  • Industrial designer Komin Yamada designs most of Global's knives. Yamada has led the aesthetic at Global since the 1980s and is a coveted name in cutlery, where he consults, leads and designs on many noteworthy collaborations.
  • Individually hand-hammered knives feature edges that are 10% sharper than other knives when taken directly out of the box. This major achievement is verified by an internationally recognized standard for measuring sharpness.
  • Choose an 8-3/4 or 9-inch bread knife to enjoy the most versatility. This length is standard and cuts through even high-piled sandwiches. If you like using your bread knife for other foods, choose the slightly shorter blade for better dexterity.
