This knife features a serrated edge and holes to improve the separation of cheese from the blade. The two prong knife tip can be used to serve sliced cheeses.
Global knives are unique because of their edge and the way they are balanced. The most important feature of any knife is its edge, and the Global edge is truly its signature. The majority of the Global knives are sharpened or ground on both sides of the blade like western style knives. However, their edges are ground straight to a point rather than beveled resulting in a dramatically sharper knife which stays sharper longer. The edge is so large and prominent that it is easily seen with the naked eye and extends a quarter inch or more up from the tip of the knife.
To balance their knives, Global uses a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. Global uses this method rather than using a full tang and a bolster to balance their knives for two reasons. First, it is a far more precise than using a tang and a bolster. Second, Asian knives typically do not have bolsters, since they only serve as a hindrance to cutting and sharpening.
Global knives are made from the finest high carbon stainless steel available for producing professional quality kitchen knives. Yoshikin uses its own proprietary stainless steel which it calls CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel. This steel is hard enough for Global knives to keep their edge for a long time, but soft enough so that it is not too difficult to sharpen the knives. The CRO in CROMOVA 18 stands for chromium and the 18 is the percentage of chromium in the steel. This high percentage of chromium contributes to Global's good stain resistance.
Excellent General Serrated Edge Knife

OK, it's a cheese knife, but I ended up using it for all sorts of kitchen tasks--and then I misplaced it, and had to fall back on other small knives, and that was when I really started to appreciate it. So I replaced it. Forget about cutting hard butter with anything else. Terrific little knife!

another great product from Global. I would prefer a smooth blade rather than serrated, but i guess it makes sense to ensure longevity

Great knife! No more clunky pieces of cheddar cheese. Cuts very smooth and easy - thin slices are a breeze.
The price was the cheapest online!!!
