Global - G-Series 8" Chef's Knife
Bread is the perfect side to bring a meal together, but you certainly can’t serve a whole loaf in a single piece - so you need a quality chef’s knife to slice up your bread neatly. This offering from Global is 8.5’’ in length, and it has the hollow handle design that is so familiar to those with experience using Global knives. The handles of Global knives are hollowed and then filled as needed with sand to develop perfect balance from end to end.
In addition to balance, Global knives are also known for the CROMOVA high carbon steel that is used in their construction. This material allows the edge to stay sharp over the long run, while remaining soft enough to have the edge sharpened successfully when needed. For a unique bread knife that will be up to the task of making clean slices whenever you pull it out, consider adding the Global 8.5’’ Bread Knife to your collection.
Global Knives are made from the finest stainless-steel material. The blades utilize Cromova 18 high carbon stainless steel, ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell 56°-58° HRC which holds a razor-sharp edge longer than any other steel and resists rust stains and corrosion.
Smooth contours and seamless construction eliminate food and dirt traps, offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene. The contours provide a smooth, efficient cutting motion and steady, comfortable grip.
Stainless-steel hollow handles are perfectly balanced to offset the weight of each blade and textured, providing an excellent grip and balance in the hand.
Edges extend ¼” up the blade and are ground to a straight point, rather than beveled, to provide a dramatically sharper blade that keeps its edge longer
Iconic dots on the knife’s handle represent the seven virtues of the Bushido from the traditional Japanese Samurai code of honor.
Designed by the skilled Japanese craftsman Komin Yamada. Yamada designed the first Global knives in 1985. He was to develop a range of knives truly new and revolutionary, harnessing the best materials available and the most modern design concepts and techniques.
Global knives are designed to appeal to the professional and amateur chefs, to be comfortable and easy to handle and surpass their most demanding requirements.
Professional cooks worldwide praise Global cutlery for its perfect balance, light weight and seamless construction. The knives are forged by hand in Japan, using stainless steel that is hardened in a process inspired by the crafting of ancient samurai swords.
The two signature characteristics of a Global knife are: its blade and balance of the handle. Unifying function and design, these distinctive Japanese knives combine ergonomic handles with triple-layered steel blades that maintain their exceptionally sharp edges. Where most knives feature beveled edges ,Global knives bost large, prominent edges visible to the naked eye, that extend a quarter inch up from the tip of the blade. These edges are then groud to a straight point, resulting in a dramatically sharper blade that keeps its edge longer.
To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. First, it is more precise than using a tang and a bolster and second, Asian knives traditionally do not have bolsters.

Most efficient bread knife. - This is the most efficient bread knife I've ever used. It is extremely sharp, heavy, well balanced and will slice through a loaf with just two thrusts. The angle of the handle saves knuckles from scraping on the board or counter. I have purchased, and tried other brands, but Global is number one. Very happy with my purchase. Would highly recommend to other customers.
