he G-5 18cm Vegetable Knife is inspired by traditional Japanese Usuba knives, popular amongst professional chefs in Japan as a specialist vegetable knife. The idea behind the shape of the blade is that it encourages a straight up down chopping motion where the full blade length meets the chopping board so it will go straight through the whole vegetable.
The G-5 is made from CROMOVA 18 stainless steel, specially developed by GLOBAL as it holds a razor-sharp edge and resists rust, stains and corrosion. Ice tempered and hardened to Rockwell C56-58, each knife is carefully weighted by filling the handles with sand to achieve the optimum weight and perfect balance. Other unique features include its smooth contours and seamless construction which eliminates food and dirt traps offering the ultimate in safety and hygiene. The acute 15-degree angle cutting edge provides unsurpassed performance and superior edge retention.
