Using a bad, blunt-edged knife can be seriously frustrating. Life is hard as it is, so no one wants to be further stressed out while preparing your food. This 8 inch chef’s knife from Global can erase that pain in one fell swoop.
Global Kitchen Knives Review: The Notable Features of the G-2 Chef’s Knife
If your knife is rusting away as time goes by, it is probably made of carbon steel. Carbon steel is infamous for being susceptible to rust despite it being known for strength and durability.
That’s no problem for the Global G-2, as from the blade to the handle, it is alloyed with molybdenum/vanadium which creates a near-perfect material that’s completely rust-resistant. And you know what a stainless steel screams: corrosion resistance, easy cleanup, and last but not least, an attractive look.
And this knife, though looking and feeling solid, is still incredibly lightweight thanks to the sand-filled hollow handle.
Ability to Retain Sharpness
The first thing that comes to our mind about a knife’s best feature would be its sharpness. Who doesn’t want to be able to fillet a salmon smoothly or evenly sized, neatly cut pieces of meat or veggie? Of course it will require some cutting skill, but having a sharp knife can make it a lot easier. We found that the Global G-2 knives can slide through just about any foodstuffs that we could get our hands on like butter.
A unique part that makes the Global G-2 worth the money is its ability to retain sharpness. That is obviously a result of it being a strong stainless steel that needs minimal maintenance as a result.
As mentioned above, the Global G-2’s handle is also made of stainless steel. It is molded and dimpled, making it easier for you to grip, especially with your hands wet after washing food ingredients or dishes.
Though a little bit pricey compared to other kitchen knives, with all of the aforesaid features, the Global G-2 chef knife is definitely worth considering to be added to your “good kitchenware collection”. Not to mention, it also includes a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage.
