Global knives have been sold in South Africa for many years and enjoy the reputation of being the knives of choice for many professional and aspiring South African chefs alike, including the South African National Culinary team which has achieved overall success as World Culinary Champions in the past at the Erfurt Clinary Olympics.
These premium chefs knives and accessories are also perfectly suited for ordinary household use and their sharpness is easily maintained with a variety of special sharpening accessories available including the patented Mino Sharp system which is perfect for regular maintenance.

Master Cutlery also endorses and offers the Japanese-made Benriner brand mandolins and speciality hand-operated turning slicers and food appliances which are also leaders in their category.
Japanese sword smiths perfected the art of sword making a thousand years ago to provide the feared warrior caste, the Samurai, with strong sharp blades.
Continuing the Samurai sword tradition today, Japanese craftsmen are still producing knives with blades of the highest quality.
Global knives are manufactured by Yoshikin in Japan from the finest CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, which is ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56°-58°, and remains razor sharp longer than any other steel used in knife manufacture and resists rust, stains and corrosion.
The knives are perfectly weighted like the Samurai swords before them to ensure perfect balance in the hand. The perfect balance is achieved by filling the handle, which is hollow, with just the right amount of a very fine special sand, which meaning the counterbalance weight will re-position itself as the knife moves.
The safe-smooth contours and seamless construction eliminates food and dirt traps and are hygienic.
Global Knives bring distinction to the chef, whether professional or amateur just as the find swords did for the Samurai
