Global Cooks Knife, G-2
The name of the game with this Global Chef’s Knife is finesse and control, which is achieved with beautiful precision thanks to the innovative, leading design that chefs the world over have come to expect from Global. Their knives are different from the rest, taking a Japanese approach to a market otherwise often dominated by large and hefty European products, and for many chefs this can make all the difference in the world.
First and foremost, the blade itself has to be the focus of attention for any serious chef, and you won’t find an edge sharper than on the Chef’s Knife from Global. They are made from a molybdenum vanadium steel, which is a stainless steel renowned for its incredible resistance to wear, and the blade is given a long, sharp taper which will last a lot longer than the shorter bevel most knives are crafted with. Overall you will be surprised by the razor-sharpness of this knife, and the edge should last a great deal longer than those of competing products.
To really make the knife something special it is delicately and expertly weighted, using sand within the hollow handle to allow the weight to shift as you use the knife. It is a subtle but very effective feature, increasing the careful consideration given to the balance of this knife in the hand and putting it on par with heavier knives when it comes to control. Combined with the precision of a smaller, lighter knife, it is an extremely versatile product which should appeal to chefs of all types.
Because it is so sharp the knife does include a couple of simple safety features. First, the notch which eliminates the possibility of the hand slipping towards the blade. Second, the dimpled surface of the handle, allowing for a firm grip and providing even more control.
