Pros: great weight and balance. very durable in hard environments
Cons: Terrible edge, and will never hold its edge
Global knives were in my mind the chef knife to have. As a professional chef i'm always looking for a better tool. I bought the Global 8in. It has great weight, and is durable to withstand the hard environment of a working kitchen. The only problem is keeping it sharp, I mean properly. It never came back to that beautifully new sharp. I had it professionally sharpened and it dulled in about an hour. I ended up giving it away. Huge disappointment!
