Santoku knives are a Japanese-style knife capable of handling all the basic cutting tasks you would use a chef's knife for. The blade is slightly shorter than a typical chef's knife, which makes it incredibly easy to maneuver in any size kitchen. It's hollow ground draws the work against the blade and toward the edge before the flat surfaces, which is why many knife lovers prefera hollow edge for slicing and skinning. This knife is ideal for a chef with smaller hands, or for a chef who simply prefers a more compact blade.
Global knives are cherished the world over. Sold in 86 countries and territories, Global knives set themselves apart from other knife lines by their unique design. Thier knives are actually ground on both sides so the blade tapers narrower and narrower right to the edge. The result is a razor sharp blade that remains sharp much longer and requires sharpening less frequently. Global uses a proprietary steel, Cromova 18 stainless steel for their knives. The Global blade does not have a bolster, so the entire length of the blade is a cutting edge. The Global handle is hollow and filled with sand to provide proper balance. It has a dimpled or dotted finish which is elegant and makes for a sure grip.
