Global G-12 Meat Cleaver
Serious cooks require serious knives, and the Global G-12 Meat Cleaver means business. You won’t have trouble cutting through heavy meat and bones with this cleaver in your hands, and as this is a Global product you can also feel safe in its build quality and ability to withstand that kind of heavy use over the long haul. This is a Japanese knife built for great results and designed to last.
The difference with Global’s knives is first and foremost in their absolutely unbeatable quality, because they take great pride in their work. They are always looking for new ways to innovate and improve upon their designs, never satisfied with creating just any old knife, and the difference this makes is immeasurable. You will appreciate the finer details when you get the chance to use one of these yourself.
The most important feature of any knife is always going to be the blade itself, which in this case is made from ice-tempered stainless steel which is very strong and durable, and it is also edged to be much sharper than the usual knife. The strength of the steel is what makes this Japanese knife able to withstand very heavy use even with such a thin blade, which is also lighter than the average meat cleaver. Like all Global knives, these are sharpened by hand.
You might think that a lightweight blade sounds like a bad idea for a cleaver, but Global’s second important innovation is the secret to maintaining great balance throughout the knife when it is held in the hand. The hollow handle is specially weighted for balance, and this will allow the knife to be used with greater dexterity and precision. They have injected every handle with just the perfect amount of sand to shift and maintain that balance while you are cutting with the knife.
