    A super-gas knife that is a joy to hack for example with onions because the Japanese steel is so thin. The disadvantage of steel treated so is that it is harder and therefore also slightly more sensitive to external influences. It bursts easier. However, I managed to have my global for 10 years, despite the abuse of the dishwasher, before it one day went off in the middle. It had not happened with ex German steel which is softer, wider and more durable. But the knife is a joy to use as long as it lasts and if you are more careful I have been, it would have been 10 years. A very light knife that is still good in the hand.

    For a long time, I thought the classic chef's knife size was too big, but now I think it is cannon. Use it for everything from chopping vegetables to sharing frozen meat.

    Is easy to grind and stays sharp for a long time. Recommended!

    I like that it's easy, it feels smaller than it is. Smooth enough to use for finer work with the tip. Well balanced.

    Just like hard for home use I think. Had a Miyabi that was a little harder earlier but with every little mini-flake I became more satisfied with it and in the end it was used too little.

    Easy to clean and easy to wipe with the soft transition between the blade and the handle.

    I thought it was worth a couple of minutes to wrap some fine sandpaper around something hard and pull a couple of times at a 45 degree angle to the edges of the heel and the blade. They were very sharp, now they are soft and comfortable to put their finger on.

    Global is stylish, more easily maintained than many other Japanese knives but will not be as sharp (steel is not the hardest). They stay sharp even if an amateur takes care of them. A good knife sharpener or the like is a must, such as Mino Sharp MC-550 works well. This applies to all blades.

    For me, the only problem with Global I get sore thumb after prolonged use, the blade back is too narrow at the top of the handle.

    Do not keep them dry, otherwise rust or later. Want knives you can beat so buy IKEA or something German but then you do not focus.

    It is very easy but has good balance and sits perfectly in my hands are normal sized for less.
    Very sharp, even after sanding.
    Using G-2 to all but the next purchase will be a smaller model to vegetables and fillet.

    Amazing!
    Everything, absolutely everything in the fridge turns into butter during this sharp blade.
    Check tests, try it for yourself, higher quality than this, there just is not.
    Expensive knife but it also beat its competitors by a long way!

    Happy with my knife so far, even the wife approved it.
    Extremely sharp.
    For 549, the affordable, are certainly better knives but hardly at that price.
    You just have to watch out so you do not get a copy, there are apparently plenty of them.
    After 6 months, I have now managed to get a few nicks in it so it's probably fragile, probably has been misused by someone else in the household. Shall submit it grinding eventually.

    This knife is a relatively short knife with a fairly good profile and unfortunately worse value for money than can be found elsewhere, I think. The steel is a little harder and thinner than most crappy knives many have at home, because it is also a little more fragile. But while the steel is good much softer than many more serious knives. But the steel is too brittle after grinding or have too high molybdenum content, or rust excessively is just talk as long sharpener has done its job and you can not beat the knife. The steel has a not too high carbon content and a fairly high content of chromium, it is the right rust resistant, but will still rust if treated badly.

    In sum, working steel, okay profile, thin blade with a pretty good taper not fond of the metal handle at all and I do not think they are comfortable to pinchgreppa. Patok too expensive knife, belongs rather at home around 400-500kr. Fair is this knife simply.

    Then hurpass sharp a knife is, you should not give ratings for really as many good knives will basically rough. How sharp it will depend mostly on the grinder, then hurpass easy it is to get sharp or how long it stays on the slip angle and the properties of steel.

    Best knife I have owned (say little when I only owned junk knives from IKEA). However it feels a little too fragile. I have been extremely careful with the knife but still has a nasty gouge (2mm maybe) in the blade.

    Troubled good knife. Lies well in the hand.

    Holds an edge very well and does not rust at all that someone wrote. I disks always on hand and wipe away.

    Amazing. Beautifully balanced, hyper sharp and stylish as hell.

    Recommended as the knife to obtain first. The rest are complementary.

    Given the price, I think it is spot on. Wonderful balance and it holds an edge well.
    Contrary to what someone wrote so rust they were not, provided they are maintained properly. Ie, wash and dry immediately after use.
    The sharpness fixes best with a couple of stones in different thicknesses or with a Mino Sharp (the easy option)

    Pretty neat but it rusts! Was surprised how much it actually rust. Have 3 pieces that all rust. I also think it is really difficult to sharpen. Submitted it at Gothenburg's best grinders and that made it better but because it is so hard so quickly formed notches and cracks, especially after grinding. Select rather a knife with lower molybdenum content.
