I wouldn't suggest a Victorinox if one is looking for a harder steel and better edge retention than the Global provides. Better have a look at the usual suspects with JCK, japanesechefsknife.com, as Misono, Hiromoto and Kagayaki. I would consider a Hiromoto AS 240 gyuto and a Misono 440 petty. And steeling a G-2 isn't a good idea neither: just asking for a wire edge. Better use stropping on your 3k stone for maintenance.
