Product Description

Product Description

Precisely cuts, slices, chops, or dices a variety of foods 5-inch blade constructed of ice-tempered and hardened stainless steel Resists rust, stains, and corrosion Hollow handle provides comfort and balance Hand washing is recommended

Amazon.com

Global knives are appreciated for their sleek, cutting-edge design and quality stainless-steel edges, and this 5-inch utility knife proudly continues the Global tradition. The razor-sharp edge cuts with striking efficiency, resulting in a neatly sliced tomato, cheese slice, or lime. The blade is constructed of ice-tempered and hardened stainless steel, and its edge stays sharp far longer than similar blades while resisting rust, stains, and corrosion. Put a Global knife in your hand and you'll notice its lightweight comfort and delightful balance, which is especially handy when slicing multiple fruits or veggies for a large gathering. The knife features thin blades and a hollow handle, and it should fit in many (if not most) knife blocks. Hand washing is recommended. --Rivers Janssen

By Doug Longmire on February 17, 2007
For many people it probably is.
I've had this knife for twelve years now, and I also have a full set of Global knives, but this little beauty is the one I reach for most often.
Why?
Because it is superbly sharp,lightweight in the hand and well balanced. Unlike those huge kitchen knives you see on tv cooking programmes,this knife is small enough to be easily manipulated, but large enough to tackle all routine kitchen duties. The 5" blade is long enough for almost all kitchen tasks, but short emough to give the user complete control.
Like all Global knives the GS 3 is SHARP !!!. Try chopping up vegetables, or slicing tomatoes or potatoes. The knife just glides through as if the veges were cooked.
This superb Japanese knife is streets ahead of European knives.
To maintain the blade, I recommend using a ceramic sharpening rod, made by Global (or Kyocera, which is cheaper). Every few months the blade will need resharpening. You can do this yourself, using Japanese waterstones (King, or Shapton,or Norton in grit sizes 1000 up to 8000) and cheap Mino Sharp guides to maintain the edge angle (check my other reviews for more details).
If you can't be bothered doing this yourself, take it to a competent expert knife sharpener and tell him you need a 12 to 15 degree angle on the edge.

addendum:- since writing this review I have purchased other Japanese kitchen knives from japanesechefsknivesdotcom, and the Hiromoto AS carbon steel knives are even better.

To be honest, I didn't love it at first, it didn't feel right in my hand. But I've been using it for a while now, and to be honest, the more I use it the more I like it. Its very sharp, keeps its edge and seems relatively easy to sharpen. BTW I'm a professional chef and use my tools hard. I think I like this knife better than my Grand Prix's and am thinking of buying a full size chefs knife next to see how I like it.
This knife is one of my favorites now, even replacing my Whustoff off set serated as one that always finds its way into my hand.

I have been a knife enthusiast and knife sharpener since 1973 and that year I bought my first German knife, which was a dream come true for a knife geek. In the mid 90's I was introduced to Japanese cutlery and haven't gone back since. Don't get me wrong, German knives are some of the best if you know which ones to purchase, but the Japanese have been making quality blades for well over a thousand years. I have a set of 5-Shun Classic knives, a set of 4-Al Mar twin lamanated knives, a set of 4-AlMar Damascus knives and my set of 3-Global knives. Recently I purchased a MAC SK-65 Santuko knife and it is well worth the price of this knife. I had a set of Victorinox which I gave to my son. Shun makes one of the best knives made and the AL Mar are less known than the rest but a great knife and now to my GO TO set, the Globals. I have the 7" G-55, 3 1/2" GS-38 Western Style Paring knife and my all around go to knife the 5.2" GS-3. The Globals are incredible. Everything written and reviewed about these are absolutely true, and after 39 years of messing around with knives, I have the experience to review them.
I'm not a wealthy person but believe that what you pay for is what you get. To me a $100 quality knife is a bargain, a knife that your grandchildren will be fighting over. If you can spring for the money or save for a top-end knife, do so. If money is a real issue then you may want to just consider the Classic Victoirnox set.
I read allot that people for some reason don't have access to get their knives sharpened. Do your research and decide if you want to learn how to sharpen your knives or look for someone in your local area to redefine the edges on your knives. I'll go out on a limb here but don't get a Steel hone, get a quality ceramic rod to keep your edges cleaned up.

Verified Purchase
I am an amateur home chef who really enjoys cooking. For many years, I unknowingly suffered with inferior, infomercial-purchased knives. I was never schooled on the importance of quality cutlery and didn't think much of it. Well, a little over a year ago I purchased my first Global Knife. It was the 7in. Santoku that included a Minosharp-2 sharpener/honer, and I fell in LOVE! Every time I used it I found myself saying "I LOVE this knife." I'm on a pretty tight budget but I became obsessed with acquiring more Globals so I recently added the GS-3 - 5 inch utility knife and it did not disappoint either. In many ways, I can see how this will become my go-to knife for most of my cooking needs. Global knives are the sharpest I've ever encountered. They hold their edge and sharpness for a LONG time. Just a few weeks ago, I barely (and I mean BARELY) touched my thumb with the santoku that I purchased over a year ago (and haven't sharpened/honed other than on the Minosharp-2 that came with it), and it sliced my skin so easily. I'm thankful that I didn't hit it any harder or it certainly would've required stitches. Well, the GS-3 is equally sharp and even more nimble. I now have purchased the Global G-2 Chef's knife and it's en route. Almost ALL of my infomercial knives have now ended up in the garbage, and will be entirely replaced very soon. I have no previous experience with quality cutlery other than my mother's Cutco knives so I'm by no means an authority on the subject. However, I did demo knives at a local dept. store and liked the feel of Global knives over the German manufacturers. While those knives were also well crafted, sharp, and highly reviewed, I preferred the light weight of the Global line. I've read other reviews saying Globals are great for smaller hands, but I am a big guy at 6'3" and I love how they feel in my hands. If you enjoy cooking and have the financial means of investing in quality cutlery, you will not be sorry you went with the Global line.
