This is the new 10 inch blade Global Chef Knife, the most used knife, it easily glide through food! Each handmade knife is forged from super high quality Japanese alloy steel. It is very sharp. Lifetime Warranty.
Chefs Note: Sweet Chef Knife, cool handle, razor sharp, super thin edge, perfectly balanced and amazing CROMOVA steel blade. If you want a high quality knife to pass through generations, you found it. Bonus: Free Offers Above & Below!
Chef Notes: We like the feel of this beauty and the extra sharp thin blade. Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen the knives. The CRO in CROMOVA 18 stands for chromium and the 18 is the percentage of chromium in the steel. This high percentage of chromium contributes to Global's good stain resistance. The MO and VA in CROMOVA 18 stand for molybdenum and vanadium. These two elements give a knife good edge retention. See FREE OFFERS above & below!
