'Global' is a brand of kitchen knife
, much favoured by chef
s and cook
around the world.
Although relative newcomer
s compared to the likes
(the first Global knife was made in 1985
) they're popular
ed. Yamada wanted to make a
knife that was different from current styles (the roots
of which could
be traced back a hundred or more years in some cases), and set about
creating the Global range.
Global knives use Molybdenum
/Vanadium stainless steel
, which retains
it's edge very well compared to regular stainless steel. The steel is
and hardened to Rockwell C56-58
, further increasing it's
ability to retain an edge. Each blade is weighted
to sit comfortably
in the hand while working, and the simple
construction eliminates dirt
and food traps.
But enough of the sales pitch
. If you work in a kitchen, or are a
, consider getting yourself a decent cooks knife
Global. I guess the best recommendation I can give is that in the
where I work there are plenty of knives, of all shapes and
. There is however only one Global knife, and we argue
two of us want to use it at the same time.
