The Global GS-10, 5.5 Inch Cheese Knife has a serrated edge and holes in its blade that help to greatly improve the separation of cheeses from the blade. The two prong knife tip can be used to serve sliced cheeses.
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.

I have 5 other Global knives. I saw this cheese knife and purchased it to add to my collection. The best knife as I would have expected with features that make it so functional. I enjoyed using it on various types of cheese. The Global knives are beyond amazing! The weight, feel in your hand, the steel, and edges all add up to a 10.

I have had a nice set of Global knives for over twenty years. My son purchased three sets - Me , his sister and himself. As I am getting to an age which makes me wonder who will enjoy my possessions - I told him that I want my granddaughter who has grown up using Global knives to have mine. From my son "Sounds good to me - except for the cheese knife. I don't have one."
He now does.
Nice cheese knife

The Global cheese knife is my favorite. It works with all kinds of cheese and does not mash the cheese when you slice it. This is my second one!
Cuts lots of things much easier than my chef knife!

I was surprised by how easily this knife slices Gouda cheese (compared to my chef knife which, although very sharp, has trouble with cheese sticking to the blade). As with other Global knives I have, this one has a great handle, great grip and perfect weight. Sointu also had the best price for the knives, and I think I received them within 3 or 4 days. Great service!
Superb cheese knife

We have used another cheese knife for several years and when we found that we could use a second one we decided to look around for a really fine knife. This is just that knife - beautiful, comfortable and works like a dream!
Excellent General Serrated Edge Knife

OK, it's a cheese knife, but I ended up using it for all sorts of kitchen tasks--and then I misplaced it, and had to fall back on other small knives, and that was when I really started to appreciate it. So I replaced it. Forget about cutting hard butter with anything else. Terrific little knife!

another great product from Global. I would prefer a smooth blade rather than serrated, but i guess it makes sense to ensure longevity

Great knife! No more clunky pieces of cheddar cheese. Cuts very smooth and easy - thin slices are a breeze.
The price was the cheapest online!!!
