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. Although Global's original knives have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives, Global also makes a European-style "heavyweight" line for cooks who prefer hefty cutlery--like this 3-inch paring knife for cleaning and peeling vegetables and fruits. Global also dispensed with bolsters on most of its knives, including this one. Most Global knives have hollow handles, but the handle on this knife is solid.

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. They carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars INDISPENSABLE IN THE KITCHEN
If there's one item most of us can't get along without in the kitchen it's a paring knife. It's a simple tool but necessary.

Pluses for this knife are the three inch blade - longer and it may not be manageable and the non-slip handle. Show me the person who can pare vegetables and fruit and keep their hands dry, thus an easy to grip handle that won't slide is a good safety precaution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Razor sharp and beautiful balance
Having been a Sabatier fan all my life, I was a little skeptical when I saw some of my chefs using these Japanese knives, but having handled them I decided to try one at home. I love this knife. It is beautifully balanced and takes an edge easily. I use it all the time and will get around to getting some larger ones when I can afford them! Right now, this is my all purpose knife for all veg prep and sundry general slicing and paring. It is no good for chopping, though they make plenty that are. Highly recommended. ... Read more

Although Global's original knives have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives, Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who prefer hefty cutlery--like this 2-1/2-inch bird's beak knife, whose curved blade, however, is thin for precisely peeling and shaping vegetables and fruits. Global dispensed with bolsters on most of its knives, including this one. Most Global knives have hollow handles, but the handle on this knife is solid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can go from kitchen to garden and back, over & over!
Among my assorted bird's beak paring knives, this one has a special place. There's no hiding place for any transfer of salmonella bacteria from poultry to produce, for this knife is made of a single piece of steel, and the solid handle has good weight. (Not all knives in this line have a solid handle.) Furthermore, it stands up to use and abuse, unlike any other knife I've ever had.

I bought mine in a specialty knife store (which has since gone out of business) close to ten years ago. After a nameless family member helped out in the kitchen, it seemed to have disappeared, and I mourned for this little knife. Turns out said family member had accidentally dumped it in the composter, along with a small mountain of vegetable waste. I boiled it and it rejoined the household.

Comfortable to hold, it does a variety of paring tasks well in the kitchen. Slipperiness mentioned in reviews of other knives in this line has not been a problem. Weight and balance are excellent. I like the completeness with which it can be cleaned.

If you have a kitchen or flower garden, you'll find good uses for it outdoors as well. I grow edible ginger, as well as the kind with flowers. For cutting the rhizome from the plant, this can't be beat. I also use it when it's time to thin the heliconias and strip old leaves off lilies.

In perusing reviews about other knives in this line, there appears to be concern about sharpening the Japanese-made steel. I use a Chantry knife sharpener and find it brings this knife back to an acceptable edge.

BOTTOM LINE: If you like the bird's beak style of paring knife, you are likely to find a use for this one. Amazon's price is excellent. I paid about twice the amount and would recommend it even at that price. If you've never tried a bird's beak paring knife, this one is reasonably priced and especially versatile for the reasons mentioned. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice but !
Very nice knife. It is sharp, really sharp. Handle feels good.
One problem with me. The width of the balde near handle is little too wide. It looks cute because of that. When I peel apple, the balde is too close to my thumb. I may not be bothered with it if it is ordinary dull knife. But with this kind sharpness I do not feel safe. I hope I could delvelope safer technique sooner.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great knife!
I bought this knife after it was recommended in the book Kitchen Confidential. The knife is razor sharp, well balanced and it's very comfortable in the hand. Also, I accidently nicked myself with it -- I was shocked both by my own stupidity and how flawlessly the cut healed because the knife was so sharp!

4-0 out of 5 stars What a nice knife!
You hold Global knives different than European knives--like you would hold a Chinese cleaver. If you do a lot of Asian cooking, you probably hold knives this way, but it is different than your typical European knives. That said, I just wish Amazon carried the rest of the large collection of Global knives. I love my 4" paring knife. It is a little smaller to fit in small hands, but it fits in my larger hands nicely as well. It has a very sharp edge that stays sharper longer than my Henckels knives. It is super easy to sharpen with a good diamond steel (much easier than European knives). I would give it 5 stars except the look is a little funky, and they are priced on the high side as well as hard to find. I hope to replace my Four Stars with these over time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super Knives!
I received three Global knives for Christmas last year from my son. I can't believe how great they are. Almost a year later and all three are as sharp as they were when I received them. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about the kitchen. Yes, they are expensive, but they are probably the last knives you will ever have to buy. ... Read more

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 thaneven the best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are groundat a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrivefrom the factory razor sharp. Although Global also makes a heavyweightline for cooks who prefer hefty knives, its original knives--of whichthis 4-1/4-inch paring knife is an example--have thinner blades and arelighter than traditional European-style knives. Global also dispensedwith bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight. Global achievesbalance on these knives by injecting a precise amount of sand for aparticular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance iscontinuous, the sand flows inside the handle as the cook maneuvers theblade. A finger notch between blade and handle provides safety.

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.
