Ah, Global… You either love ’em or hate ’em.
Global ushered in a new era in kitchen cutlery 15 years or so ago, introducing the world to Japanese steel and their resulting razor-sharp knives.
If you like a good story, you can read more about that in our article on the Rise and Fall of the Great Knife Makers.
This knife, Global’s infamous G-2, is known for its light weight, sharp blade and futuristic sand-balanced steel handle.
The blade is made of stainless steel containing molybdenum and vanadium for edge retention.
It has no bolster, as many of the traditional European blades do. This is a good thing, since that bolster can get in the way of resharpening.
The handles are on the small side, made of textured stainless steel. If you prefer a heavier, more traditional feel, Global also makes a “heavy weight” version of this knife. We’ll link to that one below.
Global makes our Best $350 Kitchen Knives and this knife is a great piece from that set.
