Shun or Global knives? Which brand do you like?

Chemicalkinetics | Mar 1, 2011 06:43 PM

I haven’t started a fun thread for awhile. We have a few threads about comparing German knives to Japanese knives, but Iet's try something in a narrower scope. The title said it: Shun knives vs Global knives. I am mostly referring the Shun Classic knives versus the Global G series knives.

Which one do you like better? Please provides one or two reasons if you can.

We know some potential advantages of Shun knives are:
Harder steel, fewer breakage reports, free hand sharpening service…
While Global knives have:
Slightly convex ground for edge holding, thinner blade, unusual yet stylish design…

Be respectful and have fun at it.
