Global Knife Set Review

Each Global knife set contain knives that are lightweight, but also have a nice balance that makes them feel like an extension of my hand.  The balance is created with a precise amount of sand in the handle.  The handles also have a molded shape that helps keep hands from getting tired when chopping, which is especially important when you do a lot of cooking.

One of the best features of a Global knife set is that they contain the sharpest knives I have ever used.  May make them sound more dangerous, but actually it is the duller knives that you have to work harder to cut through stuff with that tend to cause more kitchen mishaps.   Also, each knife in a Global knife set has a dimpled handle to give you a safer non-slip grip (makes it more comfortable, too!).

The knives in each Global knife set all have thin blades.  The thin blades allow you to maintain ingredient flavor and integrity.  The blades and handles are also smooth and seamless to make them more hygienic by eliminating spots for food and dirt to get caught.

All Global Knife Sets make great starter knife sets that will last for a long time.  The knives are made with 18% Chromium, which helps keep them from becoming stained.  They also contain molybdenum and vanadium to help maintain great edges.  They are also face-grounded, which helps keep them sharp longer.  They do still need to be sharpened, but they maintain their sharpness longer than a lot of other knives.

Each Global knife set is a little different, but no one set is really better than the others, as it is mostly about personal preference and what kind of knife cutting you need to do in the kitchen.  Some may prefer the slightly longer utility knife in the Global 3-Piece Chef’s, Utility, and Paring Kitchen Knife Set, but the main difference in the sets is whether you want a Chef Knife or a Santoku knife.  It is partially about the feel of the knife in whether you want a longer 8 inch Chef Knife or a shorter 7 inch or 5.25 inch Santoku Knife.  The real benefit of the Santoku knife, though, is that it has a scallop pattern that can sometimes help release items from the knife.
