Made in Japan.

Global knives are manufacted by Yoshikin in Niigata Japan. They were designed by Komin Yamada in 1985 who's mandate was to develop a range of knives that were truly new and revolutionary in the knife world. The two most innovative features about Global knives are their edge and the way they are balanced. The majority of Global knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade straight to a point instead of the western style of having a bevel. This makes for a dramatically sharper knife and also stays sharper longer. To balance the knives, Global uses a hollow handle filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance for each knife. Other unique features are the smooth contours and seamless, all stainless steel construction. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 stainless steel. The CRO stands for chromium and the 18 is the percentage of chromium in the steel. The MO and VA stand for molybdenum and vanadium. These two elements give a knife excellent edge retention.
