Global Cook's Knife 20cm
Global knives are manufactured by Yoshikin in Niigata, Japan from Cromova 18 stainless steel. The two most innovative features of Global knives are their edge and the way they are balanced. Global knife edges are ground straight to a point rather than beveled, resulting in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance.
The weight and balance of this knife allow it to be used for both heavy-duty work with thicker cuts of vegetables, fruits and meats or mincing and chopping herbs.
The curved blade enables a rocking cut and wide surface enables knuckle clearance and gathering of cut food. The G-series knives were among the first Japanese knives to be introduced to Western markets and have a devout following of happy customers.
The seamless melding of handle to blade and great balance make this a forgiving knife that does not damage easily and takes a keen edge.
