Summary

Williams Sonoma's partnership with Global cutlery led to the development of Global Ukon, the perfect synthesis of Japan's knife-making heritage, modern design and superior performance. Details like a dual-surface handle, an ambidextrous thumb rest and a thicker blade with a noticeably sharper edge are indications of Ukon's technical innovation. Like all Global knives, the cutlery offers perfect balance and seamless construction. Five of the most frequently used knives make up this set, which includes a contemporary storage block.

  • Knife edges are 10% sharper out of the box based on internationally recognized C.A.T.R.A. testing.
  • Dual-surface handles have smooth and textured sides, representing the fusion of modern design and Global tradition.
  • Thicker blades provide added durability and strength without compromising performance.
  • Indentations on the santoku's blade edge reduce drag and minimize sticking.
  • Ergonomic handles and rounded spines ensure extra comfort and minimize fatigue.
  • Stamped blades are made of exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion.
  • Made in Japan exclusively for Williams Sonoma.

6-Piece Set includes:

  • 3 1/2" paring knife
  • 6" serrated utility knife
  • 7" hollow ground santoku
  • 8" chef's knife
  • 9" bread knife
  • 5-slot storage block

Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone or frozen food, as the blade can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Use the honing steel only when you feel the knife has lost some of its original sharpness, usually no sooner than six months after its first use. As you continue to use your Global knife, it will require more frequent honing. If you need to hone your knife more than once every two weeks, it is time to have it sharpened.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Sharpen serrated knife at home using a sharpener designed for a serrated blade, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

Free Knife Sharpening in Stores

Working with a sharp knife is safer, more effective and much less tiring than trying to cut and slice with a dull one. To ensure top performance, bring your favorite knife into your local store and one of our cutlery experts will give it a fresh, new edge using our precision equipment. The first knife is free; each additional knife is just $5.

Our stores also offer knife demonstrations to teach you the correct grip, positioning and basic knife techniques and can help you find the perfect cutlery for your needs – just ask a store associate for assistance.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern design and great function! We purchased this set after some research. The knives are extremely sharp and we also use the recommended ceramic sharpener to keep them that way. The knive block looks great in our modern kitchen and we put the knives in upside down to retain the edge sharpness. These knives are very well balanced and feel great in your hand as you use them. The single piece construction makes them a breeze to clean. We love them and feel they are a very good value if picked up on sale as we did on William & Sonoma's website. You cannot go wrong with this set whether you are an expert or novice!
