The Global GF-33, GF-34 and GF-35 are Global's fully forged chef's knives. As chef's knives they can perform any kitchen task. They can slice dice and chop and are generally all round multi-purpose knives. The GF series of chefs knives come in three sizes, a GF 33 is 21cm, GF 34 27cm and GF 35 30cm and the vegetable chopper GF 36 is 20cm
The full forged knives are heavier and more robust than the standard G series knives and so they make great professional chef's knives. The 27cm is a particular favourite among professional chefs and found throughout restaurant kitchens all around the world.
We understand why there would be a decision to make between getting the cheaper G series knives like the G-2 or paying more for the pricier forged series. Both series of knives have the same blade, the same blade thickness and ultimately the same edge. The forged series however is likely to be a better option if the knife is being used every day is a commercial kitchen. It is a lot stronger than the G-2, but also consider the weight of the knife, as some chefs prefer to have a heavier blade in the hand.
