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

That said, this knife has a place in my kitchen as the go-to knife for cutting up raw beef and chicken, all soft fruit and vegetables, herbs and such.
What I don't use this knife for is tough fibrous foods like raw potatoes - the knife feels too light weight and does not allow me to have the control over the knife that I would prefer - I reserve my Wusthof knife for those situations.
All in all, this is an excellent knife that fits in really well in our collection of knives that are chosen for a purpose - we have knives that excel at carving meat, at dicing veg, butchering beef, cutting tomatoes, ect ect. This can be your go-to knife for everything, but if you can only afford one knife, I would suggest an 8-inch chef's knife unless you are a very large person with huge hands.
It sharpens very easily on a hardware store whetstone and for the finicky there are cheap knife guides available from the manufacturer to guarantee that you have the correct angle when grinding and sharpening.
If you want light weight with a very nice edge in combination with easy maintenace I would choose Global over either Wusthof or Henckels. For the style conscious -- it is very cool looking indeed.
This is unquestionably one of the best knives you can get in this price range.
This is my go-to knife for almost everything. It's excellent for chopping and slicing vegetables, herbs, greens, and meat.
Due to it's thin blade profile and edge, the G-16 is not particularly great for extremely thick or hard things like butternut squash or chicken bones. For those tasks I prefer a thicker knife with more heft to it, or a cleaver.
I have owned this knife for more than 3 years and have used it almost every day since I got it. I also own its little brother, the 8" G-2 Global G-2 - 8 inch, 20cm Chef's Knife, a great knife as well. I use the 10" G-16 much more often than the 8" G-2. I could do without the 8" knife, but not without this knife.
If you are not a professional chef, this may be the last chef's knife you will ever need to buy. Sure you will need some smaller knives for specific purposes, but this knife will handle almost any job and with proper care the edge will stay razor sharp.
This knife will brunoise an onion perfectly with ease, make quick work of a whole bundle of herbs such as parsley or rosemary, cut through large carrots like butter, and finely slice a tomato or anything else with precision.
Take good care of your Global knives and they will last a lifetime.
as the 10 inch bread knife!
Both are incredibly sharp and wonderfully balanced.
Global knives use a very hard steel, so they are not
dish washer proof and need to be cleaned and dried
by hand after use! On the other hand it means they
stay sharp for longer! Another detail is that they
use a non-standard angle for the blade, so a normal
knife sharpener will not work on them as well...
Very expensive, but will last very, very long if
cared for and I really love these knives. I take
them with me whenever I go to a cooking/eating party
at friends places, as using other knives just feels
worth every penny....

The G-2 is the standard Chef's/Cook's, but it's too short for some tasks. The 27cm G-17 can seem a bit unwieldily and mismatched to smaller chopping jobs. The G-16 is just right. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sarafina
