Global GS61 - 16cm Bagel and Sandwich Knife (GS-61)
The Global GS-61 knife is the ideal knife for use on bread, bagels and vegetables. The serrated edge prevents food from sticking to the blade giving a clean cut every time.
What is a bagel knife? Well it took a long time to explain to our Japanese suppliers what a bagel was and why we eat so many of them. Apparently it is a very American/British thing. Really the Global range was missing a small bread knife, as the GS series contained everything but a small bread knife. At 16cm it is good enough for most loaves of bread and it is also a cheaper option than buying the full G-9. It also doubles up as a good utility knife for vegetables that have a hard skin and soft centre. So it is excellent for slices of large tomatoes as well. We realised that some of our smaller Global blocks could not fit the large bread knife, so if you have the smallest size of ship shape block, the GS-61 is a god option.
Global GSF15 - 8cm Spearpoint Peeling Knife (GSF-15)
The GSF-15 is the most popular petty knife in the Global range and is very often found in set combinations. Its little 8cm blade is good for all those small kitchen tasks, peeling, cutting fruit and small delicate kitchen work. This knife can cover all the tasks of the other GSF range and is a classic all-rounder. Its fully forged blade is strong enough to get into and separate meat joints and can put up with a certain amount of twisting and levering.
