This set contains the following Global Items:
- G-2 Global 8 Inch Chef's Knife
- GS-61 Global 6.25 Inch Serrated Bagel/Sandwich Knife
- GS-38 Global 3.5 Inch Paring Knife
Each of these items can be viewed individually in the images above.
Global knives are unique because of their edge and the way they are balanced. The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The majority of the Global knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade like western style knives. However, their edges are ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and a bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. First, it is a far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Second, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening.
Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen the knives. The CRO in CROMOVA 18 stands for chromium and the 18 is the percentage of chromium in the steel. This high percentage of chromium contributes to Global's good stain resistance.

Don’t waste your time adding any other knives. These three will accomplish all your kitchen tasks. Very sharp and unlike other knives, these are very easy to sharpen and get hair shaving edge out of them.

While looking to order additional Global knives, I came upon the Sointu website. I noticed their prices were significantly less than other sites. It seemed too good to be true, but I checked them out and decided to give them a try. I purchased a 3 piece knife set and received a free knife sharpener. The knives were ‘official’ Global knives. They were sharp and well balanced. I’m very happy I found this new site to buy knives. The delivery was quick and the packaging secure.
