Japanese knifes

Have any of you guys invested in a set of Japanese or even just a single Japanese knife before? They look the business and I heard they are sharp as hell and quite expensive. I cook quite a lot, is it worth getting a set?

i got a load of global knifes - end up getting abit obsessed with them.
got about 13+ but only really use two all the time and the odd one occasionally.
they do some really cool japanese or oriental knives you can use for most things.

I keep waiting to see a deal on a Global GS 20-24cm knife but I never do.

Japanese steel is made differently i think? Put below freezing after forging to maintain sharpness longer or somesuch technique... not cheap though.

Got some Japanese knives when I was working abroad, very good.

That table seems to show £100+ for something decent, unfortunately I wouldn't trust housemates with that, I just know someone would damage/break it.

Yes they are sharp and can chop through a cucumber in seconds, but on the down side they dont fit in the dishwasher :thumbsup:

I'm guessing with money.

Bought the GS-36 for £22 with a sharpener a couple of years ago and use it for everything.
