An excellent choice for the discerning home cook, this sleek award-winning cutlery from Japan is carefully balanced for exceptional precision, control and comfort. Our ten-piece set is indispensable for a host of tasks, from peeling vegetables to slicing meat. Stamped blades are made from exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion. Prominent 1/4" edges are visible to the naked eye and ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in impressive sharpness and edge retention. Stainless-steel handles are seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, these knives are lightweight yet perfectly balanced. Stainless-steel storage block's angled design helps protect the blades, and its nonslip rubber base anchors the block securely on a countertop. Block has slots for ten knives and a honing steel.

The best you can get
January 16, 2013
I purchased a Global starter set with six knives for my friend Christmas of 2011. I was skeptical at first as to why he would want these knives because I thought all knives were the same. After he got the set oh how wrong I was. This is by far the best knife set you could own. They are sharp so be careful! Of course it came with the knife block so I am know filling it with the rest of the collection. It made a believer out of me in thinking you have to spend a little money for quality. However you get much more in return for the price. All in all it's an in investment if you like to cook. I will never own a cheap knife set again. Oh did I mention I got me a set of Global as well lol
