Imported from USA

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 are also 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 all-purpose 7-inch hollow-ground Santoku knife is an example--have thinner
blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives.

Global also did away with bolsters on its original knives to reduce the 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 the 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, and they carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack
