After recently getting into the Global brand and style, I am sold! These knives are hardened perfectly, are super lightweight, super sharp, and well worth every penny. The only down side is that if you are a lefty cutter, you have to order the Globals meant for left handers. This is because the blades are only cut to one side at 15 degrees. Also, for this fact, you can only either use the handheld sharpener made for Global knives or use a stone, which you better be good at or you will do no good for it. Other than that, 5 stars still

I love my Global
I have way too many knives...but my 8"" Global is my absolute favorite. It is super sharp, lightweight with a comfortable handle and it's really simple to sharpen and maintain

I am a professional chef, and I use an 8' Global daily in the kitchen. Light-weight, holds an edge really well, easy to sharpen, and its pretty tough. Great knives

Love it!
Elegantly designed, lightweight, perfect balance, sharp blade(8""). I love this! My go-to knife and worth every penny.

I prefer it to my Miyabi Chefs Knife

I love this knife
I think I love this knife only after years of using other knives. It makes me appreciate the lightness and thin edge. The one solid piece of metal is easy to care for an the dots are easy to grip (I had my doubts!). Everyone I have recommended these to loves them!

My favorite knife
I have various quality knives by different companies. The Global chef's knife has become my easy favorite. I want to get another couple of them in due time. I first heard about Global when my parents bought a full set. Then when my brother got married, he registered for a set as well (which I got for him!!). Finally I decided it was my turn to try one out! It is really a pleasure to use this knife. It is on the lightweight side, compared to the Germany style knives, which I really enjoy. It's more nimble and easier to work since it is light. But light does not mean flimsy. It is superb in quality while being lighter in heft than others. Give it a try. Highly recommend.

Finally, I want to cook again!
I bought my first Global chef's knife maybe 12 years ago, and I really loved it. Unlike a lot of chef's knives, it wasn't too heavy or bulky to work with. Six years ago I moved, and the knife seemed to have disappeared. I kept hoping that it would show up, but I finally decided to splurge and replace the one I lost. It was instantly comfortable and familiar, and I feel like I found an old friend again.

Sherrie B on Mar 16, 2018
Are these knives comfortable for bigger hands?
Jessica on Nov 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought these for my daughter who is 5 ft 4in. She likes them because they are quite light weight. Handle size probably ok for larger hand, but if you want the "heft" of a knife, for example a large chef's knife, then this would not be a top choice. Excellent blades, however, very sharp and handle design etc. is almost indestructible
Do you have to get a specific one if you are left handed?
Heather H on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Global chef's knives I own (two different sizes) do not appear to be "handed". I have a lefty DIL who has the same Global chef's knife, sharing it with my right-handed son. Serrated knives for slicing (like bread knives) are typically serrated on the left side which works better for righties, so lefties may want to get that type of knife with the serrations on the right side to help keep the knife slicing straight through the loaf etc.
"Is this 8" Global chef's knife good for cutting hard winter squash and yams (raw)?"
E J on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I really love this knife! My favorite in my kitchen. Definitely cuts yams easily. Winter squash is tough but I think winter squash is just a difficult thing to cut no matter how good the knife. A solid purchase!
