The chef's knife is an absolute essential for any kitchen. This GS-58 Oriental Cook's Knife 11cm blade has a smaller blade for more precision and is suitable for most slicing, dicing and chopping kitchen tasks. The attractive kink in the blade gives the knife an 'oriental' styling, but it bears no meaning to the function of the knife. It is not designed specifically for oriental food, or oriental ways of using a knife, it is just a different shape of chef's knife. It does have a beautiful upward curve to the blade, which when cutting allows the knife to rock up and down on the chopping board, a bit like a mezzaluna.
This knife forms part of our Little Essentials range of small and medium knives that create a comprehensive knife collection to perform a large variety of kitchen tasks. These kitchen knives have the G-88/4444 dock that has been specifically designed to house this range.
The shape has been so popular that the second series of Global knives, the Global NI series, has been based on this knife design. There is a larger version of this knife available, the G-4 Oriental Chef's Knife and it also comes in a fluted version as the GS-59 Fluted Kitchen Knife 11cm.
