The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The gorgeous modern Light weight design includes a textured handle for a secure grip, offering superior control and precision. To balance the knives, Global's GSF Series handles are individually balanced, to maximize ease of handling. Global's unique smooth contours and seamless construction prevent food and dirt particles from collecting on the knife, offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene.
Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Global knives are manufactured by Yoshikin, who uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen the knives. The 18 percentage of chromium in the steel, contributes to Global's good stain resistance. The molybdenum and vanadium give the knife good edge retention.
