Before purchasing this knife, I had used Gougiri, a knife that a friend of mine who works at a Japanese restaurant had recommended. However, another friend who is also a chef recommended this Global knife to me so I decided to buy it as well. As I’ve used both knives, I’ve written down a comparison of the two:
・Design is great
・Since the blade and handle is completely made as one piece, it’s very easy to wash and therefore hygienic
The design is very cool, so using it makes you feel great! However, it uses molybdenum-vanadium stainless steel for the blade, so the sharpness of the blade is pretty average. If you’re looking to find a knife that can slice through paper, Global knives might not be the one you’d want to buy.
・Uses AUS8 for the blade so it’s amazingly sharp
・The handle’s a D-shape so it’s easier to grip
・The box is kind of lame
It’s made in Seki city in Japan, famous for their knife making skills, so the blade cuts really well. I’ve been using it for the past half a year or so but the sharpness hasn’t really changed. The design is pretty average so if you’re looking to buy a fancy looking knife, Gougiri wouldn’t excite you.
There are pros and cons to both knives so it all depends on what you’re expecting to get from the knife.
Hope my review helps you in your knife purchase decision!
