GLOBAL CAMP Black Series Release Announcement

Thank you for visiting YOSHIKIN website.

On Friday, July 19, 2024, we will release the new color “GLOBAL CAMP Black series” from “GLOBAL CAMP” only at our direct-operated stores (YOSHIKIN SHOP RoppongiOfficial Online Store*).
*Shipping is limited to domestic address in Japan.

The newly added GLOBAL CAMP Black series has two types; Utility Knife and Serrated Knife, that is unified in high brightness black color from the blade to the handle. The shape is the same with original GLOBAL CAMP series, but while retaining the ease of use and beauty of all stainless steel, the robust and solid impression that comes from black color will make your outdoor cooking experience even more special.

As the manufacturer developing the GLOBAL knife brand, we have always valued the natural shine of the silver color from well-polished stainless steel. However, now we are pursuing the possibility of new designs by adopting coloration on the blades.

Special feature of GLOBAL CAMP Black series

GLOBAL CAMP Black series knives use a processing technique called “oxidation coloring” to change the thickness of the stainless steel’s passive film, giving itself the black color.

The color produced by oxidation coloring has the characteristic of subtly changing depending on the condition of the stainless steel material and the viewing angle. Not just this each knife’s individuality fosters a sense of personal attachment, this technique also enhances weather and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for outdoor use.

In addition, this dyeing process is done without using paints or coloring agents. Since oxidation coloring is used in medical settings where safety for the human body is required, it is safe to use for cooking. Furthermore, it is environmentally friendly because it can be recycled, like other stainless steel products.
