Any good chef's knife should be sharp, durable and ergonomic. Global knives are are all three; they're also some of the weirdest looking knives we've ever seen.
Global Japanese knives are made from a single piece of proprietary Cromova 18 steel, a secretive blend of metals. Unlike the standard VG-10 steel used in other Japanese knives and German knives, the Cromova 18 steel is less likely to chip, corrosion-resistant and truly stains less than other stainless steel. The knife's holey handle is hollow and filled with sand to be incredibly well-balanced.
The Global chef's knife is a Japanese-style gyuto knife, which is the ideal choice for a variety of kitchen tasks. For a limited time, the eight-inch Global chef's knife is on sale for $83, nearly half-off retail.
