If I'm not sitting at my computer, there's a decent chance I'm at the kitchen counter, and there it's all about the knife. For a long time I had a bunch of cheap crappy knives and one lone Global knife that I received as a gift. Since then, I've gradually built up my collection to the point where the good knives are outnumbering the bad. The Global knives are irresistible - the blade, the weight, the cut are all on point. They make the difference between enjoyable meal prep and irritable meal prep. (That's why after my last vacation rental experience, I'm now considering getting some kind of travel case for them... )
I've been using Global Knives for years! They are beautiful in their bamboo block on the counter and they grip quite well. I have sharpened them a few times (using my own sharpening block) and they become razor sharp once more. Great longevity! I have cooked well over a thousand meals with these and am still pleased.
