Product Description

Global 3 Piece Hollow Ground Santoku Knife Set. Set comprises of 7" hollow ground santoku knife, 5.25" utility knife and 3.5" paring knife (G48, GS3 and GS38). Loved by professional chefs around the world, Global knives are an excellent choice for the serious home cook. The thin and razor sharp Global blade allows the cook to cleanly slice through foods, preserving the integrity of the ingredient and maximizing its flavor. The majority of Global knives are ground to a straight point rather than the western style of beveling the edge. To balance their knives Global uses a hollow handle that is filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. The handle has its own unique darkened dimples for a non-slip grip. Because the knives are very light weight they reduce hand fatigue. Global knives have a smooth contour and seamless, all stainless construction that eliminates food and dirt traps. Global knifes are forged in Japan from CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, a blend of 18 percent chromium for good stain resistance plus molybdenum and vanadium which gives excellent edge retention

I did a lot of research before purchasing my first knife set. I'm a recent college grad and want to start collecting some quality kitchen equipment to last me a lifetime (hopefully). My initial tip on these kinves was from the book "Kitchen Confidential" by Anthony Bourdain - a great read if you are interested in exploring cooking and the restaurant world or "culinary underbelly" as I believe he calls it. Bourdain recommends Global knives in the book.

These knives are the sharpest I have ever used. They are also very light and a delight to hold - great craftsmanship. My mother kept a set of heavy German knives that were dull as rocks (I don't think she ever sharpened them, well maybe once a decade) and it was always frightful to use them growing up as I felt I'd cut my finger clear off trying to get a raw potato sliced (I loved making the mashed potatoes).

The three piece set gives you a lot of versatility. I've even *gasp* used these as an impromptu cardboard box cutter. One cool thing about this set is it includes a Santoku as the main chef's knife. According to Wikipedia, the "'granton edge' release pattern (scalloped) on the blades that not only adds style, but helps to release thin slices and sticky food after slicing." Cool.

Looking into sharpening options - suggestions welcome.

Thank you Amazon for the very timely delivery (it currently looks like they are on backorder or something, though).

These are very nice knives, and the price is very reasonable for the quality you are getting.
I just bought some for my husband for his birthday, and he is completely in love with him. He is going to culinary school, so he is very specific about the kind of knife he likes.
They are very sharp, and come with instructions on how to take proper care of them, such as sharpening and cleaning. If anyone is looking to spend a little more for a good quality basic set of chefs' knives, I would definitely recommend these.
The only other thing to take into consideration is the unique handle design. My husband likes it; I know some prefer the more classic style of handle. However, I have not found that it makes using the knife difficult or awkward. It is more a matter of personal preference.

Cooking with these, makes me feel like an actual cook.

Spending good money on good quality knives actually encouraged me to cook more instead of ordering out.

Sharp so far, works best on vegetables like cucumbers.

I got these on a whim. Compared to the other high quality knives I've used these win. I was surprised how much I loved them. I'll keep my other knives, but these are very functional. The only knives I want to use.

I have many fine knives in my collection, but these are my very favorite. I like them so much I gave them to my sister and to my neice for her wedding. The balance is great and the sharpness unequaled. Worth every penney.

This set arrived a few days before christmas and upon inspection is a beautiful set made of quality material. Anyone should be happy to have this. Unfortunately my fiance already does! I ended up having to return this item, but only because of the mixup with my fiance already having this set. Otherwise, this set is gorgeous, and a must-have basic starter set for anyone who loves to cook. Definitely worth the price tag!

These knives are truly great. I have had them about a year now, along with a set of Chicago cutlery knives and I am always surprised of the quality of the knives vs. the Chicago cutlery knives. I mean don't get me wrong the chicago cutlery knives are definitely sharp knives and would be recommended if you don't want to spend the money for these, but if you take care of these, I don't see why they shouldn't last you a life time. And these are all you really need, besides maybe a bread knife to have a serrated knife and possibly some kind of peeler. I have never regretted the purchase of these knives because they are truly great quality, you really can notice a difference between this forged knife and stamped knives. These knives are actually sharpened whereas stamped knives just kind of come to a point on the edges. When you get them, they feel a little strange at first because of the handles, but I got used to it and I like them better than traditional style handles now. I definitely recommend these knives, because they have stayed sharp and have not rusted at all after a year. What more can you ask from knives really?
