  • High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary
    stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless
    steel and "face-ground" with a long taper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than even the best
    high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives
    and arrive from the factory razor-sharp. Although Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who prefer hefty
    knives, its original knives--of which this 8-inch chef's knife is an example--have thinner blades and are lighter than
    traditional European-style knives. Global also dispensed with bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight. Balance
    is achieved by injecting a precise amount of sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance
    is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a blade is maneuvered. A finger notch between blade and handle
    provides safety.

    Stainless-steel handles are Global's most striking feature. They're molded to fit the hand and dimpled to resist
    slipping. Smaller around than many European-style handles, they're easy for small-handed cooks to grasp and seamless for
    sanitation. Global recommends using a ceramic sharpener or a diamond steel instead of a metal sharpening steel for its
    knives, supplemented by a synthetic whetstone, a ceramic whetstone, or a Shinkansen sharpener. Global also makes a
    Sharpening Guide Rail so blades can be honed on a whetstone at the proper angle. Global knives should be hand washed to
    protect edges. They carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack
