Product Description

Amazon.com

High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and "face-ground" with a long taper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than even the best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrive from the factory razor-sharp. Although Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who like hefty knives, its original knives--of which this one is an example--have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. This 10-inch chef's knife, however, is intended for large-handed cooks and is relatively heavy. Global also dispensed with bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight. Balance is achieved by injecting a precise amount of sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a blade is maneuvered. A finger notch between blade and handle provides safety.

Stainless-steel handles are Global's most striking feature. They're molded to fit the hand and dimpled to resist slipping. Smaller around than many European-style handles, they're easy for small-handed cooks to grasp and seamless for sanitation. Global recommends using a ceramic sharpener or a diamond steel instead of a metal sharpening steel for its knives, supplemented by a synthetic whetstone, a ceramic whetstone, or a Shinkansen sharpener. Global also makes a Sharpening Guide Rail so blades can be honed on a whetstone at the proper angle. Global knives should be hand washed to protect edges. They carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack

Very very sharp and it has great balance.
PrimeTime
I do recommend the handheld sharpener for touch-ups, it returns the blade to a close factory edge.

I love the fact that the handle and the blade are all one piece.

I actually bought this knife locally and compared with the 8.25" GF-33, 10.5" GF-34 and 11" G-17 without knowing the size of each (they were pulled bare from a display case.) This forced me to pick the knife that actually felt best in my hands. I already own the 6.25" chef's knife so the 8.25 was out. The two bigger knives felt, well, too big and heavy. The 10" felt just right when held properly - thumb and forefinger on the aft most portion of the blade (just ahead of the handle.) The long slender profile really works in a knife of this length. It makes it feel more manageable without sacrificing the strengthes. The strengthes are of course more "rocking" length and more momentum when slicing. You cut right through an onion with minimal effort. If I were starting all over I'd skip the 6.25 and go straight for the 10. That being said, you really should hold a knife before you buy it since personal preference means everything.

In my Kitchen, this 10 inch Global chef's knife is the weapon of my choice. Throughout my amateur chef years (cooking at home for my wife and friends), I've used various, not cheap, German knives. I was satisfied with them, not knowing what else was out there. One day, a Japanese friend of mine introduced me to Global knives. Since then, I've never looked back at German knives. These swords are so beautiful and exceptionally sharp. It takes a lot of punishment to dull these knives so I only hone them once a week. Do yourself and these beautiful knives a favor and get the Global 9-1/2-Inch Ceramic Sharpener and the MinoSharp Water Knife Sharpener. Take care of your knives and they will take care of you.

I own both wusthof-trident and henckels sets but this is my favorite knife. I wasn't sure if a 10 inch was too large and unwieldy but this knife is beautifully balanced and so light weight that I have had no problem. Another great featuere is the fact that it is one solid piece so there is no yucky gunk that gets trapped in the haft or hinge area.
It sharpens very easily on a hardware store whetstone and for the finicky there are cheap knife guides available from the manufacturer to guarantee that you have the correct angle when grinding and sharpening.
If you want light weight with a very nice edge in combination with easy maintenace I would choose Global over either Wusthof or Henckels. For the style conscious -- it is very cool looking indeed.

I have the 12 inch version of this knife as well
as the 10 inch bread knife!
Both are incredibly sharp and wonderfully balanced.
Global knives use a very hard steel, so they are not
dish washer proof and need to be cleaned and dried
by hand after use! On the other hand it means they
stay sharp for longer! Another detail is that they
use a non-standard angle for the blade, so a normal
knife sharpener will not work on them as well...
Very expensive, but will last very, very long if
cared for and I really love these knives. I take
them with me whenever I go to a cooking/eating party
at friends places, as using other knives just feels
awkward now...
worth every penny....

I recently got this knife; I had been wanting a Global Chef's knife since I was given a Global utility knife as a gift. I was very impressed with it, to say the least.
This knife is very sharp and Stays sharp. Unlike the famous European colleagues that look very classic, but go dull in a short time and require round the clock steeling and sharpening, the Global can do the same amount of work with much less upkeep.
I would recommend this knife to anyone working in a kitchen, commercial or home use.
It is extremely light, and perfectly balanced. I use it at work, and it has never let me down. I do recommend the handheld sharpener for touch-ups, it returns the blade to a close factory edge.
It should be noted that the handle should be kept dry when you are working, because it will slip because of the nature of the design. That is it's only flaw.

Verified Purchase
The Global 10" is a great knife that comes with a very sharp edge. It is rather light (at least for a 10" knife) and is well balanced. It is well situated for both slicing meats and cutting and dicing vegetables, as it is easy to hold the knife forward towards its blade for a quick and balanced wrist action. The only reason I gave this knife 4 stars and not five is due to the handle. While it is dimpled it can still get slippery when cutting fatty meat. I would prefer a synthetic handle covering, but otherwise this is a well designed tool -- perhaps the best chef's knife available now.

If you buy this knife, it will be your most-used kitchen implement. There are tasks that require a smaller knife, and you will need the right tools for those tasks as well. But the very first high quality knife you should buy is this one, right here.

It excels at the wide range of tasks normally assigned to the big chef's knife.

You'll use it more than you use all your others. Stuff you used to use your serrated utility knife for, you'll find yourself reaching for this one now. Need to slice a tomato? This knife will flat out destroy the Henckels/Kershaw/Wusthof serrated small knives "made" for the tomato task. Some of them come coated with some kind of teflon in bright colors to protect the steel from discoloration caused by tomato acid. You rinse and wipe your knife when you use it, right? If you're not carving your tomato into fancy little shapes or doing that sushi chef's trick of rolling the tomato slice out of its peel, the small knife has little use, and the serrations are even less useful, after you've tried slicing a tomato with this knife. It will make a paper-thin cut so effortlessly you can't help but smile.

I thought I needed serrated knives for that type of task because I didn't know what a SHARP knife could do. I still use my little one occasionally, but my cooking is more of a rustic type where chopping and slicing are the major activities. If that's your style too, here's your tool--though you'll still eventually want a good boning knife and a good paring knife. Global makes a wide range of knives for these purposes too.

But if I could only have one knife, it would have to be this one.
