This product is used for butchering raw meat.
Global knives are unique because of their edge and the way they are balanced. The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The majority of the Global knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade like western style knives. However, their edges are ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and a bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. First, it is a far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Second, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening.
Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen the knives. The CRO in CROMOVA 18 stands for chromium and the 18 is the percentage of chromium in the steel. This high percentage of chromium contributes to Global's good stain resistance.
Always go with global

I love the knives and my husband has a huge collection. I wanted to surprise him with another knife to add to it, so this was a great surprise for him.
Best for the Price

As anticipated, a remarkable knife for the price. Ideal for the high achieving home cook. Sointu was amazingly quick to deliver and provided tracking information immediately upon purchase. A pleasure to purchase from Sointu. Thank you!

This is our first cleaver, and so far we hit a home run. Great customer service. I made a duplicate order on another knife and they quickly responded. The order arrived in excellent time, considering Covid19. My son and I were very impressed with the quality of the Global cleaver. Between the two of us we own 7 Global knives. Thanks

The missing piece in my global series which are incredibly well designed knives. This is the original. Surprisingly super quick shipping and delivery. Very pleased with this company.

I used it to cut through a goat sholder and it worked great.

Purchased this cleaver; recommended by Cook's Country, and I needed a cleaver to add to my extensive knife collection along with Global GS-14. Packaging, Delivery, and Authentic items deserve this 5 star rating. Have not used items. But I am back for more. Too bad, I discovered SOINTU USA after so much monetary investment in knives.
