Global G-5-7 inch, 18cm Vegetable Knife
Razor Sharp Edge
The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the GLOBAL edge is truly its signature. The majority of the GLOBAL knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade, just like Western style knives. However, their edges are ground steeply to a point as illustrated in Fig. 1, and to an acute angle. This is in contrast to Western or European knives that use a beveled edge, Fig. 2. The straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge on a GLOBAL knife is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter of an inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
Cromova 18 Stainless Steel
CROMOVA 18 is a steel, with a special mixture of molybdenum, vanadium and chromium. The exact combination is our trade secret, but the steel is made to be hard enough so that the knives retain their sharpness, yet soft enough to sharpen with a whetstone. The high chromium content gives the knives excellent resistance to rust and staining.
Functional Design Steeped In Tradition
From its modest inception, GLOBAL has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional kitchen knives in the world. Still crafted by hand in Yoshikin’s factory in Niigata, Japan, GLOBAL knives are manufactured to extremely high and exacting standards. GLOBAL has attracted much acclaim over the years and received numerous awards.
