Loving these knives so far, they are super sharp and slice nicely. Plus they look good and feel nice in your hand
I bought this set back in 2008, and they are still in fantastic condition. One of the plastic see-through sections in the wood block has broken, but that was due to my carelessness. The knives themselves are in great shape. A great addition to my kitchen :)
Absolutely awesome, I have had a few knife blocks over the time but this is hands down the best set ever, these Global knifes are so sharp, the cut through everything, they feel so comfortable in my hand, a nice weight in the hand. Then there is the block set it comes with, the clear plastics make selection easier as well as showing off these great knifes, if your looking for a great knife set then go no further.
It feels like everything you cut is melting butter. Knives are perfectly balanced in the hand and easy to use. So sharp too!
This block set is fantastic! Super sharp and Choice magazine rates them as no. 1 too!
Best knives I have ever used, easy to hold, so sharp, love how finely you can chop,so pleased with my purchase.
Great set of knives. Best aspect of this Global knife set compared to sets of many other brands is no wasting money on a mandatory pair of scissors. The knives? V Sharp, ergonomic, and retains edges well. Recommended use with the minosharp sharpener, and the occasional whetstone.
Best knives ever, easy to hold, lightweight and so sharp it's effortless to cut
Best knives I have ever used. I bought 1 to try and loved it so much my husband bought me the box set.They are so sharp its like cutting thru butter. It really does make a huge difference with what you can do, and how finely you can chop with a great knife.
Best buy I ever made! Unbelievabley sharp! Not only that they look so elegant on the kitchen bench in this block holder
these are the best investmet i ever made - the best knives ive ever used
We love these knives, I didnt realise my knives were so bad!!!, I love chopping up the veges and the bread knife is amazing. The knife block is easy to see, rather than the blocks were you cant see whats fallen into the dark holes...
I have always loved Global knives for their beauty and handling but when I saw this set on sale I decided they would make a great gift for someone I know who had only 1 decent knife. Service was really prompt and efficient too, they were delivered quickly, and look great. Thanks!
Best knives I have ever used
I am so happy with these knives. They are light and easy to use! I love them :)
Every knife you could possibly need in a kitchen is included in this set. They are sharp, light and well balanced.
These knives are incredible. Personally I don't really like the look of the knife block but the ways these things cut, i don't care what the block looks like. I love just cutting through things and then feeling how smooth the area is where the knife cut through. Oh they really are amazing and a necessary investment.
what can i say they are perfect
I have been so happy with these knives. Exactly what I was expecting and more. They look great and are so sharp too. Hoping to keep my cuts to a minimum!
I had used these knives before as my friend has them. They are fantastic and the knife block looks great! I seriously cannot imagine cooking without them!
We love our Global knife block set, it makes food preparation really easy and enjoyable! the knife block also looks fab on our kitchen benchtop. Good quality knives and worth the money.
I love this block of knives, firstly it fits nicely on the kitchen bench and most importantly it makes all the food prep such as chopping the veggies a breeze and is actually enjoyable. The only down side is its taken a while to get used to the sharpness, I've cut my fingers more times than I care to admit!!
After long debate, I decided to go Global. My old knives, Wiltshire Staysharp, were not cutting well . The Bismark are sharp but heavier. The ease, lightness, sharpness( yes, the new cut on my bench courtesy a slip the other day!) is out of this world. I didn't know what I was missing out on. I love the slim blade as it makes cutting everything from fine veges and fruits to melon and pumpkin, huge cuts of meat even- like slicing warm butter. My boys prefer the chunkier Bismark knives, and they can have them too. I will never go back after my first Global . Terrific.
The knife we all know are great, they arrived on time and my wife and daughter love them
The wifey was very happy with her XMAS Pressy. Best knife set we have ever had.
Glenmore Park NSW Aust
Very happy with my purchase. New knives for our new kitchen - fit in with decor and a quality product matched with efficient service abd easy ordering from Kitchenwaredirect. Thanks
Very sharp and good to use
Very sharp and good to use
Nothing comes close to these knives. Cooking is a passion of mine and I have found them such a pleasure to use. I recently purchased the ceramic water sharpener as well and they came up razor sharp like new again.
