If you needed just one knife for your kitchen go for a quality chefs knife and if you are going for Global buy the G-2/AN. The G-2/AN is the best-selling Japanese kitchen knife ever made! It can slice, dice, chop, and really do anything that you need. A multi-purpose all round blade that is included in virtually every knife set produced. It has won dozens of awards over the years testifying to the popularity of the blade. Global (represented by the G-2/AN) has won the Which? Best Knife category 3 times in a row.
The G-9/AN is Global's classically shaped bread knife. It is a specialist knife, really for use with bread only. The teeth are made to saw through the crust of bread but could also be used for some tough meats, for example crackling.
The GS-11/AN is one of the more popular knives in the Global range and is frequently found in many of the sets where it fills the role of filleting, carving and 'general purpose' knife, hence its name. The GS-11/AN has a medium sized blade at 15cm which is good for filleting small fish such as sea bass. The blade is also flexible which makes it suitable for this purpose.
One of the best selling knives in the GS range, the GS-3/AN is a medium sized cook's knife that will perform a variety of kitchen tasks. It has a nice medium sized blade good for chopping, slicing and dicing and is useful whether you want to cut up vegetables or slice meat. It is really the smallest chef's knife notwithstanding the GS-1 which has a slightly different shape of blade.
The GS-5 is the little brother of the G-5 vegetable chopper, with the same shape of blade in a smaller proportion. These knives take their inspiration from Japanese Usaba (Vegetable Knives), the relatively flat parts of the blade are designed to chop through fruit and vegetables and come into full contact with the chopping board and give a clean cut.
The GSF-15/AN is the most popular petty knife in the Global range and is very often found in set combinations. Its little 8cm blade is good for all those small kitchen tasks, peeling, cutting fruit and small delicate kitchen work. This knife can cover all the tasks of the other GSF range and is a classic all-rounder.
