All major knife manufacturers continue to introduce new knives adopting more and more of GLOBAL's revolutionary features. Even manufacturers of those black handled, three riveted, full boltstered, heavy, beveled-edge knives do not believe in their product any more. Why should you? GLOBAL has razorsharp straight edge sharpened by hand at a 15% angle. Thinner blades for lighter weight giving you more agility with less fatigue. Perfect balance using a weighted hollow handle. No bolster design allowing for full edge use and full-blade sharpening. All stainless steel construction with slip free handle.
