This Global 10cm GS-97 Oriental Cook’s Knife, can be used for a broad range of cutting tasks from meat to vegetables to fish.
Don’t be deceived by its small-sized blade, the 10cm GS-97 Oriental Cook’s Knife is a great all-purpose knife that can be used to cut meat, vegetables and more. This size and style is essentially a mix of a cooks knife and a paring knife (just like a utility knife), but with its oriental blade style, like a Kiritsuke knife, it is great for cutting small pieces of fish. Global also offers this Oriental-style blade in an 11cm GS-58 Oriental Cook’s Knife that has a different style handle
Global knives are handcrafted by Japanese craftsmen and made to exacting standards from the finest CROMOVA 18 stainless steel. These knives are ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56˚- 58˚. This 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 GS Series (GLOBAL Small) is a classic collection of small to medium-sized knives for general preparation and precise prep tasks. There is a knife literally for any and every purpose. Many of these knives have multiple size options available and fluted varieties. Made from a 3-piece construction, two identical handle pieces are welded together and polished forming a hollow handle which is then perfectly balanced with the filling of sand. Lastly, the handle is fused to the patented CROMOVA 18 stainless steel blade.
