Bought these for £19 before xmas. They are solid, heavyweight knives, well worth the money.

Head Added. I bought these from Harlow on Friday last week.

Very good quality, sturdy, well weighted and good looking knives. At £2.19 per knife - You'd not be able to buy anything close to the quality elsewhere. Much better than my previous moulded handle knifes.

Now i need to find a decent sharpening set to keep them in good order. Any ideas?

Good deal.Managed to get a set of these knives when posted last week.Good knives for the price if you can find stock.

I was thinking the same thing.This may be of some help amazon.co.uk/gp/…E1J
You will also need a honing steel to maintain the sharpened edge.

or perhaps one of these which I got at Christmas, gives my Global knives a better edge that they've ever had

Thanks roister and CyBerman, I was thinking of the Whetstone (the linked one does seem like a great deal), but that seemed like a lot of fannying about to do and being a novice i'd have a high chance of getting the blade angle all wrong and ruining a decent set of knives.

I was thinking of combining the Anysharp to get the correct angle as needed, along with a diamond coated honing steel for more regular smoothing of the blade.

Has anyone used honing steels before, are they easy to get the hang of?

Using a wetstone and steel is more effort and a skill to be learned.I have never done it before but i would like to learn, practicing on some old knives i have.There are guides on utube.Whatever method is used a blunt knive used in the kitchen is more dangerous than a sharp one , so they say.
