This 6 piece knife block set has 5 everyday knives that are excellently suited to day to day cooking. Global Knives are made in Japan, and have a super sharp cutting edge. These knives are designed to last a lifetime, and with a little care they will. The acute 15 degree cutting edge is hand ground on to Cromova18 Stainless Steel with a Rockwell of C56-58. This means that the edge of the knife is easy to maintain and keep sharp using a whetstone, steel or the MinoSharp Pull Through sharpener (this nifty sharpener takes all the guess work out of finding the correct angle). Global Knives are made in Japan and designed by Komin Yamada. The signature dotty imprinted handle helps you to grip the handle even when hands are wet. The handles are shaped and balanced depending on the size and type of bland, so they are comfortable to hold and perfect for the job.
This set includes the following 5 knives-
G-55 18cm Cook's Knife - This 18cm Cook's Knife is perfect for chopping larger vegetables and joints of meat. The 18cm blade length suits a lot of people as the blade isn't too big. The hollow, weighted handle offers control without adding too much weight to the knife.
