From The Manufacturer

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 “face-ground” with a long taper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than even the best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrive from the factory razor-sharp. Although Global also makes a “heavyweight” line for cooks who prefer hefty knives, its original knives–of which this 6-1/2-inch boning knife with flexible blade is an example–have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. Global also dispensed with bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight. Balance is achieved by injecting a precise amount of sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a blade is maneuvered. A finger notch between blade and handle provides safety.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

One of the biggest benefits of this knife is that the handle of the knife is forged of stainless steel. This allows you to put as much force on the blade without worrying about it breaking where the handle and blade meet.
The Global Cromova 6¼" boning knife has a lightweight and flexible blade made from hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel to retain its sharp edge for longer.
Handle has been textured with a dimple design to prevent slipping.
Very sharp and flexible. Use it to curve chicken breast off the bone and for slicing fish (smoked salmon, sashimi). Length of the blade is short but helps with maneuvering.
Its lightweight design enables you to get a perfect balance while working.
A point we would love to note about the blade is that it is extremely sturdy and powerful, as it is made of high quality molybdenum-vanadium stainless steel metal.
This knife was great; extremely sharp and I love the fact that it is flexible.
Optimal knife weight with a balanced blade.
Cuts through tight spots.
One of the best traits of ALL Global knives is that the blade is also the handle, the knife basically is just one piece of stainless steel.