I'm so excited. I've never had a good set of knives before and one of my pet hates is cutting up pumpkin....not anymore! My Global cook's knife went through it like butter. I couldn't help laughing everytime I cut it because I just couldn't believe how easy it was. It's literally changed how I feel about cooking. All of a sudden the prep work isn't nearly the pain I've always found it to be. These knives are nothing short of miraculous!! Love them, love them, love them.
Best ever knives, cut anything!! Superb design! They arrived so quickly from Kitchenware direct, and at a very good price too!
What great knives and how cheap are they are global knives. I've had so many comments on them. Also had brillant, quick service from kitchen direct.
I boughts a set for my son & I was so impressed I bought a set for myself. A perfect knife in the kitchen is a must and these are the pefect knives
i brought the globle knife block set as i work in a kitchen at a busy pub and everyone i work with said to get them so i did, im so glad i did, the best i have ever used, they came really fast,didn't have to wait long at all, they are so good im gonna buy another set for home, the best thing i have brought for not only work but home, very very happy
Beautiful looking knives and stand, excellent price, as mentioned by other reviewers they do need sharpening, but dont find this to be a problem. Am very happy with my purchase!
These knives are the best I have ever bought, I should have got them years ago, Thank You.
These are the best knives I have ever had. They arrived very promptly without any fuss and they really look good in the block. I am so pleased my sister recommended that I buy these knives as she swears by them and they cut so beautifully I can't believe how great they are! I also purchased the knife sharpener as you cannot have a great set of knives without a really god sharpener, but have not used this yet.
They are the best knives I have owned, it is a breeze cutting things now. And the prompt service made it even easyer
We love our knife set, they are very sharp, great handles, excellent service and a very reasonable price.
Absolutely love this knife set. Great, sleek design. Light-weight too which is perfect for women like myself (my male partner loves them as well though!). Sturdy block which has minimal space for germs/bacteria to live, in comparison to the solid wooden knife blocks.
I bought these knives for my son for his birthday. I alreay have a set, but I paid more than TWICE for them 3 years ago. So they represent great value and know he will love them like I do. This is the second item I have purchased from Kitchenware direct and I am impressed with you prices and prompt delivery. Thankyou.
when I told my Chef daughter about these knives she said they must be copies as that was too cheep for the genuine article , then when she saw them she was very impressed
Kitchenware direct it's the first time I have dealt with your company and I just want to express my sincere appreciation to a great company with fantastic products, customer service and postage!! Everything arrived perfectly, i'm so happy!! Oh by the way the knife block is classy, SHARP and amazing!! PS. it is that sharp I accidently cut my thumb getting the plastic wrapping off the knife!!
Extremely sharp, look fantastic. Definitely the best knife set I have ever owned. The wife loves them.
Finally I have my own set of glabal knives. And for half the price of what they cost in shops.
Beautiful set of knives that are a pleasure to use. They literally glide through any food you might like to cut.
Great set of knives. In addition to the expceptional quality knives which I have used before, I chose this set because the knives do not slot into individual slots which I dislike as they get dirty and are not easy to clean. In this set the knives hang loose behind the clear front. This ensures that the block stays much cleaner. Great service, delivery and feedback at a great price.
New house and thought new knives and all I can say is wow. Why didnt I invest in some quality knives in the past. First time I used them I kept looking for random things to cut/slice cause I couldnt believe how easy and smoothly it would glide through things. Do your self a favour and get it!
The knives arrived a week earlier than expected - just in time for Christmas! They looked great, felt great and worked like a dream. Carving the Christmas Turkey was never this easy. All this at a great price makes for the best Christmas present.
Seacombe Heights, SA
What a fantastic buy! best set of knives I've ever used.First class purchase & first class service from Kitchenware direct.
I'm truly amazed at how sharp these Global knives are! My husband got them for me for Chrissy, and we spent the morning cutting through things in awe! Fantastic price for amazing value.
The six knifes for-fill every use that an amateur/semi-pro needs, from fine petite cuts, slicing bread and dicing into course chunks. Awesome knife block at very competitive price .
I brought this knife set as a gift for my son. Not only do they look very stylish, he reports they are extremely good to use.
Narellan Vale NSW
I bought this set for my sister for Christmas and now I WANT it. I am so jealous, the knives are great and the block is so stylish and looks awesome in her kitchen.
