Global Cutlery Review

While each type of Global Cutlery is slightly different, they most have the general features listed above.  These features are part of what makes Global Cutlery great for using the kitchen whether you just prepare food for your household or are a professional chef.  Global Cutlery can be a great investment even just for your home kitchen, as the knives really do seem to last forever as long as you take good care of them and sharpen them with a whetstone as needed.

Once you get used to using Global Cutlery it is pretty hard to go back to other knives even the German brands.  Although, it does mostly come down to personal preference about the feel of a knife in your hand, Global Cutlery’s features make them appealing for a wide variety of preferences.  There is the Global 7-inch Oriental Chef’s Knife that is pretty versatile for most if not all kitchen cutting needs.  There are also Global Cutlery sets such as the Global 9 piece Knife Set with Block, for those that prefer to use different sizes and types of knifes for different cutting situations.

The thin sharp blades of Global Cutlery allows you to easily cut a variety of foods without ruining the flavor.  This is especially useful when cutting delicate foods, so you maintain their integrity and flavor.

The lightweight and well-balanced features along with the sharpness of Global Cutlery help make the knives feel like an extension of your hand by making cutting almost effortless.  These features really stand out when cutting difficult foods and during long cooking sessions, as fatigue is minimized.  The dimpled handles also help with the grip of Global Cutlery, although since they are all one piece seamless stainless steel the handle can get slippery when wet.

One more feature that really makes Global Cutlery a great investment is the Molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel they are made from.  This blend includes 18% chromium, which helps keep the knives looking great with their stain resistance.  This helps the Global Cutlery continue to look great even after years of use.  Additionally, the molybdenum and vanadium helps make Global Cutlery long lasting by providing excellent edge retention, so you do not need to sharpen the knives as often ones made with inferior quality metals.

Global Cutlery does have to be sharpened differently than the types of knives typically used in Western countries, but the sharpness you get from Global Cutlery and the fact the knives can go longer before sharpening is necessary again makes it worth learning to sharpen Global Cutlery with a whetstone.  You can even get a Global brand whetstone, such as the Global Two-Sided Sharpening Stone to keep your Global Cutlery  sharp.
