Global knives are possibly the most well known Japanese knives in the world. Made in Japan from CROMOVA18, a specially designed mixture of the finest high quality carbon, molybdenum, vanadium & chromium. With a Rockwell hardness of 56-58, these knives are significantly harder steel than traditional European knives. Along with this, a thinner blade & narrower angle (15 degrees) result in finer, more precise knife work, hard enough so the sharpness lasts longer, yet soft enough to sharpen with ease on the ceramic water sharpener, whetstone or ceramic steel.
