Looks nice and I like the locking feature - does anyone have these to verify the quality ?
Heat and rep added :thumbsup:

Bought these last year when they were £16...look the part but that's about all. Very thick blades and I found them hard to use. Not used them at all since I'm afraid....didn't lock either!!

do yourself a favour if you want some knifes just buy this one knife for the same price it will last longer than all of those put together.

The lazers are serrated so cant be sharpened easily and are not that sharp to begin with. I have used 4 global knifes in my deli for 2 years and they are still 100%. Cheap knifes are a false economy you would be better with one good knife than 6 rubbish ones.

You're right, can't beat Japanese knives. Excellent value for money and should last a lifetime in domestic use.

Edinburgh new town, and yes if you spend over £200 ill give you a pack of biscotti free :gift::whistling:

Couldn't agree more - spend your money on one high quality knife rather than a set of lesser ones. If you are going for a Global, may I recommend a minosharp water sharpener like this one

http://www.amazon.co.uk/MinoSharp-Sharpener-Global-Knives-Black/dp/B0017I0MDO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1217843333&sr=8-2

Helps keep your blades pretty razor sharp without the hassle and worry of using whetstones.
#10
I got these the last time the deal was on, for £25 they're worth the money I reckon, though the above criticisms are valid (serrated, not exactly razor sharp). The stand is very good though, and magnetised so it's easy to clip your knives in and out.
#11
I also agree. Cheap knives are a false economy. They blunt fast, and blunt knives are dangerous. Invest in one good, large knife and a wetstone to keep it sharp.
#12
the global knifes are amazing but too too expensive my dad uses these

I cut myself just by looking at them

Why are these described as 'infamous', surely that's a bad thing?

No it means well know...but also means notorious which is usually related to something that is disreputable...bad use of the word I guess.

Why??...its true....more accidents are caused by blunt knives than sharp

I use a Kasumi Ceramic Chefs Knife....kasumi are absolutely fantastic japanese knives and are cheaper and better than Global..

Try applying a little bit of thought to the matter and you might realise why.

I'm a chef and i've used loads of different makes of knives. Wusthof, Gustav, Victorinox, shun, proper sabatiers etc

Still have a set of 7 Global knives in my box that I rarely use, yes they stay quite sharp but any prolonged use and they make a right mess of your index finger because of the thin metal bladed handle rubbing against it, especially if prepping something like cabbage that requires a bit of pressure

The only real good point with them is that you can keep them sharp (although not any sharper than other premium knives) and they do look really smart especially for a home cook

The best knives by a mile in my opinion are the top end Henckels, I prefer the handels of the 'Professional S' range but the '5 star' range is also superb, the 'twin cuisine' and '4 star' ranges are very good also so try to find a handle that suits you

Had some of my Henckels Professional S knives a couple of years (being used loads every day) and they are still like razors

If I was to start again from the beginning as a chef with no knives then Henckels are the only ones I would buy.

PS, They sometimes have them in TKMaxx dirt cheap, well worth checking out

my point is they're rubbish knifes that are posted here - im not debating which knifes are better I was making a recommendation, and for these knifes I DO NOT recommended, although globals are more for professional use they are still very good knifes to buy for home use as they'll last a life time - Ive had mine 10 years plus and they're as sharp as they were when they were new.

Im not angry at all im merely giving my opinion & recommendation.

I bought my Parents these Victorinox knives last Xmas. They're really good/sharp knives at a reasonable price and the delivery was free. You also get a small paring knife free. Victorinox has a very good reputation.

Serrated blades. Not much good for anything but the lightest of tasks I'm afraid. Cool knife block though.

Henckels Five Star 7 Piece Knife Block Set £140 which is half price.

Wow you guys are passionate about knives, it almost turns you, by the sound of it. A cut above the rest. LOL.
I reckon I am going for the Henckels.

I prefer "Sabatier" knives myself, much better quality and well ballanced.

The knives on this deal here are indeed rubbish as you rightly state

The point I was making is that everytime a knife deal is posted on here, everyman and his dog jumps on the Global bandwagon as they are so well known and lets be honest look fantastic in terms of design

However the one knife I would absolutely not recommend for professional use or the serious cook is the Global range due to its one piece metal construction which ruins your fingers and doesn't stay as sharp in my opinion as some of the other Japanese knives and some of the European knives

If I was just a home cook don't get me wrong they are absolutely the set of knives I would own either in the Global knife block or even better on the Global magnet due to the wow factor when people walk in your kitchen

Opinions will always differ, Gordon Ramsay swears by Wusthof knives, Jamie Oliver prefers Henckels, Heston Blumenthal uses Tojiro senkou (which I have never used) however these chaps could well be paid as a sponsorship to use these knives ? Who knows.

Whichever knife you choose make sure you get a good quality steel to hone it with and sharpen it regularly (everytime you use it really, if only for a couple of strokes)

I recommend 1 of these and it should last you many years, just stroke the knife down it at about a 15 degree angle, the finer the angle the sharper you will get your blade.
http://www.nisbets.co.uk/products/ProductDetail.asp?SiteType=&productCode=D161

I go through a couple of these a year but it gets used loads, after every sharpen give the steel a wipe with a cloth to get rid of the metal dust shavings, you will be amazed how much comes off and after you do the steel will be as good as new again

I bought these, after one week the small knife snapped whilst crushing garlic!
Poor quality, must have been vastly overpriced in the first place
:x
Sent them back for refund
#33
These are indeed very poor quality. Don't be fooled by stay sharp.
All blades need sharpening and these are serrated so can't be sharpened.
The blades are poor and blunt after a few months.
They are also bad in construction, very flimsy.
Better off investing a bit more in better knives and please, no-one mention the flimsy rubbish from Robert Dyas that purport to be Sabatier knives....a poor imitation of a real Sabatier.
