Why Global Knives are a must have in your at home
French are known for Laguiole cutlery and the English known for Bone China. For the best in stainless steel knives Japan excels. Japan has been forging knives for centuries, and their skills world renowned for excellence in the field. Global has drawn on centuries of craftsmanship to ensure that the way they are balanced. Also that their edge is as perfect as possible.
The precision blade edge of a Global knife would be its signature. Unlike many Western knives which are machine bevelled to a sharp edge, with Global the knife blades are sharpened by grounding on both sides of the blade. This results in a much steeper angle and thinner blade edge. The edge, in fact, is so thin that even when it wears down it still cuts thinner than a bevelled edge blade.
With respect to perfect weight balancing, anyone who knows about quality cutlery knows hollow handles are much more difficult and time-consuming to create. For perfect cutlery weight, hollow handles are a must. Global uses hollow handles to ensure perfection in even weight distribution when handling. The hollow handles are measured, and sand-filled inside for perfect balance. Using this method instead of a traditional full tang and bolster ensures efficiency when cutting and sharpening.
