I bought a set of Chroma knives & like them, I was used to heavier German knives and the Chroma's feel lighter. They seem to hold an edge well however a couple had slight burrs on the blade edge when I received them, I used a smooth steel & they're still razor sharp. I tend to hold a knife close to the blade & like Chroma's seamless blade to handle transition. I have no experience with Global but I just read Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential & he recommends them.

Now we just need to find someone who has used both brands.

I bought these




from GUNTER WILHELM and am completely happy with them. In fact, once I used these, I gave away my Henckles knives.

Global makes a heavyweight/heavy weight line of knives that are more the weight of european cutlery.

Hello and welcome to DC. The picture of the knives from Gunter Wilhelm really look awsome - thanks Caine for the picture.

I'm looking into getting some Globals, I used one at a friends house and fell in love with it, it seemed like it was made for my hands it was that comfortable to use for me.

I always thought Globals were the ugliest knives ever, so I ignored them for a long time. I was in Williams Sonoma one day and they had a knife demo and the Globals (among others) were out so I picked one up and then it was all over. It was so light and fit my hand so well, I didn't want to put it down! Went home and did a little online homework, then eventually ordered carving, chef's and vegetable knives. Almost didn't get the veg. knife, but now it's my best friend. I expect I'll be adding others to the block soon.
