Global is part of the Japan-based Master Cutlery Corporation family of brands; established in 1985, Master Cutlery is focused on the design, manufacture and distribution of metal flatware, cutlery and kitchenware. The first Global knives were designed in 1985 with the intent of crafting a revolutionary range of knives which would appeal to the professional and amateur chef alike. Made of the finest stainless steel material, the knives hold a razor-sharp edge and resist rust, stains and corrosion. The range of cutlery products includes steak knives, fillet knives, sashimi knives, cheese knives, bread knives, bagel knives, prep knives, utility knives and open stock cutlery; kitchen shears; carving sets; knife sharpeners and whetstones; spatulas, turners and more. Just as their fine swords lent distinction to the Samurai, Global knives bring distinction to the professional and the amateur chef.
