Global Classic 6" Serrated 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. Serrations in the blade make it especially useful for cutting foods with firm exteriors and soft interiors - from crusty bread and sausage to citrus fruits and tomatoes. Blade is made 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.

Best Tip design Utility
March 15, 2013
The Wüsthof utility knife, critical in breakfast prep and lunch sandwich de-crusting, disappeared and needed to be replaced asap. The weakness with that knife was that the serrations started too far back, forcing the tip to do most of the work making it less than ideal for de-crusting.
My knives of choice are the Shun Fuji and I was planning on buying the Fuji utility. But with my wife being the primary user of this knife I was worried that it was a little too sharp and the tip a little fragile for her style based on the reviews. After closely reviewing the full WS utility selection, the Global made the most sense for the intended uses.
The Global has passed the grueling morning routine. The serrations starting close to the tip make it the superior crust cutter. The large handle provides a solid grip yet is surprisingly well balanced and light weight. It's a has a nice sharp Japanese edge and handles well. It has won my wife's seal of approval.
