The handle is nonslip his dimple profile. The knives are sharpened at an angle of 15-17 ° so that a longer sharpness than a traditional European knife is ensured.
The current series of Global knives and related items, as currently in the stores is very large. Besides the knives are also whetstones, sharpening rods (ceramic and diamond), spatulas, shovel work blocks and cases available. The range is from 1985 expanded from 16 to more than 100 knives.
