General Information

This 8-in. all-purpose Chef's Knife is Global's most popular knife. Your top choice for slicing large quantities of vegetables, fruit and meat quickly and effectively. Loved by professional chefs around the world, Global knives are an excellent choice for the serious home cook. The thin and razor sharp Global blade allows the cook to cleanly slice through foods, preserving the integrity of the ingredient and maximizing its flavor. The majority of Global knives are ground to a straight point rather than the western style of beveling the edge. To balance their knives Global uses a hollow handle that is filled with just the right amount of sand to create the correct balance. The handle has its own unique darkened dimples for a non-slip grip. Because the knives are very light weight they reduce hand fatigue. Global knives have a smooth contour and seamless, all stainless construction that eliminates food and dirt traps. Global knifes are forged in Japan from CROMOVA 18 Stainless Steel, a blend of 18 percent chromium for good stain resistance plus molybdenum and vanadium which gives excellent edge retention.

Pros: Somewhat comfortable, excellent control when trimming, decent price point.
Cons: Blade is in consistent need of honing and resharpening
I got mine a little over two years ago as a christmas gift and I still use it every day.  An overall solid knife, nothing to write home about, but out of the box it'll cut anything you need it to, shy of large bones or something; the only major issue that you will have with this guy is the incessant need to hone and sharpen the blade to the point that it becomes annoying.  The tip of my blade has since been chipped from a coworker knocking it off of the line by accident, but reworking the tip with a torch and a flat tenderizing mallet did the trick just fine.  For the price it's a great investment for someone getting into the industry, but I wouldn't recommend it much further than that, unless you wanted something pretty to show off at dinner parties that is also reasonably functional.

Pros: great weight and balance. very durable in hard environments
Cons: Terrible edge, and will never hold its edge
Global knives were in my mind the chef knife to have. As a professional chef i'm always looking for a better tool. I bought the Global 8in. It has great weight, and is durable to withstand the hard environment of a working kitchen. The only problem is keeping it sharp, I mean properly. It never came back to that beautifully new sharp. I had it professionally sharpened and it dulled in about an hour. I ended up giving it away. Huge disappointment!