Makes the most mundane food prep an absolute pleasure. Beautifully light and comfortable to hold and lethally sharp. Be careful! The hanging block with see-thru cover is miles ahead of a solid block and looks very swish. The set is a bargain compared with buying individually and the range is really useful. The bonus sharpener is very good. Delivery was swift. After multiple purchases, can't speak too highly of Kitchenware Direct.
These knives are fantastic. Comfortable in the hand, super sharp and easy to use. They look great in our kitchen too! Having good quality knives makes cooking so much easier, you won't be disappointed. Delivery and service from kitchenware direct is second to none.
Super fast delivery!! cheapest price that i could find! Perfect set which are SUPER sharp. and the bonus sharpener are great (not that i will need them !!)
Have bought this for my new kitchen because they not only look great, but are going to look beautiful on my bench. I purchased this product also because of the great reviews that i read.
just recently bought this knife block, was planning to use it for home but it was so good that i had to use it at work. does the job, stays sharp and very comfortable to hold. dont think you can get any good knives, at this price, that can be used at a professional kitchen and at home
I am completely happy with these knives and I think they'll last me a lifetime. The perfect choice.
Amazing so light but perfectly weighted as a committeed home cook I still struggle to finely chop onions...but now I know why I had rubbish knives! Chopping is now a dream...just watch those fingers!
Love these knifes - they are soooo sharp, easy to clean great knife block to store - one problem , my husband now wants to chop all My cooking ingrediants. Bought 2nd set for my daughters.
Beautifully presented. Unbelievably sharp. Great weight and size for my hand. Love them.
I have wanted new knives for ages.these are fantastic!! I had done a fair bit of research comparing brands and I am so happy. I just laughed when slicing my first tomato! They are light and the set looks stylish fantastic! Only toook 3 days from order...fantastic service, thanks.
great service, quick delivery, great knife set how sharp are they! different handle and shape but does not take long to get used to them.
Cutting edge design make these knives so comfortable to use. They look great and are amazingly sharp. My work in the kitchen now seems so much easier thanks to these chef standard knives!
Altona Meadows, Victoria
As already mentioned these knives are top draw..... No faulting them, they are the best knives i have used! The knife block is really smart but mine unfortunately arrived with numerous scratches on the perspex which we quite noticeable... Customer services were excellent and sent me a free returns label to send the block back whilst i keep hold of the knives and use the everyday.
when these arrived in a big box with all other goodies my partner purchased for our new house! they proudly sit on my kitchen bench next for all to see!! the best gift ever
I have never used knives like these, they are amazing and glide through the toughest foods with ease.So happy with my bday present.
I was trying to cut a tomato the other day and got so frustrated with the blunt knife I was using...that I decided enough was enough and hopped staright onto the KitchenwareDirect site to do some research. It was a no-brainer...I ordered the Global Ikasu 7 pc Knife Block Set. it arrived in no time at all and my husband and I LOVE them !! He is even more over the moon than I am (if that's possible !!) They are sharper and (cut) glide through everything much better and easier than our last knives did even after they had just been sharpened. These Global knives are PURE MAGIC...wish I'd bought them years ago :)
Excellent knives. Quick postage and well packaged.
This knife set has changed my life! They are such a pleasure to use and have made life in the kitchen much smoother and easier. Why didn't I buy them years ago?
I purchased this knife block set as a wedding gift and they were excellent value, this a sensational discount from the RRP! The free delivery was an added bonus and the package arrived in excellent condition within 3 business days. I can only give 4 stars as I cannot comment on the use of the knives as they were a gift but the receiver has a couple of global knives already and raves about them! So I assume this product would be of the same high quality.
Extremely happy with the knives and after reading the other reviews before my own purchase, I can only reiterate what other people have said.Look great, feel great and are very good knives.
I've always wanted a really good set of knives after watching my mum struggle with crappy knives so after reading other reviews on this site decided to buy these knives. I can't rate them enough, they are amazing!
These knives are amazing and so well priced. Kitchenware direct provided excellent value and quick delivery. Thank you for this amazing service!
Fantastic Service next day delivery, and the knives are the best & sharpest knives I've ever used. Nice light weight handles makes using them effortless.
