This is the Global Knives NI Series 16cm Vegetable Knife (GNM-08). The Ni range features all of the things we have come to expect from Global knives; the unrivalled cutting edge, sleek distinctive design and impeccable balancing. But it is in the improvements in the Ni, designed by the original Global visionary Komin Yamada that make it truly one of the best range of knives around.
The knives are crafted with longer handles & rounded spines that provide complete control and comfort using a professional pinch grip. The tips of the knives have a stronger oriental styling that makes them perfect for precision cutting.The blades are thicker for greater weighting and easier cutting but still retain the lightweight feel of Cromova stainless steel for which Global’s knives have come to be recognised for.
Global Knives first made an appearance in 1985 after the Japanese designer Komin Yamadi designed an exciting new range of knives to a modern design. Using the finest materials, the revolutionary design of Global Knives have won numerous awards and have become firm favourites of both chefs and home enthusiasts the world over.
Global Knives are made from Cromova 18 Stainless Steel and are Ice Hardened to Rockwell 56-58, giving a keen edge which is easily sharpened.
You’ve invested in a quality knife and with proper care it will last a lifetime. The Global range has been designed to be without dirt traps. This makes cleaning your knife a much easier task. Wash your knife immediately after use in warm water with a mild detergent – do not put them in a dishwasher. After washing dry with a soft cloth and if required sharpen using a Minosharp or Global Sharpener. Store your clean knife in either a Global Knife Rack or protect the edge with a Global Magnetic Knife Guard.
With a knife for every scenario, Global Knives, should be the first choice for everyday use.
