GLOBAL kitchen knives were born in 1985 in Japan and debuted in European markets by being first displayed in Ambiente (Messe Frankfurt) in 1988. It started with only 12 items for the first year. No one-piece stainless steel kitchen knives existed in the world market at the time. So, we are convinced that we were the pioneer in introducing a new concept of kitchen knives out of one-piece stainless steel in the world.
Since then we have displayed new products under the GLOBAL brand in Ambiente every year, through which the fame of GLOBAL has spread worldwide year by year, and at the same time we have increased the range of products to reach more than 100 items today.
We appoint more than 35 firms as our distributors to cover more than 85 countries. It is our imperative to attend Ambiente every year, where we can have a general dealers’ meeting with our distributors to decide the direction of GLOBAL products for further development. We call our distributors the GLOBAL Family.
