Yoshikin Global Cromova Cook's Knife Global's 5" utility knife, with all the unique features of that company's fine knives, is a good pick if you need to fill out a short list of Global chef's blades. Combined with a Santoku and a paring knife, you'll have a set that will span the range of kitchen tasks that Global knives will cover. By itself, this knife will be a little over stretched.

With hollow seamless stainless steel handles, filled with precise amounts of sand to balance blade weight, the modern design allows you to work quickly with less fatigue. The efficient blade gives you more control and leaves cut food in better condition, contributing to the appearance of the plated result. Lighter, leaner, and more efficient, these blades are very different than traditional Western cutlery and Western companies are now struggling to catch up. If you've grown up with the heavier forged knives of Western kitchens, the step to Japanese tools will require a change in habits and skills, but it will be worth it.

Global's Cromova stainless steel is hard, ice-tempered to increase blade strength and edge-holding ability, and designed for cutting--not prying or bending or chopping. Medium to large bones are things it can't handle; fine bones can be cut by pressing directly down on the blade, but rolling the blade forward can damage the edge. Global edges are acutely angled, the sides of the bevel ground concave, but the thin edge is hard enough to chip against a surface like bone.