Global knives would have to be the best knives on the planet!!!! (well that i've tried so far anyway). Excellent product, prompt delivery and cheap price i don't think i could ask for anything more.... note to other Global users though - do not put them in the dishwasher!!!! i did this with a big 27cm cooks knife and the handle snapped off (granted after about 2 years) whilst chopping chocolate.
After much searching on the internet about the best value for money QUALITY knives, I opted for this set. It was out of Wusthorf, Mundial and Global and I thought my culinary skills were not up to scratch to spend $800 on a set of wusthorfs, and colleagues who were mundial users said its pretty good but Global were better (endorsed by Masterchef and also Japanese are renowned for samurai sharp knives!) They are pretty light weight and I love that it doesnt have plastic or wooden handles. Its more hygienic to use and clean. Also the knives are razor sharp and easy to manoeuvre for a non expert like me. I am really liking these and I bought them on sale which was even a better bargain. So far no issues and I am really pleased with it. And it was quick easy delivery too! 4 stars since I have only been using them for a month.....
After making do with many different types of knives for most of my life to have a set so easily accessible, good looking and bloody sharp is a bonus I deserve in my latter years. I nearly sliced a finger just taking them out of the plastic holder. Great feel and weight and extremely useful in the kitchen. Well done Global *****
Bought these knives during the Masterchef's final show. They arrived way earlier than I had expected, in a very secure postage box. First time I used one of the knives I was cutting up potatoes for mash. Cutting through the potato so easily I immediately assumed that the potato must have been old and soft to cut it so perfectly and with ease. But the vegetable was firm, so I got my old knife out and realized that I had been literally HACKING at my vegetables, when the new knives would cut them beautifully. Since then I have not looked back. I love carving roasts with the knives and being able to make precision cuts with fruits and vegetables for salads. Strongly recommend these to anyone that wants to cut their cooking time in half to a more quality experience in the kitchen.
My daughter has been struggling for years with bad knives. I bought this set for her birthday, and her praise of the set is loud. She is telling all her friends about it. I have one Gobal Ikasu Chef's knife, and wish now I'd bought the set for myself!
We live self-sufficently on a small farm and are always processing our own food. Buying these knifes iis the best investment I have made in years. Cutting up fruit for preserves, slicing proscuitto made from our pigs or butchering a steer , are all a breeze with my lovely new Global knifes.
Made the purchase for my partner ,..,.. He thinks I paid at least $500 omg the price I paid was amazing compared to the prices in the shops. I love these chef knifes. Few of my friends have now made the same purchase once I told them where I got them from and the price. They really are stylish, and profession. Best thing is I received it in just 2 days. A++++++ very happy customer
The knives themselves get 5 stars because they are amazing. I was disappointed however to find out that what looks like glass in the picture is only plastic, and it's not held in place so if you pick up the knife set the plastic pieces slip out (for example when you are cleaning the counter underneath the knife set.) This is not a huge deal so I only took off one star, but it would really make a big difference in the appearance of quality if it were glass. Why make a product of such great quality look cheaper by using plastic in the case? There is another case that is silver and black but that didn't go with my kitchen so I went with this case.
Hunter Valley, NSW
These knives are fantastic! Balance really well in the hand and are so sharp - they totally demolished pumpkin which I normally dread cutting. I'm very happy with them.
This is the first time my husband and I have invested in great knives. Wow. Life is so much easier in the kitchen. Beautiful product.
I am professonal chef and I am HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT I have been using other brand product for a few years. My boss is using the GLOBAL IKASU knife. I have been try his IKASU knife and I LOVE IT. Firstly IT IS VERY LIGHT AND SHARP and also they are easily sharpened with the water sharpener and will cut through anything I throw at them. THEY ARE COMFORTABLE TO HOLD AND LOOKS GREAT WITH KITCHEN SIZE SHAPE EASY TO USE WELL WEIGHTED PRICE CAN'T IMAGINE KITCHEN WITHOUT MY IKASU KNIFE BLOCK SET You wanna be a professional chef in your kitchen then get GLOBAL IKASU KNIFE BLOCK SET NOW!!! THANK YOU KITCHENWARE DIRECT!!! Been looking for good price for long time.
Best knives ever, smooth and easy transaction... Thank you
I ordered these knives for my friend's 40th birthday. They arrived the very next day, and he is thrilled with them. His wife has even allowed the block to reside on the bench of their very minimalist kitchen! Thanks for such an efficient delivery of an excellent product.
