GLOBAL-IST is a brand comprised of four Western style knives, two Japanese style knives, and a knife sharpener, sold exclusively in Japan. This series is for the people who has passion to cook various foods, from Japanese cuisine to Western cuisine. The concept of this brand is the ideal knives for “chef-at-home,” someone who loves to cook like professional at home. Having this idea in center, we examined the details of each item such as blade length, handle, and weight, that will complement each other. Especially the edge with new style made it possible to make clean cut that will keep nutrition stay fresh. In addition, we developed the exclusive sharpener for the Western style knives. We are now proudly presenting to our customers, this new brand with clarity in line up.
