Details: Global Knives have two most innovative features: the edge and the way they are balanced. Global’s Edge The most important feature of any knife is its edge. The blade is made from one of the finest steels, Cromova 18 stainless steel. This special steel is ice-tempered and hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 56-58°, which remains razor sharp longer than any other steel and resists rust, stains, and corrosion. The blade edge is ground on both sides of the blade like western style blades; however, the edge is ground to a straight point rather than a beveled edge which results in a razor-sharp edge that will stay sharp longer. Global’s Handle To balance the blade, all Global knives have a unique hollow handle filled with the right amount of sand to create the perfect balance.
