The Global paring knife is useful for peeling hard fruit and vegetables. The fine point can be used to remove eyes on potatoes. Razor sharp edges and a comfortable handle combine to make a very popular knife. This is just one knife from a large range of global knives.

Global knives were first made in Japan in 1985. The designer Komin Yamadi was asked to produce a range of new knives in a modern design. These new Global knives were to be revolutionary in design and to be manufactured from the best materials. The range of Global knives is now very large and has won numerous awards.
