Upgrade Your Kitchen with Global Classic Knives

Give your kitchen a culinary refresh with Global Classic knives. These knives are some of the finest a home chef can get. Transform your approach to prep, dining and entertaining when you have a beautiful set of knives as your everyday tools. Global classics are made of exceptionally-strong stainless steel and designed to professional standards, but they're balanced and substantial enough to be your in-home favorites.

Forged in Japan

All Global knives are made in Japan by highly skilled craftspeople who dedicate their careers to the fine arts of blade creation and sharpening, handle balance and the aesthetics of a powerful knife.

  • These knives are seamless. The blade and handle are one with the division in functionality called out by a signature contrast dot work.
  • This dot work offers a visual cue for holding your knife while also improving your grip so that you can maintain full control while working on fine slices, even chops or efficient mincing.
  • Any need for a bolster in the middle is overcome by the balance inherent in the knives' construction.
  • If you choose a Global Classic knife set, look to the shears for more proof of Japanese skill.

A Los Angeles Celebrity Chef Favorite

The Classic line is a favorite of award-winning chef, author and TV personality Ludo Lefebvre. The famed chef uses these knives at his popular Los Angeles eateries. His restaurants include Trois Familia, Petit Trois, Trois Mec and Ludo Bird.  While these knives are purely Japanese in form and function, you can get an idea of their caliber knowing they're a staple at some of LA's favorite places.

High Style Stainless Steel

The reason popular celebrity chefs like Lefebvre and others love Global Classic knives is their stellar design.

  • Stainless steel blades and handles are seamless for balance and grip.
  • Blades are made from Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, an exceptionally hard steel.
  • The steel is then ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion even after years of regular use.
  • The edges of the blades are ground to straight to a point as opposed to beveling as is done with many knives, even Eastern ones.
  • This grinding creates a 1/4 inch edge that you can see for a dramatic indication of these knives' power.

Streamline Your Chef's Prep Tasks

These lightweight knives are often lauded for their feel in your hand. One of the major differences between professional quality knives and those designed just for in-home use is weight.

A lighter knife can require more skill to use. Global knives are light but substantial enough to wield, thanks to a combination of balance and grip texture. The ground blade gives you an advantage over a beveled edge that also makes it easier to pick up pro-level dexterity.

As you continue to improve in your handling of essential and specialty kitchen knives, you'll see why pros love these.
