Every kitchen needs a great chef’s knife - and that is exactly what you will receive when you order this product by Global. The 8’’ Chef’s Knife is a classic, but few cutlery companies do it as well as Global, which is a Japanese brand with a long-standing reputation for quality. This knife is made from CROMOVA 18 high carbon stainless steel, and it possesses remarkable balance which makes it easy to use. Thanks to the ice-tempering process that is used on these knives, they hold their edge well over time and they resist rust and corrosion. Made in Japan, Global knives are backed by a lifetime warranty. When your knife needs to be cleaned, keep it safely away from the dishwasher and just use a little soap and water to scrub it clean - and then wipe it dry. With the right amount of care and proper use, this will be the last chef’s knife you buy for a long, long time.
