Made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs, Global's award-winning knives are prized for their perfect balance, light weight and sleek, seamless construction. This set includes three fundamental pieces of kitchen cutlery, so you can enjoy the performance of Global knives every day. Set includes a 7" Asian chef's knife, a 5" hollow-ground santoku and a 4" paring knife. Stamped blades are made from exceptionally hard Cromova 18 high-carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to resist corrosion. Prominent 1/4" edges are visible to the naked eye and ground straight to a point rather than beveled, resulting in impressive sharpness and edge retention. Stainless-steel handles are seamlessly constructed and textured for a good grip. Crafted to professional standards, these knives are lightweight yet perfectly balanced.
