Product Description

This knife's broad width makes it suitable for cutting big vegetables.  The heel of the knife is slanted.  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. Great knife

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Sep 2020

    My wife absolutely loves this knife for chopping vegetables. We have several other quality brand knives, and this one has to be her favorite. Slices through fruits and vegetables with ease, and she she loves the weight. I’m sure we will be buys others in this line.

  2. Heavy weight veggie knife

    I work in a kitchen and I love this knife for prepping everyday. The fully forged knife is felt and it glides down veggies like room temp butter.

  3. it's got heft

    I have the standard Global knives which are sharp and good but feels light in the hand. I've been wanting the GF36 for awhile. It is heavier and thus helps when cutting large and firm vegetables. It is, like all Global knives, extremely sharp.

  4. Heavy Duty

    Posted by Kyle Bastien on 20th Mar 2018

    I've been lusting after this knife for quite some time. I could finally justify buying it because I now follow a vegan diet which means cutting up a lot of vegetables, which is what this thing does extremely well. It is big and heavy and sharp. Considerably heavier than all my other Global knives, which does seem to make a difference whilst cutting through things like yams or potatoes. The GF series of Global knives are substantially thicker and heavier. If you work in a kitchen this might make a difference to you. If you just like nice knives in your home, then this one is a great addition to the collection.

  5. Great-handling knife

    The heavier-weight Global Vegetable Knife makes slicing, dicing and chopping vegetables quick and easy. The sharp edge and heftier feel combine to make a great precision knife.
