Global designed this hard-sided folding knife case specifically for Global knives, so don’t expect a perfect fit if you own a random assortment of prep knives. If you’ve already gone Global, this practical case offers safe transport and temporary storage for 21 of your favorites plus a few important odds and ends.
What’s different about this case? Construction is solid — Global built the case from strong 600 Denier nylon canvas with double stitched and riveted straps to support handle, shoulder strap, and buckles. Flexible side panels do a good job of protecting knives but flex enough to accomodate that occasional extra item you can’t leave behind. Buckle straps also adjust and compress the case for loads of different volumes. That keeps items inside the bag from rattling around.
Twenty-one individual pockets in the main compartment include elasticized retention panels so knives won’t slip out of place. An interior panel provides another barrier between the layers of blades when the case folds, and instead of closing this panel with Velcro — never more than a temporary solution — the security panel of the Global knife case zips shut.
The case provides a few small pockets away from the knives where chefs can store important kitchen gadgets like meat thermometers, spoons, and pens. A few business card slots are also included, but for the most part, this Global case is all about transporting Global knives safely. Shift between the briefcase-style grip and the padded shoulder strap to ease the load.
For a good case with expanded storage, see the Wusthof Knife Suitcase.
