Vegetable chopper with high blade and sharp finish with perfect balance. Optimal for chopping and cutting various vegetables.
The G-5 has been a long-time favourite and one of the best-selling blades in the original Global series. A long rectangular shaped, flat blade with only a slight knife point. The G-5 is inspired by traditional Japanese Usaba knives, popular amongst professional chefs in the Tokyo area and a specialist vegetable knife.
The idea behind the shape of the blade is that it encourages a straight up down chopping motion where the full blade length will come in contact with the chopping board and so go straight through the whole vegetable. There is no need to push and pull the knife horizontally through the chopping motion.
The Japanese Global knives have been world known since the mid-1980s, and that is not without reason. Their aesthetically pleasing appearance, their ability to maintain their sharpness, and their handy grip make them indispensable in every kitchen.View all products from this brand
