In my opinion Globals aren't very good knives any more, and certainly not "for the money."  Nor do I believe you get the best bang for the buck by putting together a knife kit made up of knives from a single manufacturer's line.

 

But it's not my opinion which counts.

 

You certainly seem to like your Globals.  Unless you want something from a chef's knife which you feel Global can't provide, the obvious choice seems to be a G-16.  

 

It also makes a great deal of sense to investigate some other possibilities.  But narrowing their number from near infinite to something manageable is going to require some input on your part.

 

Why do you think you might want something else? 

What do you do to sharpen?

How much are you willing to spend?
