Many Japanese knife manufacturers traditionally produced a specialist knife with one-side grinding known as “Kiritsuke”. It required considerable skill to use effectively, and in many Japanese restaurants, only the head chef was allowed to use one. The Kiritsuke Knife thus became considered to be a symbol of expertise, status and seniority.

Product Details

Feeding off this tradition, Global® Knives proceeded to engineer a Double-Edged version of the Kiritsuke in their Classic series to fashion a very versatile knife. This knife can be used to perform most of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto or Chef’s Knife, but also those of the Nakiri and Sujihiki. It has less curvature than the typical Gyuto, making it less suited for “rocking action chopping” but perfect for a “push and pull” cutting action. The tip of the blade is particularly suitable for fine dicing and chopping.Originally developed for the Roux Scholarship judges, only a further 500 of these exclusive knives have been produced so far and are available on a first come first served basis!The Global G series of knives are Global ‘s classic collection of larger, longer bladed knives with weighted hollow handles. The Global G range knives all have Global’s famous Chromova18 blades and are sharpened to a 15 degree angle. The Global G range contains extremely diverse knives. There are 12 different chef’s knives alone in the range constituting a number of different sizes and shapes including the award winning G-2, which has been feature in numerous publications and won many awards.
