Global GF-33 8 1/4-Inch, 21-cm Heavyweight Chef's Knife
A good chef's knife is the backbone in any quality kitchen. With a good knife, a skilled chef can create masterful dishes with ultimate precision, while,
with a lower quality knife, prep time can take longer, it can be more difficult to reach the same level of meticulousness with ingredients, and ultimately,
cooking well is harder on the chef.
Just like a master painter needs a brush to match his skill, so too does a top level chef need the highest quality knives to create his culinary works of
art, and the Global 8 1/4" Heavyweight Chef's Knife fits the bill perfectly. Global Cutlery may have only been established in 1985, but its products have
won numerous Best-Of awards from many different culinary books and magazines nearly every year since its inception. The company is located in Japan and
bases its knife designs on ancient Japanese traditions.
While, to the untrained eye, a knife can look just like a knife, the Global 8 ¼" Heavyweight Chef's Knife has a number of features unique to the company
that make it stand out.
Those features are just a few of the more prominent reasons why the Global Heavyweight Chef's Knife is one of the premier culinary tools available today.
The weight and balance are specifically designed to reach amazing levels of comfort and precision. The materials were meticulously chosen for their
durability to ensure that the knife will retain a razor-sharp edge. You won't be disappointed if you choose to add the Global Heavyweight Chef's Knife to
your kitchen collection!
- Balance - Global Cutlery takes a large portion of inspiration from ancient Samurai swords, which had perfect balance. The Chef's Knife is a precise 8 and ¼
inch utensil weighing an exact 15.7 ounces, and it achieves a level of balance unparalleled in most other kitchen knives. In addition to its
physical specifications, the knife's balance is achieved by its combination of steel blade and handle.
- Blade - Global knives are made using a precise combination of chromium, vanadium, and other metals to achieve a stainless steel that is nearly impervious
to rust and decay, and that will retain its sharp edge throughout hundreds of uses. And should the unexpected ever happen and the Chef's Knife ever
become marred or broken, Global Cutlery provides a lifetime warranty on all of their products.
- Handle - Unlike many knives, which have handles made of hardened rubber or plastic, the Global Chef's Knife has a handle made out of dimpled stainless
steel. Their method ensures more exact balance, and a more comfortable and safer grip. The handle is also smaller in diameter than most other
knives of similar size, making it easier to grip for chefs with smaller hands, and it reduces the overall weight for an already hefty knife.
- Longevity - Due to the Chef's Knife's high quality design and construction, it is an investment that is guaranteed to last for years and still perform with
the same standards as when it was first purchased.
