Global knives breaking/snapping issues?

ScottU | Mar 2, 2009 02:05 PM

Hi! I'm in the market to upgrade a few new knives (getting married and registering, looking for a chef's, paring, and probably utility and a sashimi). I went to store and tried a few and I really like the light feel of the Globals and the all-steel construction, but I've read from a few posts that some people have had the blade snap off at the handle and that has me a little scared... even though I always take good care of my knives (never dishwash them or anything).

So I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or do these people just not know how to take care of knives? I have to admit I was thinking about getting a magnetic rack since I like the idea of my knives being right in front of me, but I've heard this can weaken the knife from repeatedly pulling it off.

Thanks for your input!
