Product Description

A knife suited primarily for cutting meat.  It can also be used as a multi-purpose knife for fruits and vegetables.  This knife is heavier than the G Series model. 

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.

  1. Perfect Balance

    Posted by John D. Hammerly on 7th Sep 2020

    Any knife made from quality steel can be sharpened to cut cleanly and easily, but the design and balance can't be easily changed. This knife is very well balanced, comfortable to use for long preparation steps, and very sharp.

  2. Beautiful, scary looking piece of cutlery.

    Well it's very large and perfectly weighted and proportionate. Probably bigger than most people ever need or even want but if you are in the market for a 12 inch Chef's blade this knife is just about perfect and I've never seen one better.
    I almost want to stop using it and store it as a item of collection but its so functional.
