Most comfortable knives EVER
I recently bought this block set after trying one of the Global knives at a friend's house. She was telling me the reason she loves them is because she has smaller hands and these handles actually fit in her palm AND are comfortable. Also, the handles are sand filled so they are not too heavy and provide perfect balance. I am obsessed with them! The knives are super sharp and I love the modern look of the block. Most knife blocks can be kind of boring but this one is actually attractive

Just What You Need
I did some research on Global knives before purchasing this set. The tests completed on Global knives vs others of equal, lesser and greater cost were comforting as Global appeared to rank highly across many categories.

This set of knives is EXACTLY what you need and nothing more or less. I felt it was a good choice for quality and price point. They are light weight and cut beautifully.

The block itself is what initially drew me in and then when I found positive feedback on these knives in conjunction with learning that Giada uses this brand...well, it was a no brainer. :)

Happy, happy, happy

Best knives ever with a gorgeous holder
This knife set is all you need. Not only are the knives incredible, lightweight, and sharp as heck, but the knife holder is gorgeous and I love having it sit out on the counter. It's a thing of beauty, as opposed to more traditional knife blocks, which can look boring in a more modern kitchen

I love these knives
Sharp, lasting, beautiful. Am totally pleased. After researching decided to go with Japanese made. LIghtweight and easy to use.

Gidget C on May 29, 2016
Previous boyfriend owned a set just like this and I loved using them. I thought the block they were stored in made for a nice display as well. Very lightweight and didn't feel so bulky in my hand like so many other brands.
Jill R on May 18, 2016
Our 15 year old Wusthof knife set is old and has been sharpened to death...and my husband who is a professional chef is happy with the quality of the Global knives for home use.
Clare D on May 12, 2016

Carol Q on Nov 18, 2015
We bought this set for several reasons: its much more affordable than buying "al a carte" Glabal knives; we need a good starter knife set; it wasn't purchased from our wedding registry elsewhere; its the most attractive Global block I've seen; I've always wanted a set of Global knives! Very excited . Can't wait for it to arrive!

kerry c on May 19, 2015
My mom is an excellent cook and she has fallen in love with these knives. I trust her judgment about anything to do with the kitchen so I'm getting myself a set as well. When you have the right set of knives, cooking becomes so much more enjoyable. Choose right!

Great knives
Fred M on Nov 29, 2014
Son researched and found this set to be an exceptional value
Mario H on Nov 29, 2014
Aesthetics aside, I chose to get these Global knives because of great reviews I'd seen online, the fact that they're full tang knives, they feel great in small hands, and the knife block is open so it stays pretty clean (crumbs and other things can't fall inside and get stuck like they can in other knife blocks).
Ashley R on Nov 28, 2014
The highly rated Global brand, unique, great looking knife block (which I couldn't find elsewhere except at Sur La Table.)
Amanda I on Nov 27, 2014

Jill R on May 18, 2016
Can I purchase just the block

I have wonderful knives I've bought over the years at Sur La Tab and elsewhere but have never found the perfect block. THis looks like it. Can I please buy just the block, and if so, how much would it be.Global� 6-Piece Block SKU: 1157817Thank
A shopper on Jun 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, this block is not sold seperately
why is this knife set not forged?
gary y on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are all one piece. They may be. But in any case they're great I use them every day and have use them for over a year.
What are the dimensions of the bamboo block?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Overall, this block is 7 1/4"" long and 9"" tall. The bamboo portion is 7 1/4"" long, 3"" wide and 3"" deep
Are these light weight?

Bob Kramer Stainless Damascus 7-Piece Block Set by Zwilling J.A. Henckels®
BEST ANSWER: The Global knives are light weight. I use to have the Wustof classic and I like the Global knives much better.
When in the block, are the tips of the knives exposed? The photo looks as if there may be glass or plexi as protection.
Stacey S on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the blades are exposed but there is a plexiglass shield that protects you from cutting yourself and protects the knives getting dinged by another counter object. The base is well constructed, the wooden block is very attractive and plexiglass shield is never at risk of being scratch by pulling knives out or putting them back into their places.
What is the best way to sharpen these knives?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The best way to sharpen your knifes. A wet stone, followed by a few strokes (20) on a steel. Use a 33% angle for both stone & steel. Which is similar to the angle of a book of matches.

Get your stone nice & wet. Swipe blade with even pressure at 33% for each side. Keep going til your satisfied. Keep paper with you to test cut. The knife should cut the paper effortlessly.

Attempt this technique on a knife that isn't important to you first. Just to get the hang of it.
