The G-46 is Global's full sized Santoku knife. Santoku is a Japanese word literally meaning 'three ways' and is used to describe the three cutting tasks that the knife is designed to do; slicing, dicing and mincing. The shape of the knife makes it brilliant for Western style cooking as the blade is flat, deep and powerful, which makes the knife really good for cutting up lots of heavy root vegetables, such as sweet potato, squashes and celeriac.
The GS-11 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 has a medium sized blade at 11cm which is good for filleting small fish such as sea bass. The blade is also flexible which makes it suitable for this purpose.
The GS-38 is a beautiful little paring knife useful for lots of little tasks in the kitchen. It is the hollow handle alternative to the GSF-15 and often found in more recent sets. The hollow handle has an ergonomic shape making this little knife comfortable to handle .
