Cons: hurts hand after a couple hours
Great all round knive, hard steel takes a while to get a new edge on, but keeps it once it's there. Made for vegetables but good for almost anything. I love this knife and use it every day in the commercial kitchen. My mother liked it so much when I took it over for Sunday lunch I had to give it to her so now I own another one. I have big hands so it hurts after a couple hours of hard chopping because where the handle joins the blade it's bare steel. But that's nothing to put you off.... if you need a great all-round kitchen knive this Global is a beauty. Highly recommended.
