The G-9 is Global's classically shaped bread knife. It is a specialist knife, really for use with bread only. The teeth are made to saw through the crust of bread but could also be used for some tough meats, for example crackling.
The funny thing is, the Japanese do not really eat bread and so it is one of those products that they never really understood! If you look closely at the knife blade you will see that on the face of the knife, the teeth have a chamfer whilst on the back of the knife, the face is flat. When you cut into bread, you will automatically cut inwards in a curve rather than straight down and the chamfer is there to help correct this so that your slicers will be more of a similar thickness all the way through.
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 Global
