Global G-2 Chef's Knife

Continuing our write up of some of the best kitchen knives of 2015 we come to this global G2, 8 inch chefs knife.

Now you can see clearly from this picture of global really do make some beautiful looking kitchen knives that set them apart from many of their competitors. The closest competitor in terms of visual appeal aesthetics would have to be a company called Shun who also make Japanese-style kitchen knives at the higher end of the market.

This is an incredibly popular knife made by global and is a lightweight highly balanced 8 inch knife or for those of you that like to work in metric it’s approximately 20 cm long.

The blade is made of a high-tech combination of stainless steel which includes some secret sauce technology to ensure that the blade stay shop also is robust and flexible at the same time.

Global make knives which remain razor-sharp and exceptionally well performers so much so that we don’t often recommend global knives to people who aren’t as experienced handling shock to tonight just because the risk of cutting yourself is so great.

Again were big fan of covering off with the nights are dishwasher safe and in this instance the recommendation is absolutely to hand wash the knife only it’s very quick to clean this night by hand because it is a single tang knife, which means there is no additional material beyond the core of the knife itself so it’s very quick and easy to wash up by hand.

Remember for maintaining your knife and keeping a sharp we recommend light and frequent sharpening, however it is worth bearing in mind this is a Japanese style kitchen and the knives are sharpened and created at a slightly steeper angle and lots of other European kitchen knives.

As such you do need a special sharpener for this we would tend to recommend that Mino Sharp Plus which is specifically made to shop and kitchen knives of the Japanese-style.

You can find this knife over on Amazon for the best price.
