Product Description

Product Description

This 7-in. Asian Deba Knife is sharpened on the right side of the blade only, making it suitable only for right handed cooks. The mirror finish near the blades edge encourages ingredients to fall away from the knife and allows the cook to keep ingredients pristine. 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.

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. 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. Although Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who like hefty knives, its original knives have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. This knife, however, is relatively heavy. Thick at the back, the broad, 7-inch blade, designed for butchering fish and chopping hard vegetables, carries enough weight to chop through fish bones. For clean, low-friction cutting, the blade is tapered to an edge on only one side so it's even sharper than other Global knives.

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

Professional cook here. I don't use this knife as an all purpose knife. It wasn't intended to be one. I've tried to, but it doesn't work very well as one. It being single bevel, it tends to make the wrist turn while cutting hard objects like carrots, which is why it shouldn't be used in place of a chef's knife. Debas are meant to be used for breaking down whole chickens (not cutting the bones though) and butchering fish (can cut fish bones).

While the Global deba (and all Global knives in general) is very sharp out of the box, it is because of the concave edge they put on it, not the traditional V edge. It stays sharp longer, but without special equipment, one cannot sharpen Globals to the same factory edge with just sharpening stones.

I don't see how Global can really classify this knife as a deba though. It's too thin to be a real deba and rather light. Debas are usually twice as thick and have a tougher edge, rather than the delicate edge on the Global deba. I had to sharpen this knife to a more obtuse angle to use it for its intended purpose because the edge kept on rolling or chipping. Plus, it's rather expensive. There are much better debas out there made with better steels for the same price or cheaper. I applaud Global for being unique in their designs, but function over form is extremely important with knives in the professional kitchen. A deba is meant to be used and abused with no babysitting.

As a professional chef, I have had the opportunity to work with just about every brand of knife out there. Recently, my very first chef's knife which I had purchased 22 years ago, was stolen along with the rest of my equipment. It was one of the original Henckels 8" chefs's knives with a nice, thin bolster which is so hard to find nowadays. Unfortunately, the current trend is to make them thick and heavy. Originally, I had replaced it with a Wustoff Classic 8", which is a great knife, but the heft kept throwing me off and slowing me down. On my sous chef's recommendation I decided to check out some Global knives.

The Global Deba is the first knife by this manufacturer that I have ever tried, and I am very impressed. My first impression was that it was way too light, and that the handle was designed for someone with small hands. That opinion changed the moment I gave it a test run on some zucchini. It is lightning fast and razor sharp, and the balance is perfect. I now realize that a thicker and heavier handle is necessary for control when you have a thick bolster. This is the perfect light all-purpose knife for any professional chef. The only thing I wouldn't recommend using it for is breaking down a whole chicken. You need to rely on the weight of a traditional knife for that. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend it.

As a professional chef, I would buy this knife again and again. The factory edge is amazing, I have never seen a knife as sharp as this, right out of the box. Even with the Deba having only one side it is extremely easy to sharpen. I have used all the major knife brands and I find the steel in all of Global knives to be of the best quality.You can not go wrong if you purchase of this knife!

This knife is simply a joy to use. It's nicely weighted, but not heavy. It feels great in your hand. And it's the sharpest knife I've cut with. It is beveled only on the right side (the side you see in the photo), while the other side is flat. This shape causes what you are cutting to glide neatly off to the right. The Deba is especially fine for cutting fish for sushi or sashimi, or even that basil chiffonade. I find myself using it for almost everything. As long as you're not left-handed, you won't regret this purchase.

Yep, this is the knife, and I mean this one. I'm sure that the other Global knives are excellent too (I haven't used them) but this particular knife is about my idea of kitchen cutlery perfection (i.e. super sharp, light, long and fine enough to handle most any job and very well balanced); however, this knife is dangerous (my wife won't touch it, another positive point) because it is so very sharp that getting a finger in the way will definitely mean a trip to the hospital. Be very careful (and somewhat afraid) and you'll love this knife and know what fine kitchen cutlery is about (and I've used all of the great German stuff too). This knife is just better ...

This is another great knife from Global. It's sharp and beautifully balanced and like all Global knives, fits in the hand wonderfully. All I use are Global knives. I have the left-handed version, so for those of you out there who are left-handed like me....Global didn't overlook you!
