This peeler knife by Global is ideal for peeling and paring fruits and vegetables, with its stainless steel blade 6cm. It has been designed to give a perfect balanced handling. High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and the handle of non-slip full stainless steel.
Global knives made a great introduction to the world of Japanese knives and are a staple of the professional chef tool kit. They are easy to take care of, are on the cheaper price end as far as Japanese knives go and can be brought to a pretty sharp edge. Their one-piece design is also highly sanitary, as no food stuff will stay stuck between the knife's parts.
The steel used is CroMoVa, a high level chrome, molybdenum and vanadium alloy that resists really well to corrosion and is able to keep it's edge for quite a while.
The city of Seki (Sakai), Japan, is known for being the Japanese capital of swords and cutlery since over 600 years. The city contains the accumulated knowledge of generations of blacksmiths who perfected the art and science of samurai swords. Today, the master craftsmen (some octogenarians) still apply and pass on their expertise even though the warlords have now long been replaced by culinary chefs as main customers. Sakai Takayuki Aoki Hamono Seisakusho is one of the most famous and renowned manufacturers of Seki, which hires several generations of blacksmiths and apprentices. The company offers a large variety of kitchen knives, for both professional chefs and home cook.
