Global Knives



Our Global knife business is like a first child to Sointu USA.  Global was our first foray into Japanese cutlery, and we distributed Global exclusively throughout the US for 23 years, so there is a certain fondness there.   This relationship to Global gives us a tremendous advantage with regard to pricing.  Our prices are the lowest and we guarantee them to be.


Perfectly balanced and razor sharp, Global knives feature two of the greatest innovations in kitchen knives since high carbon stainless steel was introduced.   Global has made the tang obsolete by using a filled hollow handle to replace the tang for balancing.  Global also tapers their knife edges straight to the tip rather than beveling them like other manufacturers.  Obviously, some knives, like serrated knives and sashimi knives, do not call for such a taper, but in most cases Global uses a straight taper.
