Global’s G-2 chef’s knife is a stellar combination of ergonomic design, extreme functionality and aesthetics. Crafted completely out of steel, the knife is seamless, and thus especially hygienic. The G-2 chef’s knife features a sharp tip and a wide blade, making it an extremely versatile tool for chopping, slicing and cutting all kind of ingredients. The width of the blade enables you to use both hands to enforce and control the movement when chopping. Designed by Komin Yamada, the knife is equally perfect for both domestic and professional use.

Global knives are hand-made in Japan, following the age-old traditions of Japanese sword-smiths. The unique, top-quality steel alloy CROMOVA 18 used in Global’s razor-sharp blades consists of chrome, molybdenum and vanadium. The extremely tough and durable material also fights rust and corrosion.
