Product description

Product description

The Global Knives 8" Chef's Knife is made of CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, which has a chromium content of 18 percent. The chromium in the blade adds to its stain resistance, while components such as vanadium and molybdenum help the blade retain its sharp edge over time. Because it is made of a single smooth piece of metal, this knife doesn't have any divots or crevices where food can get trapped, and the long taper stays sharper for longer than a traditional beveled blade would. At 8 inches long, the blade is ideal for cutting large vegetables and meat, or you can use it for chopping herbs, dicing onions, or other common kitchen tasks. You'll love the superior balance of this knife, which is achieved through a unique hollow-handle design that is filled with sand, and the sand shifts as you maneuver the knife to adapt the balance to the position of your hand. Dark dimples on the handle help you keep a steady grip, so you don't have to worry about slips even when the handle is wet, and a finger notch where the blade meets the handle improves safety. The lightweight knife is comfortable enough to let you engage in major chopping jobs without fatiguing your hand, and it comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

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-inch chef's knife 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
