The GF-100 is a Global chopping knife with an extra thick 4mm blade. This makes the knives somewhat heavier and thicker than traditional Global knives. The shape of the knife is specifically intended for chopping vegetables.
The GF-100 has a long flat blade designed to come into full contact with the cutting board with each stroke and create clean cuts of each vegetable. The deep blade will make easy work of heavy vegetables such as sweet potato, squashes and beetroot. With a fully forged blade, the GF-100 is more suited to the professional kitchen and chefs more accommodated to the weight and feel of a German knife.
We recommend the GF-100 for professional chefs who do a lot of chopping in the kitchen.
As a fully forged knife, the GF-100 is made from one piece of steel from the knife point to the end of the handle and contains a full tang. It feels substantially heavier and has a lot more presence than that of other knives, which is great if you think Global knives are a bit too light.
