Found 6th Sep 2017
I thought this was a really good buy. £45 on Amazon which is already cheap in my opinion. Even cheaper through tesco for £39.99 (and 39 clubcard points !)

Japanese knives known for extreme quality.

I find the Valyrian steel to last longer , picked up a Longclaw in westeros for nothing and never looked back

Negative . I buy similar knives for £ 3 -£ 5 in tkmaxx. What is the use of this super expensive knife ? Better recyle your old knife to the metal recycle and get a new knife for £3-£5.

OK
Yes great ..got a set for £99 a couple of years ago and like new toda
I love knives....
Great knives, Costco have a set reduced to £199 in store
From the photo, these are the cheaper range of Globals (red logo). Still not bad but they don't have the weighted hilt and quality isn't quite on par
Perfect for roadmen
Do you wanna know why I use... A knife?
Guns for show, knives for a pro.

So, any alternatives to knives like these?

Getting into cooking and would like a nicer blade than supermarket special ones..
You had me at £3.99. You lost me when I realized I can't read properly this early in the morning.

You'll occasionally get a good priced Henkel knife in TKMAXX but not been in recently. Got to keep any knife sharp though. Idiot proof sharpening system here - ebay.co.uk/itm…FS6.
The benefit of this one is you don't need to remove the knife to sharpen each side - so the angles stay exactly the same.

It's a copy of a Lansky system - lansky.com/ind…em/ so likely there's good youtube vids for tutorials.

Also keep it sharp in between times with something like this - ikea.com/gb/…03/

where what how when
Popped in to the maxx to see what they had -

Half realistic RRP.

8" Chefs Knife - £24.99
5 1/2" Santoku knife - £16.99
5" Petty Knife - £19.99

Best Henckels knife I've had was a cheap plastic moulded handle utility knife that cost about £6.

go to ikea the 365+ ones are like these globals (all metal) but with a different design into handle
these full metal types like the global and the ikea 365+ are considered dangerous by professional chefs cos once they get a bit wet they are hard to keep a good grip on because it just has tiny dimples in it which by design don't offer much grip.

the ones which i would recommend are the Ikea vorda which have the same shape handle as these globals but with a rubberised grip the steel is high quality and they are CHEAP
ikea do a few different sharpeners too the good one is a copy of a minosharp with three rotating wheels inside for about 8 quid called skarande its excellent. the ceramic sharpening "steel" called flaksa is also good for quickly aligning the blades i got one on sale donkeys ago and its still working well

also get a good chopping board because bad boards will destroy your knives really quickly

Which professional chefs?

I was a chef in the army and then for sodexho and then worked at several high end hotels. Globals were and still are the most preferred knives. I've never met a professional chef that hates them.

Yeah, I'm using a wet stone and a steel honer at the moment, but as mentioned the top range supermarket ones doesn't really hold its edge too long.. I end up keep using the stone every couple of weeks...
