Global G2 Knives Review

Global G2 knives are 8-inch chef’s knives.  They are a great fit as an all purpose knife for many, as they come sharp, stay sharp, are easy to maneuver, and take less effort to use.  The 8-inch length also contributes to its versatility, as it is long enough to be used for a variety of purposes.

One of the best features of the Global G2 Knives is the thin blades.  The thin blades help make the knife lighter and thus easier and more effortless to handle.  Another benefit of the thin blade is that it helps preserve the integrity of the ingredients being cut, which is especially useful when cutting and chopping delicate ingredients.  Additionally, the thin blade can make it easier to cut precisely and make thinner slices of items like cheese or meat.

The lightweight of the Global G2 Knives not only comes from the thin blades, but also the hollow sand balanced handles.  The hollow handles reduce the weight of the knife, while the sand helps provide an excellent balance between the blade and handle.  The lightweight and sand balanced handles make the Global G2 Knives more effortless to handle, which is really appreciated when undertaking big tasks, such as preparing a big feast or working long shifts in a kitchen.

The dimpled and molded handle help makes the Global G2 Knives comfortable to use.  The handles also have a smaller diameter than typical knives, so they are especially nice for small hands.  The dimples help make the Global G2 Knife safer, as they reduce slippage.  This feature is most appreciated when cutting watery or juicy ingredients, especially since the Global G2 Knives are very sharp and slippage could cause a significant injury.  The molded handle also contributes to a safe grip as it helps make the knife easier to handle and feel like an extension of your hand.

Global G2 Knives are made with high-tech CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, which is a blend of chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium.  The 18 percent chromium content in the stainless steel helps Global G2 Knives resist staining, so they continue to look great.  The molybdenum and vanadium help keep the knives edges sharp longer, so they continue to be sharp and effective with less frequent sharpening.

Keeping a Global G2 Knife in optimum condition is pretty easy, especially compared to inferior knives.  For one, you can keep it looking great by simply washing and drying it by hand immediately after use.  Just avoid using soaps with citrus, as they can discolor the stainless steel.   To keep the knife sharp, you can sharpen it at home using a diamond steel, whetstones, and/or a water wheel sharpener.  While it may take some time to get the hand of sharpening the knives on your own, you do not have to do it as often with a Global Knife since they retain their sharpness longer than other knives.
