And that is the second time it has broken 😦 We had it re-shaped already.

I almost got those knives cos they look awesome and feel good in the hand but went with solid old mundial…

Is that a global? I assume having it re-shaped will never be as strong as the original. How did you break it in the first place?

On the positive side, knife shopping is pretty good fun!

Also, to be honest I don’t think I’ll buy global in the future though. I find that the flat top edge can give me blisters if I’m using it a lot. Some of the other brands have a more rounded top edge. However, they are very soft steel so they are easy to sharpen with relatively basic home sharpeners. The German steels tend to be a lot harder to sharpen, but they hold their edge better (so I hear anyway).

reshaped in the first place cos it snapped cutting mars bar slice!

they never touched the handle though as far as i know.

we’ll see how we go with the knife shopping…

Yeah mundial knives are where it’s at…

Again – Mundial has done us 5 years so far (and many a Mars Bar slice!)

we havent looked back with our Wusthof Classics….Recommend recommend recommend!!!…also the Shun Chef’s knife is be-au-tif-ul! (not only in functionality but also aesthetically – bonus!)

…I’m currently chasing up ordering a fair few Shun chef’s knives probably around the 8 inch size if you’re interested but there’d be a long wait on them…and they’d be about $120ish for one (beautiful) knife which I dont know if you think is fine or outragously excessive….! 🙂

Yeh we have a set of Mundials, but I must admit, the global was my favourite.
Jess – those Shun knives look pretty hot – I may be interested, but I had better shop around a little bit first… Thanks for the offer!
