The Japanese call the traditional western chef's knife a 'Gyutoh' which translates to 'cow sword' indicating that knives of this shape would be used for cutting meat. Because of the supreme sharpness offered by Japanese steel and the familiar shape these knives gained a huge following in the west as cooks knives. The half bolstered construction makes this knife lighter than a traditional western cook's knife but the cutting performance is outstanding and allows this knife to be used for almost any purpose. The Global 24cm cooks knife has a broad back which tapers towards the tip just like a European knife. This extra bulk makes the knife very strong and powerful while its length makes it a popular choice with professional chefs. The 24cm blade gives you the scope to make long clean slices when preparing meat, fish or larger vegetables. This cooks knife has a larger contoured G series handle in proportion to the rest of the knife. The handle is hollow and filled with sand for lightness, balance and poise.
The Global G series consists of their large cook's knives and specialist blades. There really is a knife for every purpose. Each G series knife has a symmetrical rounded handle suitable for left or right handed users. The handles are hollow and filled with sand which allows the most precise control of the poise and balance of the knife.