Fantastic knives, don't know how we ever did without them!! I had used my father's global knives and I was VERY impressed with the look and the quality but they were a bit too expensive at the shops. When I saw them on special here I jumped at the chance to have my own set!
I bought this knife set recently, the knifes are of the highest quality at an amazing price and they look fantastic on the kitchen bench. Will definetly purchase again from kitchenware direct amazing and fast service.
Just got them in the mail today had to try them out straight away. They are absolutely fantastic.
I purchased this set for my daughter as a Christmas present. I only ever use butcher recommended knives but after using these knives that will change. MOST IMPRESSED with the Knives and service of Kitchenware Direct
I had used my daughter's knives and i purchased my own when they were on special. What a bargain! They are the best knives that I've ever used. I recommend them to everyone.
So important to have a good set of knives. These are sharp, ideal weight and balance. Best investment. Will buy again if ever have to replace.
I finally lashed out and bought a set of Global knives after many years of wanting a set. There was absolutely no disappointment at all. They make chopping so easy enjoyable and the thought of cooking so exciting!!!
After chopping up a salad at a friends house I knew I had to have these knives in my kitchen. Like others am not sure how I managed with out them. The service I received was excellent and they were here within a few days after I place my order. Will continue to recommend to all my friends. Thanks
Mount Gambier SA
I received our big 2 box order today (which my partner placed) and found the knife set!!!! I didn't know he had got it for me, lets just say i shed a few tears when i saw it. now sitting proudly on my kitchen bench waiting to be used tonight :D

I am very happy with the Global knife set and also with the speed with delivery. A good experience. Recommend both knives and the site.
I first heard about Global Knives on Masterchef. This purchase is a must for anyone wanting quality knives at a great price.
I am thrilled with these knives. I honestly don't know how I ever managed without them. They are light and easy to use with the sharpest blades I have ever had the pleasure to work with.Treat yourself to a set and enjoy!
Mount Eliza, Victoria
This is my 4th set, one for main house, 2 sets for hoiday house and one for a gift. I ummed & arred if I should buy the contemporary stand but just love this wood stand as you can see the knives. These are the best knives. If you live in Melbourne near Minimax, they will sharpen at a charge every Monday and it is worth while annually. Great delivery service from this site & safe. Anne
Have never had shapr quality knives these are grea and it was susggested that i wear gloves tolearn and get used to using to avoid cutting myself ! I like the shape of the handles although they my be too small for people with bigger hands!
These kinda knives that you really need to keep an eye on your fingers.So sharp and also the handle feels pretty good...(not to mention that it looks good sitting on your bench top.) try get yourself a set.. no dissapointment...
This is a must have knife set for every kitchen. The feel and handle of each knife is second to none - even for a left hander.
These are a great investment, I personally have a set, they are light to hold have a good grip, and the blade honing is wonderful. I have purchase a set for my daughters birthday and plan to by for other family members.
I have had the same set of knives for over 20 years and these are just an absolute delight to use!!!
The knives are great - fantastic - excellent value, i liked them so much i bought a set for my friends. :)
My son who is a first year apprentice chef bought these knives and he is thrilled with them. Top quality knives, beautiful to use, price exceptional and they were delivered so quickly. Ordered Friday night, delivered Monday morning. Won't buy from retail outlets again, will be ordering again soon.
Hallett Cove SA
What a fantastic investment, preparing food is a dream with these knives. Great quality and honed in a way that makes them easy for lefties
Extremely sharp out of the box. Well balanced and nice to hold. Light weight which I love. My other quality knife was a bit on the heavy side and I could not get it nearly as sharp as the Gloabl knives. Highly recommended.
These are by far the best knives i have ever used. I work in hotel kitchen, so good knives are essential and these have really made my job easier. i recomend these to professionals and enthusiastic home cooks alike.
These knives are just brilliant, so sharp and great to use and we love the knife block. Would recommend this set to anyone.
Love my knives, they really are absolutely awsome .... Just watch your fingers ladies, these knives are like scalples ..... sharp ... very very very sharp.
