Knife blocks are a very popular way to store kitchen knives. If you buy a knife set, storage blocks are often included. You can also buy stand alone knife blocks in various sizes. Knife blocks provide safety and convenience, but they take up counter space and can be difficult to clean when necessary. It is important to make sure your knives are clean and dry before you store them in a block. Moisture, dirt and food particles can get stuck in the slots and cleaning the slots is not usually easy though a can of compressed air can help.
Inspired by ancient Samurai swords of Japanese lore, Global knives are carefully weighted to have incredible balance in the user's hand. The construction of the knife blade to handle is seamless, which means no grooves or pits for dirt or food particles to get trapped in. The handles of the knives are dimpled to give the user a sure grip. Global knife blades are ground down to a point instead of being beveled like western knives which results in extraordinary and long lasting sharpness.
Ask most people, and they will tell you that a knife has a blade and a handle. Usually that is the limit of the information a person has about knife structure. However, knowing a little more helps to choose a good set of knives. The handle of a knife is used for holding and for controlling the knife. Some handles are made from wood. These require careful care and will become damaged, if left soaking in water. There are knife handles that are hand carved. Synthetic materials, even plastics that are heat resistant, are commonly used for handles. Metal handles are also common and provide long life for a handle.
