25 years ago, Japanese metal works company Yoshikin set out to redefine the professional cutlery market with the launch of http://globalknives.uk.com” target=”_blank”>GLOBAL, the first collection of knives in the world to have a fully integrated blade and handle.  Today, it not only counts legions of professional chefs and cooks as devotees, but fans from an unlikely source – the design community, who appreciate the GLOBAL’s simple aesthetics and functionality.

As commemoration of GLOBAL’s 25th annivarsery, Yoshikin along with http://yoshidakaban.com” target=”_blank”>Yoshida & Co., maker of http://yoshidakaban.com” target=”_blank”>PORTER bags, created a special merchandise – a cutlery case and tote bag set.  The cutlery case, which is lined with reinforced vinyl coating to prevent accidental punctures, has billets set for 3 knives and a cutting board.  While the tote bag is spacious enough to accomodate the cutlery case along with other tools of cuisine.  The tote also comes with a special metallic tag marking the the special 25th annviersary edition.

There are 2 versions of the GLOBAL 25th Annivarsery Collection available for purchase.  A stand alone version, which only includes the knive case and tote bag, will retail for JP¥ 34,650 (~US $326).  A deluxe version, which in addition to the knive case and tote, includes a cutting board plus a special 25th anniversary 3-knive kit, will retail for JP¥  49,350 (~US$ 464).  Limited to 250 units worldwide(100 stand alone version, 150 deluxe version), and only available through Yoshikin Flagship Store in Ropponggi district of Tokyo
