Storing your knives loosely in one of your kitchen drawers is a bad idea, yet many people do exactly that. Doing so poses a danger to anyone who opens the drawer. Your knives can also be damaged while sliding around among the other cutlery and kitchen tools sharing the drawer.

There are many good and even exceptional knives in this world. This happens to be one of the accoutrements of the cooking world where opinions are wide and varied. We have used many different brands in our kitchen until we stumbled across Global knives. After that, for us, the knife question was settled on the topic of luxury cutlery. I must warn you, they are not what you call classic in looks, at least not when you compare them to the classic heavy handled German knives that so many chiefs love.

High Carbon Stainless Steel knives are ones that have between 0.1% and 1.0% Carbon as well as the needed amount of Chromium. They can be hardened through heat treating and will hold a good edge, requiring knife sharpening much less often. Typically these steels will also contain a combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium. Molybdenum is an element that increases a knife's toughness while Vanadium helps maintain a sharp knife edge for a longer period of time. High Carbon Stainless kitchen knives tend to have thicker blades and be less flexible. These kitchen knives tend to be more expensive as high carbon stainless is more costly to use. Instead of buying an entire knife set buying kitchen knives individually can allow a person to acquire better knives over time. Some examples of High Carbon Stainless Steels are 440-C, ATS-34, VG10, and S30V.

High carbon stainless steel is the top choice material for use in making cutlery knife blades. This top grade material keeps its color and is not damaged by acid foods like onions, lemons or tomatoes. Although it is much harder to craft a good cutting edge initially, it lasts much longer on a high carbon stainless steel blade. Materials that have less carbon content, like carbon steel and stainless steel, are also used for good kitchen knives. However, those knives do not last as well as those of high carbon stainless steel.

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.

The amount of Chromium is a debatable point some say 10.5% is enough for a steel to be stainless but when looking at most better quality stainless steels 12% - 14% seems to be the norm. That said Chromium is not the only element crucial to here. The quality of a kitchen knife varies considerably with the type of steel that the knife is made from. Many knives that are simply called stainless contain virtually no Carbon. Carbon is the element that allows steel to be hardened, hard steel will hold an edge better than soft steel thus providing better edge holding. Low Carbon Stainless typically has less than 0.03% Carbon, these tends to be used on inexpensive kitchen knives and other kitchen cutlery. They do not hold a very good edge and require frequent sharpening. Some telltale signs are highly shinny blades, often they are very thin and flexible knives, and commonly have serrated blades such as those seen on a bread knife.