Why did it take me so long to buy these...they make food preparation so much more enjoyable and easier!! Don't hesitate, they are worth every cent!
bought these for our son who is an apprentice chef. he is over the moon with the exceptional quality of these knived. we were pretty happy with the great price too!
These are the best knives I have ever used, and I am pretty fussy about how sharp my knives are. I can even use them to chop things straight into a bowl, without a chopping board, because the knives glide through things so easly. The knife block is also nice and slim for easy storage on the benchtop.
i bought this item through Kitchenware Direct due to the great price and customer reviews. It was for a wedding present which was listed on their bridal registry. the product was received in perfect condition within 5 working days and I certainly can't complain about the $150 saving!!! I must admit that I wanted to keep them for myself, they looked so good!
YALLOURN Victoria Australia
I was skeptical about the positive reviews on this brand, but I can honestly say these are the most amazing knives I've ever used. The word sharp has new meaning, these things don't cut but glide through anything they touch...and they look great too. Seriously, just buy it
These are the best knives you could buy, love them
I have been looking at these knives for nearly 18 months, but found it difficult to justify the cost. I took the plunge, my knives arrived and I love them, it was worth the wait....
Sharpest and most usable quality knife that I have ever used.
I recently bought a set of Global Knives from KWD and just love them. They are so sharp, light weight,and "slimline" block set holds knives so neatly in place. KWD customer service were very efficient and helpful, a rarity today.
Its so excellent to have knives that work so well! These are great, and I love the feel of them, wish I bought them sooner. So sharp though, careful when washing them!
Sharp, lightweight, durable, stylish and value for money - there is no comparison in my opinion!I I highly recommend this product and I highly recommend Kitchenware Direct for their efficient, friendly online shopping service.
great knives, ergonomic, and comparatively lightweight making them ideal for me- woman with small hands.Love it. Problem is they are REALLY sharp and we have a had a few accidents! Highly recommend
Really loving having sharp knives in the house though have to be more careful now when slicing away. Delievery was great, woulod definitley use this site again.
These knives are wonderful and the knife block looks great. It has perspex down the sides to keep the knives clean. A good mix of knives included that will do just about everything you need. A really great price too given what it still retails for in the stores.
Fantastic knives...I'm amazed at the quality of the product and the very reasonable price supplied by KitchenWareDirect. A purchase that I should have made a long time ago!
Interesting modern block, supremely light (actually really important even though you don't immediately think of it) and obviously razor sharp knives. Given as present to boyfriend, who didn't think we needed new knives until he cut himself with this set (showing how blunt our other knives were)! Would recommend
these knives are worth every cent, I can't stop finding things to chop and slice. If you are looking for fantastic knives get these.
The shipping was great for this set of knives and it arrived beautifully wrapped as requested for an xmas gift. First thing, the knives themselves are really great. However I find some of them weird sizes... I would prefer a couple were larger/longer. I also find the vertical placement of the knives in the block to be a bit awkward and I'm sure the block will get cut up near the entry holes from missing the hole on the first try when stored under cupboards, etc.
My knife set is fantastic so lite and easy to handle. Delivery was really fast and easy, can't wait to add to my collection!
Beautiful to use! Excellent quality! An absolutety stylish addition to the kitchen decor! Fabulous gift!
Coffs Harbour, NSW
I went everywhere in the Boxing day sales looking for my new Global knife block. I wasn't able to buy them anywhere near as good as the price that Kitchenware Direct sell them for. I came straight home and bought them online. This site is my boxing day sale all year round :) Thankyou
Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast, QLD
Global knives are simply the best. They hold their edge and are always sharp and easy to care for. Love these knives
My son-in-law always carves at Christmas, this was the first Christmas he has never moaned about my blunt knives, why? because he was using my new Global knives, never again will I hear him complain
Mt Waverley Vic 28/12/10
After years of using blunt and dull knives, that never keep a sharp edge, I am now in knife heaven. I show off to all my friends. Thank you
Onslow WA 6710
Best purchase I have ever made
All these years of having knives these are the best, they cut all foods like butter
For the first time in my life, I have the the right tools for the job! It's unbelievable how superior these knives are to every knife I've used before. They are super sharp, and easy to use and clean!
Love, love,love my new knife set. They are so easy to handle and I feel like a chef when I use them. Great asset in my new kitchen.
