Global vs. Shun?

timoftheshire | Nov 26, 2011 01:05 AM

While I'm aware there is already a thread about this in general, I'm looking specifically at the Shun Premier 7-inch Santoku and the Global G48 7-inch Santoku. Price is somewhat a consideration as I can get the Global for $80 plus tax, whereas the Shun is probably going to be about $140.

Factors include performance (obvs), durability of edge, and ease of sharpening.

I'm a home cook on a bit of a budget and this would be my Christmas present to myself. This knife will definitely be babied.

EDIT: or would you consider the Victorinox Fibrox Santoku a better option, given a price roughly half that of the Global?
