Summary

Made to the exacting standards of Japanese professional chefs, Global's award-winning knives are an excellent choice for the discerning home cook. This chef's knife's long razor-sharp blade is suited to virtually any cutting task, from dicing vegetables to quartering a chicken.

  • Stamped 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.
Dimensions & More Info
  • 8" knife: 8"-long blade, 4 1/2"-long handle, 5.5 oz.
  • 6" knife: 6"-long blade.
  • Made in Japan.
Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone or frozen food, as the blade can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Use the honing steel only when you feel the knife has lost some of its original sharpness, usually no sooner than six months after its first use. As you continue to use your Global knife, it will require more frequent honing. If you need to hone your knife more than once every two weeks, it is time to have it sharpened.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from I give them as gifts! Not only are they my favorite knives, but I give them as birthday gifts, wedding gifts, etc., and create grateful users everywhere. They feel great in my hand, and I find myself doing things in my prep work I have never tried before. A friend's son was selling a well known knife brand, and even she admitted Global was the better knife! My personal favorites are the Santuko and the smaller chef's knife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They scratch easily I LOVE my Globals. Have had them about 2 months and it is a delight, with my small hands, to use a balanced knife. When I attempted to get a piece of dried food off of one knife using a soft scrub pad, it left scratches in the finish. FYI.
