The Global GS-11 15cm Flexible Utility Knife is ideal for small cutting, dicing and slicing jobs. Its narrow blade makes it suitable for filleting too.
The GS-11 is one of the more popular knives in the GLOBAL range and is frequently found in many of the sets where it fills the role of filleting, carving and ‘general purpose’ knife, hence its name. The GS-11 has a medium-sized blade at 11cm which is good for filleting small fish and the blade is also flexible which makes it suitable for this purpose. It can also be used as a small carving knife and as it says, utility by name, utility by nature. There are also larger flexible knives available from GLOBAL including the G-30 21cm Swedish Filleting Knife, the G-20 21cm Filleting Knife, the G-19 27cm Filleting Knife & the G-21 16cm Boning Knife. This 15cm Utility knife also comes in a serrated version, the GS-14 and a fine serration version, the GS-13.
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.
