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 prefer hefty knives, its original knives--of which this 8-3/4-inch bread knife, with a scalloped edge for slicing crusty loaves, is an example--have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. 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

My Global has been slicing bread for three years now and guests still comment that it's "a really sharp knife". A low-carb disbeliever, and living near Seattle bakeries that are serious about their product, I eat lots of bread. Much mileage on the knife and it still melts through hard-crust Toscano Loaves like they were Wonderbread. Two more of these knives have been purchased for wedding gifts. Followup shows that the newlywed recipients didn't know that there were special knives just for cutting bread and are using this wonderful knife for cutting up everything. And love it.

Global knives are really awesome. This knife is amazingly sharp. Due to my own carelessness, I have actually cut my finger twice with this knife. I can assure you it goes through bread and finger with ease.

More seriously, because it is one peice, it is easy to clean and looks awesome. The feel is great in my hand and the knife is balanced.

This was the second Global knife I ever bought. I've had it for many years, and the serrated blade keeps it cutting like the day I first took it out of the package.

Besides cutting bread, which it handles in a Godly fashion, this has always been my knife of choice when cutting large roasts, turkeys, meatloaf, and even cakes. The serrated blade helps grip the meat as it slices, allowing for a perfectly thin piece every time. And with the meatloaf (as well as pates and terrines if you're savvy with the culinary lingo), it's the best tool to use without worry of the meat crumbling as you make each slice. I love using it for cake and even cheese cake because the long thin blade allows you to cut from end to end in one long slice rather than hacking at it with smaller knives that just weren't meant for the job.

So whether you're looking for a specific knife for your bread or roast cutting needs, or just another pretty knife to add to your collection, this is the knife for you.

Buy this knife if for no other reason than it makes minimal crumbs when slicing baked products, less mess to clean. Also does an excellent job chopping chocolate.

I own several bread/serrated knives: a Henckels 8'' bread knife, a Wusthof 10.25'' slicer, 3 versions of Victorinox wavy edge knives, and a Global bread knife. All are excellent knives and one cannot complain about owning either of them. I use the 20-years old Henckels mostly for cheese, the rest for bread. For tomatoes I definitely reach for a Victorinox knife. As a bread knife, Global wins easily, by a very wide margin. It also looks fabulous. Its teeth are somewhat too brutal for tomatoes and hard cheese. If you are willing to spend $100+, go with Global, and consider getting a Victorinox knife for tomatoes, maybe a 7'' chef's knife with a wavy edge. If you want to save $$$, you'll be plenty happy with the Victorinox only, but then you may want to get the 10 inch slicer or the offset bread knife. Think what other silly things you spend $$$ on, a great knife or two is probably a better use of your hard earned cash, and it will have you beaming from happiness, almost forever.

It's much lighter than I expected, hence the 4 (instead of 5) stars ... I guess I have this weird thing where I expect a knife in my hand to have some weight to it. It performed even better than I had hoped, though. While I've used it to slice bagels, my primary reason for purchasing this knife was to slice through the outer rind of pineapples. As far as I'm concerned, this is a pineapple knife! I had been using a cheap chef's knife before and nearly cut my fingers off a few times, before deciding the price tag on this was worth it.

I have been using Global knives for about 12 years and love them all. Just picked up the G-9 Bread Knife and it is top quality like the others I have. If the price is in your budget I would recommend these for the quality, balance and the styling.

I purchased this knife several months ago to finish off a new set of Global knives. It replaces a bread knife I bought at the grocery store when I was a student. Like all Global knives, it looks great, feels good in my small hand, and cuts nicely. I was surprised, however, to read all the other ecstatic reviews about this knife because I find its performance to be average, not significantly better than my 20-year-old grocery store bread knife. Don't get me wrong: I like the knife, I'm glad I bought it, it looks great, and it cuts bread. It's just not that special.
