I want to preface this thread by stating that I have been in this business since I was 14, I am now 38. At 35, I was tired of "the life" and went corporate. Amazingly I had been able to raise a family and keep my original wife whilst working in restaurants. However it was time for a change. I hung up my trustee Global G-66 Oriental Chef knife (which replaced my "misplaced" G-48 Santoku) and went to a work for corporate America. The point of this thread is about knives, so let me get to it. I have taken on a new position in the company that requires me to bring out that old knife bag and do some real work (YAY!) However my trustee G-66 has been our home knife for 3 years now, and my wife is not willing to let it go without a fight. So I entered the world of knife shopping. Now let me tell you, I loved my Global knives. However I quickly realized that they have fallen out of favor on the "all knowing, all powerful internet." After much reading and debating I settled on a Masamoto VG 210 Gyuto. Which do not get me wrong, is a lovely knife. I enjoy it very much. However it almost seems too fragile for everyday kitchen usage. Maybe I am wrong but I live my life by first impressions....I went back to Globals and bought a Global Sai-01 Chefs Knife. Which feels like a heavy duty knife that will stand up to anything I will throw at it. Anyone have experience with the Sai products from Global? I cannot find a whole lot of real world information on this particular line of Global knives. Am I wrong a the Masamoto? Opinions? Thoughts?
