arm their much-feared Samurai warriors. Continuing in this tradition today, skilled craftsmen still make each knife by hand, and take pride in upholding the exacting quality for which Global have become renowned.

Each knife is made from a single piece of CROMOVA 18, a specifically blended, high carbon hand-forged stainless steel that’s exclusive to Global and is justly famed for its durability. Then, the blades are ice-tempered, hardened and honed to a longer-lasting, razor-sharp Asian- or Japanese-angled edge.

Beautifully balanced, these knives, with their distinctive, hygienically seamless appearance, are favoured by many high-ranking chefs in prestigious hotels and restaurants around the world.

"23 years of great service and still going strong!"

star star star star star

I was given my cook's knife as a present about 23 years ago, quite shocked to see the price, but it is worth every penny. The chef Rachel Khoo uses one on her Paris kitchen series I noticed - her top tip with knives- when scraping chopped veg from a board, use the back, not the cutting blade. I use one of the cheap plastic handled with crossed metal bits sharpenersBeing disabled now as well as a bit Dyspraxic, I wear a knitted Butcher's glove on my left hand when sharpening, for safety. It can safely cut through the most solid of neeps, pumpkins, etc and is perfect for finely shredding cabbage

"the best all round knife"

Been using global knives for over ten years now and have built up a good collection, but this is my most used and favourite. Beautifully balanced and very sharp on first purchase. Invest in the ceramic rod or some good whetstones (not Lakeland's). Get into the habit of a few strokes on a the ceramic honing rod every time you use the knife and it will stay very sharp. Expensive but worth it.

support_agent A note from the team

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. When sharpening knives like this we would recommend seeking advise from the manufacture, to keep your knives in tip top condition.

You will not believe the difference owning as set of these makes, they are sharp I mean REALLY sharp. They are beautifully balanced and a pleasure to work with. Plus they stay sharp for a really long time. You need to invest in the special wet sharpening stones and then you will have knives to dream of for ever. They are expensive but I am adding to my collection at birthdays and Christmases -one day I hope to have the full set. If you can afford them just buy them- you won't be disappointed