I've been wanting to buy these knives for a long time. When my daughter found them on your site for a great price we quickly decided ok I will purchase them now. I'm sooo happy with them, they are sharp and light and they were delivered in a couple of days. Fantastic
Melbourne Victoria 15/11/2010
Absolutely delighted with my purchase Would recommend without any hesitation
I oooohhhhh'd & aaaaaahhhh'd when I first used these knives. My hubby thought I was crazy and overreacting. That was, until he used them to cut up bulk meat and realised for himself, just how incredible these knives are!
I din't realise what I was missing out on until I bought these knives. They are fantastic, nice blades and really well balanced.
Ive always had top quality knive, but the set of Global knive which arrived in a few days are by far the sharpest cooking knife i have owened.I would recomend them to anyone.Beware do not let the kid near them the are far to sharp..
We purchased our set of Global knives about 9 years ago, and when searching for a 60th birthday present we immediately thought of a set of global knives. KItchenwareDirect was priced competitively so we purchased in total 3 sets... All for gifts... No need to try before you buy... believe us, they are great !!!
excellent product. my apprentice chef son loves them and says they are the best knives he's used. price and free shipping were unbeatable. very happy customer
My knife block set arrived very quickly and is beautiful and what a wonderful price. The knives are amazing and the block is so attractive.
When I read that people had cut themselves with these knives I thought it was just an operator error.... But I have cut myself a couple of times as there seems to be no resistance when cutting. The knives just glide through everything... I am really glad I bought these and would recommend them to anyone wanting a good set of sharp knives- but beware to start until you get used to them...
Fantastic price! Very light, VERY sharp, great grip and easy to use. Love the stylish stand. Extremely happy with a great set of knives after 30 years of struggling with 'cheapies'.
My dad bought these knives for my partner and i as a housewarming present, they are truly amazing, such good quality, so sharp, easy to hold and you can slice with applying no force or pressure at all
Now have the full set. Perfect for all cutting . Love all the different sizes. I have RSI and now can use these knives with no problems. Love them.
fantastic knifes.. dont bother looking at another brand.. this is the best..
Do yourself a favour - Can not believe how good these knives are - just BRILLIANT!!!
I have a number of top quality knives, but my Global knives are the best.They are well balance and very sharp.It just cut through anything without much effort.They also looks fantastic
Absolutely incredible set of knives. They have the killer looks and are super sharp to boot. Cut through a raw potato as if it is soft butter. Only issue I have is that the block that came with mine is slightly rocky and does not sit sturdy on the bench.
I love love love love my Global knives. Been dreaming of a set of them and these are such a great deal. Beautiful block to store them in, aswell! They are truely a beautiful knife to work with!
I saved hard to be able iceto buy these Global knives. And they are worth every cent. Global are the pinnacle of expert knives. And the price at Kitchenware Direct was amazing.
I absolutely love these knives however have had to give them 4.5 out of 5 because even though the handles are perfect for my small hands they don't suit my hubbies large hands quite so well. However, perfect in every other way!
Not only does this Global knife block set look awesome on the bench but the knives are just so light yet razor sharp.

great knives, beware they are razor sharp and took no effort at all to give myself a manicure at the same time as chopping!! oops. Not the most comfortable to hold for lots of chopping, but what knife is? Lightweight, quality. I feel undeniably smug and satisfied to own such great knives :)
I am not a great cook by any stretch of the imagination, but when I got this knife set I felt like a professional. They are AMAZING! Of course using great knives has a downside, I did nick myself a number of times early on. If you want to feel like a pro, this is where to start.
Stunning knifes.. testing and sliced my hand open with the gental of touches.. Works even better with food.. very impressed..effortless to cut meat..
These knives are the greatest, stay sharp forever and so easy to sharpen too. But recently my husband dropped on of the knives and it BROKE in half!!! Will now have to see how good the warranty is!
Love these knives... best i've had.
I have a cooking school and these are the only knives I use...the easiest to handle, they stay sharp for long and sharpening them with the ceramic water sharpener is a breeze.
Great knives, very good quality, very happy.
Had these knives for a few months and they are just amazing. Not the cheapest by any means but very lightweight, balanced and sharp! I would reccomend this product as a starter 'premium' set. For the real MasterChef's out there you'll need to buy some additional sized knives to get the most in the Kitchen.
