High tech from tip to handle, Global knives from Japan created a sensation when they burst onto the world's culinary stage as an alternative to traditional European-style cutlery. Blades are made of hard molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and "face-ground" with a long taper rather than a short bevel so edges remain sharp longer than even the best high-carbon stainless-steel knives. Edges also are ground at a more acute angle than traditional European-style knives and arrive from the factory razor-sharp. Although Global also makes a "heavyweight" line for cooks who prefer hefty knives, its original knives--of which this 8-inch chef's knife is an example--have thinner blades and are lighter than traditional European-style knives. Global also dispensed with bolsters on its original knives to reduce weight. Balance is achieved by injecting a precise amount of sand for a particular blade style into a hollow handle. To ensure balance is continuous, the sand flows inside the handle as a blade is maneuvered. A finger notch between blade and handle provides safety.

Stainless-steel handles are Global's most striking feature. They're molded to fit the hand and dimpled to resist slipping. Smaller around than many European-style handles, they're easy for small-handed cooks to grasp and seamless for sanitation. Global recommends using a ceramic sharpener or a diamond steel instead of a metal sharpening steel for its knives, supplemented by a synthetic whetstone, a ceramic whetstone, or a Shinkansen sharpener. Global also makes a Sharpening Guide Rail so blades can be honed on a whetstone at the proper angle. Global knives should be hand washed to protect edges. They carry a lifetime warranty against defects and breakage. --Fred Brack

As a professional cook, I don't like to waste time with gadgets or gimmicks at work. I was tired of the the dull, poor quality knives that my company supplies. I had the opportunity to try a Wusthoff knife during a busy shift. While it was better than the company knives,the weight made delicate tasks difficult. I held the Global at a cutlery shop and immediately noticed the balance and light weight it possesed. I purchased it on the spot. The knife is the best I have ever used. Global was able to produce a superior knife and it has proven itself day in and day out by handling everything from cutting frozen beef to slicing through tomatoes with ease. I will never go back to another brand, the knife is THAT good.

Buy DR knives if you are not sure.
Most - if not all - professional chefs agree that one of the best tools for any cook to have is a good knife. I worked as a professional chef for better than 25 years. I bought this knife after reading a log of positive reviews. All I can say is, either the people writing good reviews might be the company doing it themselves, or people that have no idea what a good knife is.

This knife was highly recommended by Cook's Illustrated and I loved it when I first got it - great balance, nice construction - but within the first two weeks the tip of the knife broke off. I'm a little bit of a kitchen item snob and am very careful with my cooking tools - especially knives. Somewhere between slicing onions, carrots and other veggies and two turns in the dishwasher (in a special knife place) the tip is gone. No idea how this happened. While I know that it can happen with cheap knives or knives that aren't properly cared for, I've never had it happen. Makes me question the quality of the rest of the blade if the tip has shattered off despite careful handling. I was so disapointed. After 1 month, I bought alternative knives, DR knives which has stylish design and high-quality stainless steel. I recommend this one rather than Global, and maybe a good item for those who are looking for a all stainless chef's knives.

This knife amazed me when I took it out of the box. I lightly dragged my thumb across the edge and felt some of my skin shave off, and looked closely at the edge to see flakes of my skin on either side of the blade. I tested it out on a tomato eagerly and it fell through it like falling through air. You cannot feel any friction whatsoever as the knife goes through the food. This knife is well worth the money, and really for a knife of such quality, its not that expensive.

It is lightweight and all one full piece of steel, which means all food can be washed from it without sticking in any cracks or seams, as well as rigid durability. The steel its made of, apparently "Cromova 15", shines in my eyes like the first time I got it every time it is washed, and repels water, so the juices from various foods drip away to help prevent slices of food sticking to the side of the blade.

I gave this knife four stars, because unfortunately, the edge will start to deteriorate after about 3-400 strokes to the board. And it is exceptionally difficult to sharpen due to the strange edge these knives have had put on them at the factory, BUT if you regularly stroke it across a mediocre steel once or twice on each side after a few uses the edge will remain factory sharp for quite a long time. This knife will make all your foodie friends jealous. I left mine at work for about 4 days whilst I was gone, and the head chef (who readily agrees it is the sharpest knife in the kitchen) used it heavily, disregarding his wuhstof collection. I came back and he had not honed the edge, so it had deteriorated well beyond repair to its original condition. Make sure you keep it sharp and treat it like family, and this knife will treat you better than any knife I have used, and I own Shun, Whustof, Henckels 5-star, Sabatier, and other various brands. I am sold on global.

While renovating my meager kitchen, I recently splurged, spending over $330 on two Shun Elite knives. They were hand made Japanese knives--sexy and sleek, beautiful to look at it--and very sharp with a gleaming edge. They caught your eye with a dazzling patterned blade.

A friend, inspired by my kitchen equipment renovation, went out and bought Global knives, preferring them for his high-tech shiny stainless kitchen. He asked me over for a cutlery show-down with my new Shun Elites. I was ready to rub his Globals into the dust with my Shun Elites!

After an entire afternoon of chopping and comparing, we both came to the same overwhelming conclusion--the Globals were sharper and easier to use. It's not that they are sharper per say, but if you examine them closely, the Global's edges are slightly concave, and are burred and rough, while the Shun Elites are polished to a gleaming and shiny finish, and taper to a much more straight point. My friend and I both felt that the Global's burred concave edges allowed the Globals to sorta gripe and slice/slid through everything from carrots to meat with more ease than the Shun's polished and acute edge. Because of this ease, we can also logically foresee the Global's staying sharper longer as well, despite the higher rockwell rating of the Shun's high tech SG-2 powder steel. However, who knows...?

We even tried shaving hair off of our arms, and the Globals won this test with ease. They are incredibly balanced and just seem to bounce in your hands.

I loved my Shun Elites--they were sexy and beautiful.
