Loved by professional chefs around the world, Global knives are an excellent choice for the serious home cook. The thin and razor sharp Global blade allows the cook to cleanly slice through foods, preserving the integrity of the ingredient and maximizing its flavor. The majority of Global knives are ground to a straight point rather than the western style of beveling the edge. To balance their knives Global uses a hollow handle that is filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. The handle has its own unique darkened dimples for a non-slip grip. Because the knives are very light weight they reduce hand fatigue. Global knives have a smooth contour and seamless, all stainless construction that eliminates food and dirt traps. Global knifes are forged in Japan from CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, a blend of 18 percent chromium for good stain resistance plus molybdenum and vanadium which gives excellent edge retention.
This is one GREAT knife! It is light, balanced and holds its edge. The low weight and balance can not be praised too much. These properties makes handling the knife much easier and precise. I have used many high grade knives, including Henckels and Wusthofs, and they have served me very well through te years. However, the Global has just blown these away! Its balance and weight make this my (and my wife's) favorite knife.

Love Global Knives
Global Knives are expensive but well worth it. My husband & I have been building our collection over the years and this was our seventh knife purchased. It's very well balanced and extremely sharp.8 of 11 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
We love the product. The knife is extremely sharp! The manufacturer should not have a thin plastic strap around the product as it is very difficult to remove the knife from it. Because of it, my husband cut himself and had to get stitches.
Also, it would be nice if the knife came with a protective shield for the blade if you don't intend to put it in a block.
Purchased as a gift for father. He loves the quality and workmanship of global. I have globals myself and they are excellent knives. Worth the money not to have to replace them down the road.6 of 10 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
