Global's large handle slicer knives come in two sizes, the G-1 at 21cm and this model the G-6 at 18cm, there is also a small handle equivalent, the GS-2. It is listed as a slicing knife, or slicer knife because of its rounded blunt end. It is very similar to the G-2 in that sense but is designed for cutting meat into pieces, the idea behind the blunt end is that the tip does not nick or catch as you are slicing through meat and you can smoothly roll it into the cut. These slicing blades work particularly well on meat that is close to the bone, such as chicken or duck. Nevertheless, the size and shape of the knife lend it to being another all-rounder and this Global knife can be used as a multipurpose knife for cutting up vegetables.
