4 knives and 1 block = 5 pieces!

Yes, the fifth piece is the block itself. I'd like some decent knives but I can't justify £200. I'd rather have a holiday!!

likewise.. im making do with a fairly mediocre james martin set which i paid 60 quid for, theyre ok.. but one day...... when i own my own kitchen/house. then im going to blow a grand a full set of globals.

Very difficult getting heat for things like this on HUKD, many people can't see the value (which I think is pretty good, for 5 Global knives. Considering Global are mid-range in the quality steelware world you can pay a lot more for good knives).

I value a good knife but how
do you judge the quality and
efficiency of them ?

IF you have Costco membership, they do a set (6 knives / 1 block) for under £200. May even be worth buying the membership for £25 to get the additional 2 pieces if you had a Costco near you.

In my view, a good kitchen knife should slice/cut/dice cleanly with very little effort. A common test I have seen is to slice through a ripe tomato. If the knife presses down on the tomato, it is not very sharp.

OP Voted hot - decent price for decent knives.

Tesco regularly have Global knifes on offer for around this price. Shoppers at Aldi go their because it budget why they insist on trying to sell premium products to try and change their image i do not know, this is not going to get them more custom and will end up in the reduced basket in a few weeks because no one has bought them

Can see a few

Can see a few people getting attention from store managers, surrounded in open knife block sets and sliced tomatoes straight from the produce aisle.

Is there a shop you can go to test knifes, it's generally not till they're bought and home that you find if they're the quality they boast.

You're wasted on HUKD, you should set you self up as a Management Consultant and sell your services to Aldi, they may just tell you to FRO though as they seem to be doing alright in taking market share off Tesco etc.

I think that when an item that is fantastically expensive gets reduced in price the fact that you can't get it cheaper elsewhere doesn't necessarily make it a bargain. I have a couple of global knives but they are not my favourite. You can get some pretty decent knives in tk max for about a tenner......... I really don't feel a global equivalent would be 9x better . not voted either way.

get to home sense kai knives - normally £100+ each currently between 15 - 20 quid a piece - they are awesome - i got a full set - well worth the cost will last a life time!!!
