The Global G2 Cooks Knife And Why You Need One

If you needed just one knife for your kitchen go for a quality chef’s knife, and if you are going for Global we’d recommend you buy the G-2. After 30 years of its existence, it still stands out as the benchmark in the Global range to which all other upmarket kitchen knife brands are compared. The G-2 is a larger, longer bladed knife with weighted hollow handles. It’s made from Global’s proprietary stainless steel CROMOVA 18 and sharpened to a 15 degree angle. It has won dozens of awards over the years, like for example winning the Restaurant Magazines Readers Choice Award 8 years in a row, testifying to the popularity of the blade. If you’re going to buy one knife, it should be the best-selling Global G-2.

An all-purpose tool

If you’re going to buy one knife, it should be the best-selling Global G-2. It’s a chef’s knife, which means it’s an all-purpose tool that covers just about all of your chopping needs. It can slice, dice, chop, and really do anything that you need.

The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The blade is made of molybdenum, vanadium, and chromium in a proprietary combo called Cromova 18. It is sharpened on both sides, like Western knives, but to an extremely acute 15-degree angle rather than a beveled edge. You will notice this signature geometry as soon as you take the knife out of its box. Out of the box, the G-2 is extremely sharp and will slice through vegetables and meat with ease, even for very thin slices. For everyday chopping and dicing, this knife really is as sharp as they come.

The G-2 is lightweight, with small inset dimples to help with grip, and has a nice balance in the hand. Built into the handle is a rounded finger-notch to give more control. The knife handle is hollow, but partially filled with a special, very fine grained sand that provides an even  counter-weight to balance the knife perfectly when held in hand. These samurai-inspired attributes mean the G-2 feels like it disappears into your hand when you use it.
