Begin your cutlery collection or add to it with the Global Classic 5-Piece Masuta Knife Block Set. This 4-slot wood block comes with the Global Classic 4-inch Santoku Paring Knife, 5.5-inch Vegetable Knife, 8.25-inch Carving Knife, and 8.5-inch Ceramic Sharpener.
The Santoku paring knife has a flat edge for greater contact between the knife and the cutting board for more efficient mincing. The vegetable knife slices and dices with push cuts. The carving knife slices large cuts of meat in a single stroke. The ceramic sharpener realigns knife blades between sharpenings. The block protects knife blades while safely storing cutlery.
The lightweight blades are made from CROMOVA 18 stainless steel. The blades are ice tempered and hardened for superior edge retention, with a convex edge that stays sharper longer. CROMOVA 18 stainless steel is proprietary to Global. It includes a higher percentage of carbon than Western knives for greater strength and durability. It also includes a higher percentage of chromium than Western knives for greater stain resistance. Vanadium offers durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum offers hardness and corrosion resistance. The ergonomic, stainless steel knife handles are filled with sand to ensure it is perfectly weighted and balanced. The signature dimple pattern offers a comfortable, slip-resistant grip.
The Global Classic collection has been manufactured in Japan since 1985. The original design from Komin Yamada has remained the same, thanks to its durability, quality, and unique construction.
