I was given an unexpected Christmas bonus this year, and took some of the money to buy the Global 3 piece starter kit.
I feel a bit awkward doing so, as it's like putting a 12 year old behind the wheel of a Porsche(I was using cheap farberware before), but nonetheless they're mine now, and I have to learn how to care for them.
I was browsing The Professional Knife Kit at Borders the other day, but I'm looking tips to caring for Global knives specifically since I know they're a bit different. I also purchased a Global Ceramic Rod as well as a magnetic wall rack. I've read that the rod may not be a sufficient sharpening tool and that I may need to pick up a stone as well. Is this true?
