The first Global knife was designed in Japan in 1985. The combination of a durable steel, a unique design and an extremely sharp edge was what caused interest in the Globalkniven to quickly grow. First the knife took hold with the professional chefs, then the home cooks followed. Today, Global is one of the world's most popular knife brands and the company continues to deliver new, innovative models of kitchen knives. In Sweden, Global has for many years worked closely with, among others, the Swedish Chef National Team and Chef of the Year.
