Global Knives Review: Are These Classic Japanese Knives The Best?

Written by Peter Allen on . Posted in Cutlery

I remember the first time I saw a Global knife. The unique metal handle and simple, no-frills design made a pretty big impact on me. I was even more shocked to discover that the spartan grip was incredibly comfortable in my hand. I had assumed that the hard, porous exterior of the grip would react harshly to my skin. I was wrong. Instead, I witnessed a well-designed kitchen tool that somehow managed to weave together unique aesthetics with all of the comfort and usability you’d expect from a high-end chef’s knife.
