Since being introduced to the European cooking scene in 1988 Global knives have won numerous and prestigious awards for quality and design and are used by chefs in the finest hotels and restaurants all over the world. Also, many of the most prominent celebrity chef's including Susur Lee, Geordie Glumac, Anthony Bourdain and the lovely Giada De Laurentiis, use Global knives.
A good knife handle must be light, strong and be comfortable for the user to hold. These features provide a safe and efficient knife handle. The handle has two vertical pieces that cover the extension of the blade of the knife. (the part of the knife between the handle pieces is also called the tang....see below) Each of the two handle pieces has the same horizontal diameter. They cover the extension from the knife blade, which extends partially or completely the length of the handle. A quality kitchen knife tang runs the entire width and length of the handle and can be seen between the handle parts. Rivets hold the blade extension and the handle parts together.
We did buy this knife just to see if what the man had said was true. He did not exaggerate. We were hooked. Being lightweight is one thing but the balance of this knife was superb. The design is sleek and modern in appearance but filled with the Japanese tradition of making some of the world's best cutting steel.
