Our G-2 is 17 years old it was our first of six Global knifes.  I actually use the santukuo more often, and the cheese and bread knives are indispensable, but the chef knife was the gateway.  We also have a Wustof sandwich knife that has serious rotation and might be used more often and is more versatile!

Can confirm that Global holds up.

I received one of their santoku knives as a going-away-to-college gift about 14 years ago. It changed how I thought about cooking as I learned to cook for myself, and I still use it every week. I will say that my recently-acquired G2 8-inch knife has become my favorite, but that Read more

It’s not super heavy, but it’s solid and well-balanced. The handle’s also a solid grip even if your hands are slick. I absolutely love mine.

I have the wustoff classic, but it’s actually the classic santoku that gets the most use. The thinner blade is easier to get sharp, and it’s just so good at slicing. The only things I don’t use it for are fibrous veg (broccoli/carrots etc.) and melons. But both very good knives. I also have the fibrox, and the Read more

The MAC MTH-80 would’ve killed all of the above, because I have it along with the three contenders. And the Victorinox can’t keep an edge with normal honing. Wustof isn’t bad, but a Japanese blade will outcut Zwilling or Wustof knives anyday.

Does the fibrox have any kind of weight to it? A former coworker had a victorinox and it was light as hell.  No bueno, for me anyway

I’m fully prepared to be laughed out of this thread but I’ve owned Wusthofs and Henckels and the best knife I’ve ever owned is this IKEA Slitbar VG10 Damascus full tang blade, and Pakkawood handle. Holds an end very well if sharpened correctly. Great weight. Sadly, I didn’t get the paring, Santoku and 10" they sold

+1 for the Global. I have two and have used them exclusively for 20 years.

Absolutely this. Even though the blade is thicker, you can get it more than plenty sharp to thinly slice things - and if they need to be real thin, I prefer a mandoline anyway, for consistency. Read more

I went with the Ikons as well. The ergonomics were better for me than anything else I’d tried, including several Japanese knives (the wa style handles just feel wrong to me). I haven’t had them long enough to know how they’ll hold up, but I’m okay with honing them regularly, and with the half bolster, I know they’ll Read more

One of my globals is about 18 years old I think ? Still great and working like a champ.

I am a chef, and have dozens of knives. I love my Globals and Shuns, but this past year Dalstrong has really impressed me. The shogun series chef knife is not only a work of art, but it is a fantastic blade. It stays razor sharp with minimal effort, takes a beating, looks gorgeous, and is a great multi-purpose knife.

I have this knife.  It’s good, but I don’t like the grip.
