From the manufacturer
Designed By Legendary Designer Komin Yamada
"When I work with a cold material such as stainless steel I look to nature for my inspiration. Using the organic shapes of nature I am able to create harmony between the person and the utensil."
Razor Sharp Edge
The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the GLOBAL edge is truly its signature. The majority of the GLOBAL knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade, just like Western style knives. However, their edges are ground steeply to a point as illustrated in Fig. 1, and to an acute angle. This is in contrast to Western or European knives that use a beveled edge, Fig. 2. The straight edge results in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge on a GLOBAL knife is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter of an inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
Cromova 18 Stainless Steel
CROMOVA 18 is a steel, with a special mixture of molybdenum, vanadium and chromium. The exact combination is our trade secret, but the steel is made to be hard enough so that the knives retain their sharpness, yet soft enough to sharpen with a whetstone. The high chromium content gives the knives excellent resistance to rust and staining.
Functional Design Steeped In Tradition
From its modest inception, GLOBAL has developed into one of the most successful brands of professional kitchen knives in the world. Still crafted by hand in Yoshikin’s factory in Niigata, Japan, GLOBAL knives are manufactured to extremely high and exacting standards. GLOBAL has attracted much acclaim over the years and received numerous awards.
Used By Professional Chefs
Used by home and professional chefs like Ludo LeFebvre, Global knives are lightweight, yet razor sharp that help reduce hand fatigue. Global knives retain their edge longer than any other major brand on the market

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 are also 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 all-purpose 7-inch hollow-ground Santoku knife is an example--have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives.
Global also did away with bolsters on its original knives to reduce the 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 the 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, and they carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack

I use it for absolutely everything!! I know it's just a Santoku knife but it's my new chefs knife.
While I do have a couple of "nicer" more expensive knives, like shuns, macs, and masahiro. This is my all time favorite now!
The grip, feel, and balance is excellent!! It's light weight like most Japanese knives.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have a good quality steel "sharpening stick thingy" (FOR MOST NON KITCHEN PEOPLE) and run it through every time you use it!!!!! Like I said I work in a catering kitchen where I'm cutting stuff up all day every day and my knife still does not need to be sharpened. I run it a couple time through the steel and it's still as sharp (ok maybe just a itty bitty tiny almost none existent less sharp) as the first time I used it.
This is my first Global knife and I'm hopeful they will all be just as good quality as this one and I will definitely be purchasing more of these soon!!!
