Are you tired of using knives that come from the usual places like Germany and even the USA? Why not try out Asian knives for a change? I am a mother and I have been cooking meals for my family for so many years now. I have repeatedly purchased knives coming from the usual sources. Some come from Germany and some are produced here in USA. But there came a time, about a year ago, when I decided to give Asian knives a try. I purchased a Global GS-5 Knife which I now use to prepare vegetable-based foods. Until now, I haven’t been disappointed with the things that I can do with this knife. It makes me think that I should have tried this sooner.
Many people think that knives are all the same. No matter what the brand or design is, it’s the same thing that you use to cut or slice something. But that is a belief that should not carry throughout the time especially for people like me who depend on such tool almost all the time. All I can say is that the Global GS-5 Knife deserves to be noticed and tried and should not be dismissed just because it comes from the Asian Region
Features of Global GS-5
Equipped with balanced 5 and ½ inch blade
The blade material for the Global GS-5 Knife is Molybdenum/ Vanadium stainless steel. What’s good to know is that the knife comes with a perfectly balanced blade that works perfectly when you are chopping, slicing or cutting vegetables. The blade length is also perfect. It is not that big and not that small. I find it just the right size for a kitchen knife.
Comes with molded and dimpled stainless steel handle
Most knives come with handles that are made of polymer or wooden materials. But this knife comes with stainless steel handle which is molded and dimpled. The design makes it so that you handle the knife with ease properly. Even when wet, the chances of the knife slipping from your hand are slim. That’s the beauty of the well-thought design of the knife handle.
Retains razor-like sharpness for a long period of time
I cannot give you statistics but I can guarantee from my experience that the sharpness of the blade of this knife retains for a long period of time. You don’t need to sharpen it repeatedly. Even if you use it every day, you will notice that you will not have problems slicing through vegetables and other cooking ingredients you wish to reduce to smaller sizes.

It will be a wonderful addition to your collection of kitchen knives.
