Global Knives Sharpening Service

global knives sharpening

One of the utensils that is of the utmost importance in the preparation of ingredients is the knife, and a chef or cook relies on a sharp and efficient knife as much as they rely on their skills.

Whether you see chefs in movies, TV series, cooking shows or in real life, you would likely see a utensil bag filled with an arsenal of sharp and high-quality knives. This personal collection of knives is incredibly important to them as they use only these to prepare their ingredients.

One of the most common types of blade you will see in a chef’s knife collection is known as the Global knife. Global knives have stamped blades that are razor- sharp, which are obtained by sharpening the edge at an angle of between 12 and 14 degrees. The result of this sharpening is an incredibly thin blade that requires a serious precautions to be taken when it comes to using it non-professionally.

Since the blade is specially designed to be sharp and last a longer time than regular chefs’ knives, most culinary professionals make it their choice of utensil. These chefs and culinary professionals then use different sizes of Global knives for different purposes in their kitchens. Although the blades of Global knives are designed to last a prolonged period of time, they still require sharpening at least once or twice every year.

What’s interesting is that many domestic chefs throw out their blades at the first sight of bluntness and don’t consider getting them sharpened at all. This is important because Global knives do not come cheap, as only one knife can cost a couple of hundred pounds. If we average two blunt blades in a year, the cost of buying replacement knives could be anywhere between £200 and £300.

A simple solution to this problem is available. Instead of throwing away blunt knives just get them sharpened professionally. Getting a knife sharpening service to come and service your blade to its original sharpness is a much cheaper alternative than buying new ones. Like we said above, a new Global knife can cost you hundreds of pounds, but getting them sharpened will only cost £8.62 per blade. This way you’ll be able to save hundreds of pounds and extend the longevity of your Global knives.

Getting your Global Knives sharpened is also better for the environment. Instead of contributing litter and waste to an already overburdened environment, you will be playing a small role in saving the earth just a little bit. As per the circular economy theory, you will be doing a favour for the economy and the environment as you use your utensils for their maximum lifespan.

SUPERB, Daniel was prompt, friendly and very efficient. I had 12 knives that needed sharpening including a couple of Japanese Knives, one of which I had dropped and broken the tip off and another that I had put a couple of nicks in the blade. Daniel was able to reshape the broken tipped knife and remove the nicks without any fuss. As an exchef I was very impressed, the whole process was quick and left absolutely no mess at all. I will certainly be using the service again and will be using the service again and will be recommending it to all my friends.

Excellent service. Turned up promptly and sharpened 8 Global knives of varying sizes in about 25 minutes using a professional sharpening machine. Quality of sharpening was very good – small chips on some of my old knifes were completely removed and the edges were expertly honed. The helpful man also offered advice on care and cutting surfaces too. You pay once the sharpening is complete and they accept card payment which is extra convenient. Will use again next time.
