High-tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan createda sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as analternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made ofhard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and "face-ground" with a longtaper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than eventhe best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at amore acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrive fromthe factory razor sharp. Although Global also makes a heavyweight linefor cooks who prefer hefty knives, its original knives--of which this7-inch Oriental chef's knife (or santoku) is an example--have thinnerblades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. Globalalso dispensed with bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight.Global achieves balance in these knives by injecting a precise amountof sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensurebalance is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a cookmaneuvers the blade. A finger notch between blade and handle providessafety.

Stainless-steel handles are Global's most striking feature. They'remolded to fit the hand and dimpled to resist slipping. Smaller aroundthan many European-style handles, they're easy for small-handed cooksto grasp, and the seamless construction between handle and blade ismore sanitary. This knife's wedge-shaped handle is particularly wellengineered for grasping securely with a relaxed hand. Global recommendsusing a ceramicsharpener or a diamond steel instead of a metal sharpening steelfor its knives, supplemented by a synthetic whetstone, a ceramic whetstone, or a Shinkansen Sharpener.Global also makes a sharpening guide set soblades can be honed on a whetstone at the proper angle. Global knivesshould be hand washed to protect edges. They carry a lifetime warrantyagainst defects and breakage. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The PRIMO In Cutlery! - GLOBAL KNIVES
I recently purchased a whole set of these knives after doing MUCH research on various brands, materials they are made of, and general sturdiness and price.

YES, Global cutlery is EXPENSIVE! But compared to Wustof or Henkels, these kives outshine, outsparkle, and outperform them by a longshot. Comparable in price with Wustof and Henkels, for just a bit more money you can own the GOOD STUFF!

Global knives are made of one, solid, sturdy, but amazingly light piece of steel. Very balanced also! No worrying about wood or plastic handles, tangs or rivets here, nor cleaning! They clean up like a breeze.

I love my knives and I know they will last me a lifetime. Remember, friends... You get what you pay for and these beautiful and professional knives are worth their weight in gold!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST
I've worked quite a few kitchens in my life most of them being Japanese restaraunts so I have a little bit of experience with knives and I must say... this Global knife is one of the best I've had the opportunity to use. I first heard about Global in the book "Kitchen Confidential" (Which is a great book, and if you have worked a kitchen or two in your life you will relate to a lot of the stories!). I checked this knife out at the local cutlery store and was immediately impressed. Although not as hefty as my regular 8" chef's, it's balance was amazing. The shaped handle made handling of this knife a true pleasure. The blade truly holds it's edge, and slices and chops like a dream. You will not be dissapointed with this knife, and I have no doubt it will become your knife of choice when working in the kitchen.

One note, although the company recommends using their diamond steel to sharpen due to how hard the steel in the knife is, I found that using my regular steel on occassion works just fine. I know I'm wearing my steel down a little quicker but it realigned the edge just fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars The things you can CUT with this knife....
Yeah, it IS expensive, but knives are man's prime tool with which to rework the world for his intention. While this is an excellent food preparation knife, I have also found that it is a brilliant and expensive tool for the irresponsible, like myself, to pry open jammed doors or open up boxes of books from Amazon. And it STILL makes me happy when it cuts the heck out of some salmon filet or prime loin.

The handle is very nice. You won't slip by sweating on this knife. No siree.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great all purpose blade, but consider the 8 inch chef too.
This was my first Global knife, and I've since bought four more. After three years of daily use it's still as sharp as ever, with only a few passes over a diamond steel occasionally. (If you are going to use Global knives, bite the bullet and get a diamond steel.)Global knives are frightenly sharp when they are new, even the serrated knives like the bread knife, which appear more benign. Be careful with these things until you get used to them, even if you've had good German knives before. (No, you won't cut your fingers,you'll be naturally cautious about that, you'll nick an arm or a wrist by brushing the blade, something I never even knew could happen until I got my 10 inch Global chef.)

The eight inch Oriental chef is a great little chopper and slicer, and the very wide blade is nice for lifting slices, but do think about the traditional 8 inch Global chef as your mainstay knife if you're only getting one. This one is balanced for a "push" stroke, rather than the pull stroke that most Western cooks use, the handle is a little high for a good rocker chop -- at least until you get used to it, and the back of the blade is curved, so if you're used to scraping your cutting board with the spine of your blade, this one won't do the trick. Your veggies will escape under the curve. The blade is hollow ground (beveled on both sides) not single sided like the denba, so you don't have to worry about being left or right handed.

None of this makes the knife a bad one, but it does take some getting used to and frankly, I'm more comfortable with the 8 inch chef as my mainstay knife. (The 10 inch chef is a bit of a monster for most tasks. Great for cutting a pizza all the way across in a single rock, but, well... I guess I shouldn't admit I use my good knives on pizza, huh?) You won't go wrong with a Global knife, it's just a question of which one feels right for you.

One more thing: these knives look like modern art, if that sort of thing matters to you. You can see the quality in them as well as feel it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great knife but Beware on steeling it
Cuts like a Samurai blade quality, and doesn't need to steel as frequent as the Henckels/ Wusthof knives. It has excellent weight for a medium sized hand. However, the handles get quite slippery when wet, so keep your hands clean and dry while using this knife for safety. Also, if you plan on saving money on getting a cheaper steel, DON'T, because this Global blade is much harder than the Henckels/Wusthof blades; a qood quality Diamond coated or ceramic steel is a must, or if you really like the steel design, get the Global steel which can cost quite a bit. Overall, this is a good quality knife with proper care and attention needed, just like a Samurai would do to get use to his sword. ... Read more

High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and "face-ground" with a long taper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than even the best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrive from the factory razor-sharp. Balance is achieved by injecting a precise amount of sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a blade is maneuvered. A finger notch between blade and handle provides safety.Although Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who like hefty knives, its original knives have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. This knife, however, is relatively heavy. Thick at the back, the broad, 7-inch blade, designed for butchering fish and chopping hard vegetables, carries enough weight to chop through fish bones. For clean, low-friction cutting, the blade is tapered to an edge on only one side so it's even sharper than other Global knives.

Stainless-steel handles are Global's most striking feature. They're molded to fit the hand and dimpled to resist slipping. Smaller around than many European-style handles, they're easy for small-handed cooks to grasp and seamless for sanitation. Global recommends using a ceramic sharpener or a diamond steel instead of a metal sharpening steel for its knives, supplemented by a synthetic whetstone, a ceramic whetstone, or a Shinkansen sharpener. Global also makes a Sharpening Guide Rail so blades can be honed on a whetstone at the proper angle. Global knives should be hand washed to protect edges.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a Blade!
As a professional chef, I would buy this knife again and again. The factory edge is amazing, I have never seen a knife as sharp as this, right out of the box. Even with the Deba having only one side it is extremely easy to sharpen. I have used all the major knife brands and I find the steel in all of Global knives to be of the best quality.You can not go wrong if you purchase of this knife!

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite knife
This knife is simply a joy to use. It's nicely weighted, but not heavy. It feels great in your hand. And it's the sharpest knife I've cut with. It is beveled only on the right side (the side you see in the photo), while the other side is flat. This shape causes what you are cutting to glide neatly off to the right. The Deba is especially fine for cutting fish for sushi or sashimi, or even that basil chiffonade. I find myself using it for almost everything. As long as you're not left-handed, you won't regret this purchase. ... Read more
