Global Classic 5 1/4" Utility Knife

Made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs, Global's award-winning knives are an excellent choice for the discerning home cook. Use this general-purpose knife for small tasks, such as slicing fruits and vegetables or portioning sandwiches. Blade is hand forged of exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion. Prominent 1/4" edge is visible to the naked eye and ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in impressive sharpness and edge retention. Stainless-steel handle is seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, this knife is lightweight yet perfectly balanced.

Incredible Knife
February 22, 2013
After reading where Global was Giada Delaurentis' chef knife of choice I decided to try one. I wanted a knife a little smaller than my favorite Wusthof chefs knife and chose this one. What a knife this is! It is super sharp and the balance and weight of this knife is perfect. It's a truly impressive piece of cutlery; the next time I treat myself to a new knife it will probably be another from the Global line.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Size, Strength, Sharpness, Weight

I call it the Lightsaber
February 5, 2009
I needed a knife this size to fill the gap in my kitchen and when I saw this on sale I jumped. I wanted to try the Global knives. I LOVE IT. This thing is so sharp and light, yet still balanced. I call it the Lightsaber because cutting anything it almost effortless.

Excellent supplement to any chef's collection!
December 3, 2008
I bought this knife for my budding chef boyfriend as part of the three knife set (7" santoku and 3 1/2" paring knife). At first, I worried that it would be superfluous, and that I would get the most use out of the larger knife and the paring knife. I was wrong -- this guy comes in handy for all those random little chopping jobs, where a chef's knife just seems excessive, and a paring knife not big enough. I use it for chopping garlic and scallions, slicing hard cheeses, and cutting all sorts of smaller veggies (beets, carrots, etc.).
As far as Global knives go, they are fantastic! So sharp, easy to clean, nicely weighted, ergonomic, and pretty to look at. Would highly recommend any Global knives - particularly to those who want something a bit more affordable.
