Oriental Cook's Knife -
18cm (7″) Oriental Cook’s Knife
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, a perfect combination of chromium, molybdenum and vanadium to maximize edge retention and stain resistance. To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and a bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. First, it is a far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Second, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening. Global knives have become extremely popular because of their light weight seamless construction and razor sharp edges.
