Global Roast Slicer, G-8
The Global G-8 Roast Slicer comes from one of the world’s leading knife manufacturers, and it stands tall with their full line of products as a truly pro-grade kitchen tool which many serious home cooks swear by. Global is a Japanese knife company absolutely obsessed with the quality of their blades, taking sometimes new and innovative paths to find ways to make every knife in your kitchen that much better. This commitment to quality shines through in every product.
The G-8 Roast Slicer is a great choice for any carving job, allowing perfectly smooth and straight cuts to be made effortlessly through all kinds of meat. The knife is perfectly weighted, which to the end consumer simply means better control, and the razor-sharp cutting edge of the blade practically cuts on its own. When it comes to control, the handle on this knife is one of the best available. Simple features like a safety notch and non-slip dimpled surface should be expected, but it’s the little things Global does differently which really make their products stand out. The handle is made from the very same piece of stainless steel as the blade, and because the blade is very thin the handle is hollowed out to keep the knife perfectly balanced. To make sure it stays balanced no matter how you hold or use it, a small amount of sand moves freely within the handle to shift its weight.
As for that thin blade, it is ice-tempered from molybdenum vanadium stainless steel, and ground by hand into a sharp point with a long taper rather than a shallow bevel. It’s one of the sharpest knives a home user can hope to afford, and it will retain its cutting edge for a lot longer than you might be used to. These knives are very easy to care for and sharpen, and come with a lifetime warranty against defects and damage.
