Product Description

This knife is a small, double-beveled "deba" knife (Japanese fish knife), made for western customers who are not familiar with single-beveled knives.  It is used for cutting meat and fish into small chunks.  It can also be used for cutting small fruits 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.

    I have yet to come across another knide as well balanced as this one. I was first introduced to this knife by someone who has worked in Michelin starred restaurants in California. No matter if you have a narrow palm like mine or a wider palm like my friend's it always feels like the perfect weight. I have owned double man henckels knives before, but they never compared to the performance of this one. Excellent starter knife! Please bear in mind this knife will last longer with a sharpener meant for japanese steel. Love love love
