Global Knives - G2 Cookand#39;s Knife 20cm
The Global Cooks Knife has a deep tapered blade and is ideal for chopping and slicing all herbs and vegetables. . Razor sharp edges and a comfortable handle combine to make a very popular knife. This is just one knife from a large range of global knives.
The first Global knives were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada whose mission was to develop a range of knives that was truly new and revolutionary, using the best materials available and the latest manufacturing techniques. He was to fashion a series of kitchen knives which would appeal to the professional and amateur chef alike, be comfortable and easy to handle and meet their most demanding requirements.
With razor sharp blades, smooth contours, a seamless design and distinctive dots, Global was born. Using traditional samurai sword craftsmanship, each knife is painstakingly handmade to guarantee perfection. The perfectly balanced formula ensures that each Global knife is light weight, ideal for those who love to cook.
Global Knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel, utilising a unique Molybdenum/Vanadium alloy. The blades are ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56and#176; and#8211; 58and#176;, thus holding a steep, acute cutting edge whilst being robust and stain resistant.

A one-piece, solid metal design, the 20cm is deceptively light and slim bladed. If you are used to the weight of a Sabatier, you immediately assume you will have to press harder when using it, you sense that there is something inadequate about the Global. In reality, of course, it is beautifully balanced and practically effortless to use - if you are coming from using a Sabatier or a heavier knife, getting used to the weight when using a rocking motion is a bit awkward at first, but persevere, you'll find the cutting is more delicate.
Even when wet, the handle is safe and non-slip. Because this is a single forging, there is no danger of the handle coming loose, or of dirt building up in the joints - cleaning is much easier ... but avoid dishwashers, they destroy edges! The handle is cold to the touch but rapidly warms and is very comfortable in use. It also feels slightly slimmer than the Sabatiers, so may suit smaller hands.
Although a one piece, there is no danger of your hand slipping onto the blade edge - the blade curls back towards the handle making it impossible for your hand to slip forward towards the cutting edge.
The cutting edge is superb - tempered, hardened, stainless steel, compared in the adverts to a samurai sword blade. It keeps extraordinarily well. (Use a soft plastic chopping board, not a metal or glass one!Read more ›
Anyway fast forward to now and I don't know why but I thought I'd give the UK importers Grunwerg an email and see if they could help. I explained that it was a present and therefore I had no receipt but they asked me to return it to them for them to examine the knife. I returned it to their customer services and received a reply today. On inspection they found a small fault where it snapped and as a goodwill gesture are sending me out a new G2 knife in replacement. Result. When something goes wrong with a company is when they really show there metal and I will be singing their praises for a long time to come. No receipt and 6 years old and they still replaced it, fantastic.
Doesn't include fork.
Despite what one of the reviewers said, do NOT put them in a dishwasher. They can get bashed about and dishwasher salts etc can be rather harsh. It's best after use to just use regular washing up liquid and water, giving it a good rinse and drying promptly.
Once you get used to them, you will appreciate the balance and the form. Probably the first thing you notice about them is their sharpness, invest in a minosharp or a dedicated Global ceramic/diamond steel to maintain this sharpness.
I am on Day Two with this knife. I did a lot of test cutting on Day One, crunching my way through my five-a-day for at least the next fortnight. I cannot really fault the knife so far. Any faults have all been mine, as I gradually learn a new tool which I should have owned years ago - a properly sharp knife. Fortunately, there has been no bloodletting, just a couple of nicked fingernails.
A lot of reviewers say Globals are razor sharp. I tried out this knife in a shop, and thought it was sharp, but not that sharp. I now realise that particular one was dulled by being handled and tested by hundreds of people. The one that comes pristine out of the packet is wickedly, viciously sharp - yes, like a razor. It bites into anything it brushes against. Press it feather-lightly against a fingernail at even a very acute angle, and it digs in. I am genuinely scared of it at the moment. I know some rudimentary cutting techniques, most of which involve one or more fingers close to the blade - I shall build up to those gradually, because I'm going to have to get my brain and fingers fully co-operating. Mistakes that my other knives forgave will end in tears with this tool. But this knife will flatter any cook, even before mastering any special skills.Read more ›
