The G Series of Global knives is a classic collection of large longer bladed knives with weighted hollow handles, used for general food preparation. All knives are made in two parts with the blade and the handle being welded together. The blade itself is made of Cromova18, Globals special blend of Molybdenum Vanadium steel, which makes the knife hard compared to European blades and able to retain a decent edge for a long time. Globals special feature though is that the knives are ground down to a very acute angle (15 Degrees) down the face of each side of the blade. Rather than having a beveled edge, this is how Global knives are renowned for being so sharp and for staying sharp for such a long time. Global were one of the first Japanese brands into the UK market and have built up a cult following and the brand is well recognized. Always wash your knives by hand, dry thoroughly and never put them in a dishwasher. All Global knives are covered by the manufacturers guarantee against faults and defects. Knives should be stored in a block or other protective case to protect the blades and always kept out of reach of children. Knives cannot be sold to any person under the age of 18.
