In 1985 the creative visionary, Komin Yamada, designed a new concept of Kitchen Knife for Japanese Cutlery Manufacturer Yoshikin. The result was a revolutionary series of knives, with stainless steel handles and extremely sharp cutting edges, made from the best materials available and the latest manufacturing techniques. Branded as Global to indicate the will to make them available all over the world, nowadays, there is hardly a professional chef or hobby cook who is not familiar with the Global brand.
