Introducing the Global Ukon Series - a collection of high quality, Cromova18 Stainless Steel knives inspired by Japanese legend. The name 'UKON' has many positive connotations, Global's favourite use of the word lies in the expression 'Tachibana No Ukon' referring to the Mandarin Tree that was symbolically planted on the right-hand side of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto. It was said to balance the Cherry Blossom Tree on the left-hand side, known as the 'Sakura No Sakon'. Together they replaced the Samurai Guards who had until then protected the Emperor, but who were deemed no longer necessary during times of peace.
