This set comprises of a 7″ Asian cook’s knife, 8.25″ carving knife, 8.75″ bread knife, 5.25″ utility knife, 4″ paring knife, and the stainless steel storage block. The Global G-835/WS is loved by professional chefs everywhere. The Global knives are a great choice for any home chef professional or amateur. The thin and razor sharp blade allows anyone to cleanly slice through foods, preserving the integrity of the item they are slicing and maximizing its flavor.
Most Global knives are ground to a straight point rather than the western style of beveling the edge. To perfectly balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle, filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. The handle has its own unique ‘dimples’ for a non-slip grip.
The knives are designed to be very light-weight to reduce hand fatigue. Global knives have a smooth contour and a seamless, all stainless, construction that eliminates food and dirt traps. Global knifes are made in Japan from CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, a blend of 18 percent chromium, for good stain resistance, plus molybdenum and vanadium to give their knives an excellent edge retention.
