Global Peeling Knife, 8CM Forged
The Global GSF-15 Peeling Knife is a great option for smaller kitchen jobs where precision is the key, and this little tool stands to make your life easier in a number of ways. It is a good choice for slicing and cutting small items, and a truly premier tool when it comes to peeling and cleaning fruits and vegetables. A razor sharp edge makes all the difference in the world, and this is one of the sharpest knives most people will ever own.
The secret behind the blade’s sharpness and durability is all in the amount of care Global goes to in creating their knives. First the highest quality of materials has to be chosen, which for this line of knives is molybdenum vanadium stainless steel. This means that the steel is able to resist rust and corrosion while retaining the inherent strengths of steel, and to make certain of that fact the knives undergo a process known as ice tempering which ensures the structure of the steel itself is as strong as it can be. Because of all of this, they are able to create a blade that is notably thinner than the competition, and Global grinds and sharpens every edge by hand.
Because this is a small tool you also want the level of comfort in your hand to be something given careful consideration. They say a knife should feel like an extension of your arm, and that is a hard trick to pull off with small knives, but they manage it here very well. Because the blade is so thin and therefore light, the handle has to be made lighter to match it, so it is left hollow but also infused with free-moving sand which helps to maintain the delicate balance that is so important when it comes to precise control. The handle also features a non-slip surface of dimples, and it is made in the same high quality materials as the blade itself.
