Product Description

Precisely balanced 10-inch chef's knife for chopping, mincing Blade made of high-tech molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel Edge retains razor sharpness exceptionally well Stainless-steel handle molded for comfort, dimpled for safe grip Lifetime warranty against defects and breakage

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

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 love this knife. Before going into detail, it is important to clarify the primary difference between Japanese and German knives in my kitchen. Japanese knives are extremely hard and brittle - allowing the knife to become razor sharp. German knives are softer, but tougher - allowing the knife to cut through tough foods.

That said, this knife has a place in my kitchen as the go-to knife for cutting up raw beef and chicken, all soft fruit and vegetables, herbs and such.

What I don't use this knife for is tough fibrous foods like raw potatoes - the knife feels too light weight and does not allow me to have the control over the knife that I would prefer - I reserve my Wusthof knife for those situations.

All in all, this is an excellent knife that fits in really well in our collection of knives that are chosen for a purpose - we have knives that excel at carving meat, at dicing veg, butchering beef, cutting tomatoes, ect ect. This can be your go-to knife for everything, but if you can only afford one knife, I would suggest an 8-inch chef's knife unless you are a very large person with huge hands.

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.

The Global G-16 is an extremely versatile knife due to it's length, blade shape, and weight. It's very well balanced, the weight feels perfectly distributed.

This is unquestionably one of the best knives you can get in this price range.

This is my go-to knife for almost everything. It's excellent for chopping and slicing vegetables, herbs, greens, and meat.

Due to it's thin blade profile and edge, the G-16 is not particularly great for extremely thick or hard things like butternut squash or chicken bones. For those tasks I prefer a thicker knife with more heft to it, or a cleaver.

I have owned this knife for more than 3 years and have used it almost every day since I got it. I also own its little brother, the 8" G-2 Global G-2 - 8 inch, 20cm Chef's Knife, a great knife as well. I use the 10" G-16 much more often than the 8" G-2. I could do without the 8" knife, but not without this knife.

If you are not a professional chef, this may be the last chef's knife you will ever need to buy. Sure you will need some smaller knives for specific purposes, but this knife will handle almost any job and with proper care the edge will stay razor sharp.

This knife will brunoise an onion perfectly with ease, make quick work of a whole bundle of herbs such as parsley or rosemary, cut through large carrots like butter, and finely slice a tomato or anything else with precision.

Take good care of your Global knives and they will last a lifetime.

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....
