Description


Set includes a Global Ukon 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Serrated Utility Knife and 8-inch Chef's Knife. Global Ukon, the perfect synthesis of Japan's knife-making heritage, modern design and superior performance. Details such as a dual-surface handle, ambidextrous thumb rest and a thicker blade with a noticeably sharper edge are indications of Global Ukon's technical innovation.

Global knives contain two innovative features, their edge and the way they are balanced. The most important detail of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. Global knives are sharpened or ground steeply to a point, and to an acute angle while resisting rust, stains and corrosion. The straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge on a Global knife is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter of an inch or more up from the tip of the knife.

From its modest inception, Global has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional kitchen knives in the world. Still crafted by hand in Yoshikin's factory in Niigata, Japan, Global knives are manufactured to extremely high and exacting standards. Global has attracted much acclaim over the years and received numerous awards. A thousand years ago, Japanese sword-smiths developed the high art of sword making to provide strong, sharp blades for the Samurai, the feared warrior caste. Like the Samurai swords before them, each knife is carefully weighted to ensure perfect balance in the hand. Global knives have been hand crafted in Japan using the same traditions and developed using the best raw materials available.
