Knife Sharpening 101

GLOBAL knives come out of the factory in Japan with a very sharp edge and CROMOVA 18, GLOBAL’S unique blade material, ensures that this sharpness will be maintained longer than most other knives. However, Global knives need to be sharpened from time to time to maintain their keen edge. As a general rule, the best sharpening tool for an individual is one that he or she is going to use. Each tool is different and may be easy or difficult to use depending on the individual and their level of experience or skill.

GLOBAL recommends periodically sharpening your knives using either a waterstone or ceramic stone. In between stone sharpening’s, it is recommended that you use the Global fine ceramic or diamond rod to keep the edges of your knives aligned. Global serrated knives do not need to be sharpened.

No matter how sharp a knife is when you first purchase, with everyday use, the blade will eventually lose its edge. Watch the video below for tips on how to retain and return your knives’ sharp edges.
