A knife suited primarily for cutting meat into pieces. It can also be used as a multi-purpose knife for cutting meat and vegetables.
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.

My friend recommended this knife to me & I love it. It stops me from cutting myself b/c I don't have to put so much strength in trying to cut as it's so sharp!! Would recommend it to everyone!!

I purchased the 7 inch chef knife and couldn't be any happier with it. It's super sharp and cuts through everything like butter. I have Cutco brand knives that I thought were sharp but this puts them to shame. I will definitely be buying more Global brand knives.
Very happy with the 7" Chef Knife

I only hesitate to give this knife 5 stars because I think I should have gotten the 8", but I definitely love the knife and am very glad I didn't go with the 6". It has a super light feel and is incredibly sharp. I love Global and this one does NOT disappoint!
very good knife
