The Right Tool For The Job

Most of my friends know one of my passions is cooking.  Well, actually it’s food in general.  Some people eat to live, but I live to eat.  I really enjoy learning new techniques and cooking for friends and family.

One of my favorite kitchen tools is an 8″ chefs knife from a Japanese company called Global.  A great knife makes all the difference when it comes to prepping a great meal.  The Global line of knives features a one-piece design that not only makes it very to clean, it feels great in the hand after a lot of use.

A sharp knife is a safe knife, so I make sure to use a honing steel before each use as well as take advantage of affordable sharpening services from the local gourmet store at least twice a year.

If you’re in the market for a new set of kitchen knives or you’re looking for a perfect gift for the cook in your family, I really recommend you check out Global knives (available at fine kitchen stores and on-line).

    Any idea how Global compares to Cutco knives? I’ve been impressed with the quality of Cutco.

      I have seen good things about the Cutco. They get pretty high reviews. The Global knives have a different (narrow Japanese style) angle & are made from a different type of steel. I like the one-piece design for reliability, and cleaning. Knives are like a lot of things, once you move to a quality product it all comes down to personal preference (hand size & technique)…
