Global knives are handcrafted by Japanese craftsmen and made to exacting standards from the finest CROMOVA 18 stainless steel material. These knives are ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56˚- 58˚ which holds a razor-sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains and corrosion. The Global Classic collection has remained unchanged since 1985 as a true testament to its quality and unique construction. This original collection designed by Komin Yamada promises durability, quality and timeless design that captures the spirit of Global’s philosophy and insistence on excellence. The G Series is a classic and the most popular collection of large knives, these knives can be used for general preparation and also for the more adventurous chef.
Recommended for sharpening Global knives, this device employs two ceramic wheels -one coarse, the other fine to return a dull knife to working order. For some people, learning the skill of intermediate sharpening with a ceramic or diamond rod is difficult. It is essential that you maintain your knives on a regular basis and it will be easier to maintain them for the long term. The easiest to use devices – a water wheel sharpener called MinoSharp and MinoSharp Plus. These are handheld ceramic sharpeners and no experience or skill is required to use them simply fill the reservoir with water and run your knife backwards and forwards a few times. The revolutionary ceramic wheels ensure the blade is sharpened at the correct angle.
Replacement wheels are available to purchase when needed.
