Amazon.com Review

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's original knives havethinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives,Global also makes a European-style heavyweight line for cooks whoprefer hefty cutlery—-such as this 4-1/2-inch utility knife. Globalalso dispensed with bolsters on most of its knives, including this one.Most Global knives have hollow handles, but the handle on this knife issolid.

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 finest paring knife you can aquire
I have been an avid amateur cook for 25 years and have worked with a wide variety of kitchen tools during that period. Knives that I have utilized range from the "cheap but effective" to the finest products from Henckels. But the knives I use daily are the Globals', and the one that I cannot be without is this one. Although it is designated by the manufacturer as a Utility knife, it is simply the best paring knife I have ever used, and I've gone through a lot of them. Its razor sharpness is easily maintained, it has a perfect heft and balance, and it is exactly the "right" size and shape. It just feels great. Sorry if I sound so effusive -- I am not connected with the Global Corporation in any way -- but I would recommend this knife to any serious cook who has exacting standards in kitchenware. ...

Global knives are appreciated for their sleek, cutting-edge design and quality stainless-steel edges, and this 5-inch utility knife proudly continues the Global tradition. The razor-sharp edge cuts with striking efficiency, resulting in a neatly sliced tomato, cheese slice, or lime. The blade is constructed of ice-tempered and hardened stainless steel, and its edge stays sharp far longer than similar blades while resisting rust, stains, and corrosion. Put a Global knife in your hand and you'll notice its lightweight comfort and delightful balance, which is especially handy when slicing multiple fruits or veggies for a large gathering. The knife features thin blades and a hollow handle, and it should fit in many (if not most) knife blocks. Hand washing is recommended. --Rivers Janssen ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Tomato killer
I was looking for an "offset serrated knife" as mentioned by Bourdain, and this fits the bill. Outstanding veggie slicer and all-around food prep instrument. Even over-ripe tomatoes, the kind with a still tough skin and insides soft as pudding, are no match for it. Besides the small and handy size, the handle design means that the blade meets the cutting board before your knuckles. When it finally begins to dull, several swipes on a good steel will bring the edge back to rights.

4-0 out of 5 stars More than good looks
To be honest, I didn't love it at first, it didn't feel right in my hand. But I've been using it for a while now, and to be honest, the more I use it the more I like it. Its very sharp, keeps its edge and seems relatively easy to sharpen. BTW I'm a professional chef and use my tools hard. I think I like this knife better than my Grand Prix's and am thinking of buying a full size chefs knife next to see how I like it.

This knife is one of my favorites now, even replacing my Whustoff off set serated as one that always finds its way into my hand. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Universal knife
I really have enjoyed using this knife. It is a great universal knife. It is nice to have when one needs to cut through chicken skin for deboning. I also like the design of the handel.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's almost impossible to sharpen Global serrated knives
Global knives are great! and for the straight edged one's Global offers enough equipment to keep them nice and sharp. But for the serrated edged knives(and Global has such hard steel). It is almost impossible to resharpen them again. When ever I buy a a serrated knife I am going to stick with more affordable stamped knives by Henckels, Forschner, or Wusthof that don't cost a fortune if you can't resharpen them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but unnecessary
I bought this knife along with a few other Global knives and ended up returning it. This is not to say that this is a bad knife but I found that it was unnecessary alongside the rest of the Global knives I purchased. The non-serrated knifes are so sharp that there were practicaly no instances where I needed to use this knife. I did end-up keeping the 8" serrated bread knife but as long as you have that one, you don't really need another serrated knives.

I like being able to sharpen my knives frequently and this isn't very easy to do with serrated knives. A special tool and technique is required and the whole process is very time consuming. In addition, make sure that you use a ceramic sharpener on all global knives. Its supposed to have a different grit that is better for them. Kyocera (ceramic knife manufacturer) makes one specifically for Global but they are quite expensive.

5-0 out of 5 stars One by One I'm Turning Global
My Whustoff offset serated is usually my turn to knife, I've been a devoted user of it for years. But I recently tried out this Global offset serrated and I love it. Its so beautifully sharp. ... Read more

Global knives are appreciated for their sleek, cutting-edge design and quality stainless-steel edges, and this 3-inch tomato knife proudly continues the Global tradition. The serrated edge cuts with striking efficiency, resulting in a neatly sliced tomato that doesn't spill its pulp all over the counter. The blade is constructed of ice-tempered and hardened stainless steel, and its edge stays sharp far longer than similar blades while resisting rust, stains, and corrosion. Put a Global knife in your hand and you'll notice its lightweight comfort and delightful balance, which is especially handy when slicing multiple tomatoes for a large gathering.

3-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Knife, Just Too Short for my Tomato
I am a big fan of Global knives. They are wonderfully balanced, expertly sharp, and heaven to hold. This knife is no exception. I have quite a collection, myself. However, to call this knife a "Tomato Knife," at only 3inches long, is nuts in my book; that is, of course, unless you're talking about cherry tomatoes! The knife does glide through the skin effortlessly, as another has said, and the meat of the tomato is certainly not a challenge for the knife, either. But it's so short that the knife can get hung-up down in the tomato when you're trying to cut through. I wondered about this, but I purchased it anyway. It's great on avacados: if you use it to cut them in half the long way, and then use the back of the knife to cross-cut the insides of the halves, then turn the halves inside out, and scrape out the little squares of the avacado meat. But if you really want a great serrated knife that's long enough to cut through tomatoes with ease and room to spare, get the Global 6-inch Serrated Utility Knife. It's a must have, anyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding!!!
This is the most amazing knife I have ever owned! I ve purchased Henckles Twinstars, Sabatier;which is pure junk! Out of all the knives Ive owned none have sliced with the mastery of these knives. I enjoy the pleasure of slicing and dicing with such serene knives. I have since decided to sell my other non global knives and replace them with all Global this is quite a bold move as I consider myself thrifty with a nickle but the quality of this knife has beckon me fourth to a place where I must in fact splurge for the quality that i now know I do not want to live without. I simply cannot quantify how significant the difference in quality between these knives and Henckles Twinstar i really wasnt expecting to open a Pandora's box of spending. It actually happened quite accidently in my wife whom loves tomatos could not find a knife to cut them properly with and well the other person who reviewed this knife stated as bold fact it got the job done like no other. I must admit this knife is truly as silly as it might sound the "EXCALIBER of knives."

5-0 out of 5 stars Excessive, but excessively cool!
I admit, a high-end knife that is meant to cut only tomatoes seems like an excessive purchase. But I love mine! It effortlessly glides through delicate tomato skin without mushing the tomato into pulp. It's also great for other fruits and vegetables that have a thin but tough to cut skin, like figs or eggplant. A great addition to your Global arsenal, but do buy some a few of the multi-tasking knives first. ... Read more
