Did a lot of comparative shopping before I made this purchase. I looked at some reviews, and decided to take the risk. I cannot even convey how pleased I am with this knife. It's lightweight, but well balanced, and cuts through everything like butter. If you love to cook, and you want a knife that will do the work for you. This is the knife. I was so pleased, I purchased a second knife to add to my set. One word of caution: stick with a reputable seller like Cooking.com as the manufacturer is warning of knock-off cutlery items on some less than reputable sites.
This chef's knife is the most functional length and it's light weight makes lengthy cooking sessions much easier on your wrists. The handle does not slip and the blades on all our Globals have never needed sharpening.
It's a big step to be willing to pay this much for a knife. But if the price didn't deter you from considering it, this is a FANTASTIC knife.
First - this is my first global, but the handle is fantastic. Made to be held...wonderful feel, nice and light. One of the most common complaints about these is that they are made for small hands....that is actually true. If you have big hands, maybe this actually isn't for you, but if you're female or have small hands, chances are you will long it!
Great balance...my first slice was on a head of cabbage and that was all it took to fall in love. I practically gave it no push at all...it just slid down like the cabbage was not meant to be whole.
*L* the biggest problem I have seems to be not dicing everything. This knife is just such a wonder to use that it's hard NOT to want to use it. I sometimes switch between using it and my Chicago Cutlery (which admittedly I used to think was pretty good...and it is not bad. I keep it sharp. But it is NOT this knife) just so I can remind myself what a wonderful step up.
Blade will take on anything. Meat, vegetables of all measure soft or hard. Food sees this knife coming and almost seems to politely separate itself :)
Seems to be holding an edge well...came sharpened (which is not always true of good knives) so I used it for a number of times before sharpening again. Needs sharpening after maybe every 6-8 meals? That's pretty good compared to some of my knives that need it every time. Cleans nice (do I even have to say it's a hand clean only? If you don't realize this...um, please do learn it before you get entrusted with one of these), no discoloration.
Beautiful, beautiful knife. It was my favorite from the first time I held it in my hand and took that first cut. Rests as a "prize" on the board that holds a couple of Shuns, a MAC, a Henkel, a Victorinox, and a Cutco. Some of the others compare to the cut, but between that and the feel of holding it, this one is the one that I love.
Strongly considering buying an even larger version of this for the few times when 8" just isn't quite enough. *eyes the butternut squash on the table*

The knife is light and nimble. Not a replacement for a true Chef's knife (a bit light and the blade isn't wide enough) but it takes an excellent edge with a steel and cuts beautifully. The handle provides a sure grip and it is well balanced. I'm very happy with it.
I got this knife as a gift for my boyfriend, who loves to cook. I think I have become his number 2! He LOVES the knife and treats it like it's the last one on Earth. I've used it too, and I have to say, I've never been able to chop up carrots with such ease. Or chop anything for that matter with such ease, it just glides through what ever your cutting like butter.
The smoothest knife I've ever used... can't wait to replace all my old knives with more like this one!
