With more than 25 years of experience in selling Global knives, we individually selected each knife in this set to make it the perfect Global knife set. We call it the SUPER set. It is great for both professionals and for those who aspire to be professionals. This is the only Global set in which there are both standard and heavyweight Global knives. The heavyweight GF-33 8.25 Inch Chef's Knife can be used for cutting large cuts of meat and whole fish while the G-48 7 Inch Santoku can be used for smaller cuts of meat and fish. The heavyweight GF-31 can be used for boning everything form a whole pig to a chicken. You can put away your heavy European knives. This set has it all.

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.
A Truly Super Set

I have always wanted to own a set of professional level knives. I spent months researching snd searching. I wanted a variety of blades but was not interested in paying for steak knives.
Global was the obvious choice, and this set had everything I was looking for.
Delivery was exceptionally swift and came when promised.
Great tools for any kitchen!

I placed an order for a $800 knife set that needed to be in California within two days. The representative for the company was very helpful when I had questions and sent emails promptly with a tracking number so that I knew the order was shipped. The knife set was a gift and when received, was enjoyed not only by the recipient, but by the giver as well! Thanks for your prompt and efficient service. Thank you too for your kind customer support.
