Global Cook's Knife Fluted 16cm
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 chef knife allows it to be used for both heavy-duty work with thicker cuts of vegetables, fruits and meats, or for mincing and chopping herbs. The curved blade enables a rocking cut and its wide surface enables knuckle clearance and gathering of cut food. Food sticks less to fluted knives due to the air pockets which are created during cutting.
The G-series knives were among the first Japanese knives to be introduced to Western markets and have a devout following of happy customers.
