For some chefs. Global Knives are too light and too delicate for their tasks. They Prefer the heavier, chunkier feel of many of the European classic knives. They want to use their Cooks Knives for tougher work than just slicing and dicing, so they can deal with bones, joints and so on. They crave something that feels more substantial and that avoids discomfort or pain caused by intensive use of a knife with a very slender 'spine' to grip. This knife is the full forged chef's knife with a 4mm thick spine which is a full 2mm thicker than the original G-2, additionally, the forged construction gives it a weightier feel in the hand with its 20.5cm fluted blade. This special product comes with a complimentary leather blade cover to protect your knife.
