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 funny thing is, the Japanese do not really eat bread and so it is one of those products that they never really understood! If you look closely at the knife blade you will see that on the face of the knife, the teeth have a chamber whilst on the back of the knife, the face is flat.
The G-21 is a classically shaped boning knife and is considered to be the standard boning knife in the Global series, it is certainly the best selling Boning knife.. The knife has a long narrow blade with is tapered to a very fine point. This allows the user to work round the bones in joints of beef, lamp or pork and cut out a sizable piece of meat.
Global produce a few different styles of palette knives to compliment the Global collection. The GS-21 are the 'flat' palette knives, i.e. the blade lies horizontally with the handle of the knife. GS 21/8 is 20cm. It has a comfortable thumb rest for added control. The blades themselves are not sharp, but are flexible making these knives great for getting under any food that is frying like eggs or burgers, or for controlling runny food whilst cooking. You can also use these knives for spreading icing.
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 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.
