Product Description

Tough and rigid, this knife has a serrated edge that makes it easy to cut through bread crusts.  It is excellent for cutting hard types of bread, such as French loaves.

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.

    Another fantastic knife from Global knives. Very sharp, well balanced and most important, it sliced bread without crushing it.

    I love Global knives. This knife is great. Extremely sharp out of the box. Will buy more for sure.

  3. Best Knife

    This is the third top rated bread knife I tried and it is the best. Cuts bread into thin or thick slices without crushing the loaf. Sharp and nicely balanced I found the "keeper". Sointu is a very good company to transact business, as their communication on ordering and shipping status were spot on.

  4. Global knives are great, and this one is yet another good example!

    I have a few Global knives now, and like their sharpness, their handles and their grip. This bread knife has perfect length and cuts artisan breads with strong crust no problem.

  5. Global are the Best knives

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Apr 2020

    I’ve used Global knives for the last 15 years and love them. You get what you pay for and these are amazing, even at a higher price point than average kitchen cutlery. The one knife that was missing in my collection was this bread knife. When I saw it on sale on the Sointu site, I ordered it immediately. Due to the many restrictions and delays due to Covid19 I thought it may take weeks to receive it. Wrong! It came within days and I’ve used it every day since then. (Covid19 bread baking happening here!). I’m so pleased with how fast this item was sent and I love the knife even more. I will continue to shop on the Sointu site for other items.

  6. Global quality, great price, great service

    Knife is sharp and stylish too. Sointu had the best price by far. I was super impressed when I called Sointu customer service when I realized I made a typo in my online order. A real human answered on the second ring and quickly took care of my error.

  7. Awesome Knife

    This bread knife is excellent. I highly recommend it.

  8. Bread knife

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2018

    Excellent product. I make artisan bread & it cuts right through the hard crust perfectly!

  9. Simply the Best

    Posted by Rachel Teigen on 11th Jan 2018

    I requested a bread knife for Xmas--I expected my husband to ADD to my Global knife collection but instead, he bought a Wusthof and I was sorely disappointed. I tried to live with this knife for about a week but the quality was not the same nor the attention to design and detail. The difference in the knives is immediately apparent. Global has a stronger blade and felt more powerful. My highest recommendation!

  10. Exactly what I wanted, great price

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Nov 2017

    I have 3 other Global knives and can't say enough good things about them. This website had the bread knife for much less $ than every other site I checked. It came quickly and works awesome. Highly recommend both the knife and this company!
