From the manufacturer
Designed By Legendary Designer Komin Yamada
"When I work with a cold material such as stainless steel I look to nature for my inspiration. Using the organic shapes of nature I am able to create harmony between the person and the utensil."
Razor Sharp Edge
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, just like Western style knives. However, their edges are ground steeply to a point as illustrated in Fig. 1, and to an acute angle. This is in contrast to Western or European knives that use a beveled edge, Fig. 2. The straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge on a GLOBAL knife is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter of an inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
Cromova 18 Stainless Steel
CROMOVA 18 is a steel, with a special mixture of molybdenum, vanadium and chromium. The exact combination is our trade secret, but the steel is made to be hard enough so that the knives retain their sharpness, yet soft enough to sharpen with a whetstone. The high chromium content gives the knives excellent resistance to rust and staining.
Functional Design Steeped In Tradition
From its modest inception, GLOBAL has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional kitchen knives in the world. Still crafted by hand in Yoshikin’s factory in Niigata, Japan, GLOBAL knives are manufactured to extremely high and exacting standards. GLOBAL has attracted much acclaim over the years and received numerous awards.
Used By Professional Chefs
Used by home and professional chefs like Ludo LeFebvre, Global knives are lightweight, yet razor sharp that help reduce hand fatigue. Global knives retain their edge longer than any other major brand on the market

Global 3 Piece Kitchen Knife Starter Set. Set comprises of 8" chef's knife, 5.25" utility knife and 3.5" paring knife (G2, GS3 and GS38). Loved by professional chefs around the world, Global knives are an excellent choice for the serious home cook. The thin and razor sharp Global blade allows the cook to cleanly slice through foods, preserving the integrity of the ingredient and maximizing its flavor. The majority of Global knives are ground to a straight point rather than the western style of beveling the edge. To balance their knives Global uses a hollow handle that is filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. The handle has its own unique darkened dimples for a non-slip grip. Because the knives are very light weight they reduce hand fatigue. Global knives have a smooth contour and seamless, all stainless construction that eliminates food and dirt traps. Global knifes are forged in Japan from CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, a blend of 18 percent chromium for good stain resistance plus molybdenum and vanadium which gives excellent edge retention

Previously, I have two knives got rusted after only three days use. I filed replacement and got new knives. So far, the knives are fine and have no rusted.
I will give two more stars.
I now purchase these 3-piece starter sets to give as wedding gifts to couples who were raised using cheap knifes, and every time they come back to tell me how fabulous the knifes are and how it has made time in the kitchen much more enjoyable.
The knifes are very light, well balanced and SHARP! I also loved them and now it's hard to use regular knife even right after sharpening. I used to struggle with cutting off some fat from meat, now it's piece of cake.
If someone thinks about buying I recommend to purchase also Global Ceramic Whetstone for sharpening to keep knifes in perfect condition. Sharpening steel should be avoided (to abrasive for such fine knifes (note from booklet that came with the set).
Also it is better to keep such knifes in a knife block. I used my old one, but actually think about magnetic knife rack you can place on the wall, pretty cool idea (more knifes and accessories in the booklet).
Global knifes are hygienic thanks to smooth contours and seamless construction (no dirts traps). To keep it sharp the best is to wash by hand and immediately dry with the towel.
Great, great purchase!
