The Global 20cm G-2 Cook’s Knife is very multi-purpose and the workhorse of the kitchen. Perfect for mincing, cutting, chopping, slicing and prep work. Featured in all of Globals knife block sets.
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.
This sharpener consists of two ceramic wheels. No.1, white, is coarse and No.2, pink, is fine for a complete sharpening process. Due to the fact that the sharpening groove is not parallel, the oblique angle of the ceramic wheel is able to restore the razor sharpness of the knife. This ceramic water sharpener has been tested and approved by CATRA, the foremost authority on knife sharpening techniques, based in Sheffield, England. The number of strokes required will depend on the condition of the knife, but we recommend 7-8 strokes on each wheel for Global knives and for other brands try 15 strokes on each wheel to start with. If more is required repeat with another 15 strokes on each wheel.
