Product of the Month: Global Knives – A Brand NEW Series – The Global Ni

Behind every great chef is a good set of knives. And there’s no better knives than Global.

Thirty years ago, a young Japanese designer called Komin Yamada was given a mission to develop a range of knives that was truly new and revolutionary, using the best materials available as well as the latest manufacturing techniques.

Thirty years on, not only was his mission a success but the knives he designed quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, and the best kitchen knives to buy on the market.

Global Knives are outstanding in the kitchen due to their razor sharp blade. The knife’s seamless design and dots on the handle is recognised by millions of food lovers and chefs all over the world and this is evidently the reason why the brand has a cabinet full of awards.

One of the biggest fans of Global knives is Michel Roux Jnr who said: “I really like the look and the feel of the knives.” And he believes in the brand so much that he has even lent his name to a range of Global knives.

Since its inception in 1985, Global has taken great steps to enhance the quality and performance of the product and has continuously expanded its range of classic knives, as well as bring out a new series called Global SAI which is equally as successful as the original Global range.

And this year they introduced a brand new series – the Global Ni.

GN-007 GN Series GLOBAL NI Santoku Knife

The Global Ni is an updated design by Komin Yamada, who focussed on developing a knife with the professional chef in mind.  This fresh new alternative series has a higher specification and performance. It has ergonomic handles and oriental style blades which delivers a more precise cut.

The first 10 Global Ni knives are owned by the judges of the Roux Scholarship, who, like the knives are rulers in the food industry. Albert Roux said: “This knife is unbelievably fantastic. It holds very well in the hand and is extremely well balanced.”

Now Global is launching a competition to celebrate the launch of the eagerly awaited James Bond film, Spectre, giving you the chance to win a Global Ni GN- 007.
