Global Knife Safety
Since the early days of man, knives have been treated alternatively as an invaluable tool, but also as a dangerous weapon of war. Despite thousands of years of development, including the discovery and invention of many new materials, the knife remains an essential part of the kitchen ‘armoury’ and there is little sign of any replacement in future. We, at Global, are dedicated to ensuring that knives are used and stored as safely and securely as possible.
There is a well-known maxim that ‘a sharp knife is a safe knife’. Many injuries result from blunt knives which don’t do their job.
We, at Global, offer a variety of sharpening solutions, including sharpening rods, pull-through sharpeners and whetstones, and encourage all users to keep their knives sharp at all times.
Most of our retail partners will offer a two year guarantee on Global knives to cover normal use. If you are concerned at all about your knives within this period, please refer back to where they were purchased.
Global Knives UK also offer an extended guarantee valid for up to 30 years from the date of purchase, subject to certain conditions including the payment of an administration fee for this facility.
We, at Global, encourage all users of our knives to practice and acquire good knife skills.
There are a number of courses dedicated to teaching knife skills but we would particularly recommend those offered by Cactus Kitchens in cooperation with Michel Roux Jr.
