Global Classic 7" Asian Chef's Knife

Global's award-winning knives are made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs. An ideal knife for mincing and dicing herbs and vegetables, the wide, lightweight blade that enables the chef to chop quickly, precisely and easily-with less fatigue. 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. Hollow-ground indentations along the blade increase efficiency and decrease sticking. Stainless-steel handle is seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, this knife is lightweight yet perfectly balanced.

my go to knife for important/delicate jobs
June 27, 2012
this knife is the first of my growing high end knife collection. without a doubt i am a blade head through and through and this knife kills anything that you can buy at your average restaurant supply store of the high end knives however this one still knocks out a few such as henckels and wustoff simply by feel grip and engineering unlike most german steel knives this and other japanese knives have a thinner superior edges and retention which in turn cut so smoothly and dont drag and tear through the food your cutting even after years of use (and proper maintenance and proper knife handling skills) this remains true
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight, outstanding in a skilled hand, lasts forever with proper maintenance
Cons: none
