Global knives - How bad is blister problem?

Empgamer | May 25, 2007 09:53 PM

I am looking for some new knives at the moment and, while I've looked at Shun and some new Tojiro Senkou (which seem like the DP knives with Micarta handles and very expensive for what they are) I keep coming back to Global and Wushof Classic.

I like the Globals in terms of their lifetime guarantee, their reputation, the fact that they do a MASSIVE range and their looks. I am however concerned about an apparent problem they seem to have in causing blisters with prolonged use and whether the handles will be a pain when wet etc.

How bad is this blister problem and where do they tend to occur? The knives will be getting a lot of use and while I'm able to test the knives to see how they feel before buying I will not be able to test the long term heavy usage that may cause this blistering.
