Let’s talk knives: Shun vs. Global vs. Henckels vs. JA Henckels International vs. Forschner

People often talk about pots and pans with me but never knives.  Maybe it’s a subject no body ever thinks of or it’s not interesting. But honestly it wasn’t until last year that I realized the importance of having a good sharp chef’s knife.  It’s definitely one of those things where you don’t know what you’re missing until you try it.  Just like riding first class on an international flight, dining at a 3 star Michelin restaurant, watching the sunset on a beach, the birth of your son/daughter, attending a U2 concert, well you get the idea.  It was simply night and day after I used a good knife.  Makes me wonder how many people do not have a nice sharp knife.  So everyone go get a good knife if you don’t have one and if you do make sure you keep it sharp.


Prior to my purchase I had an inexpensive J.A. Henckels International Everedge Plus knife set, cost $50 on sale.

My fiance has a 20cm G-2 Global cook’s knife (aka 8″ chef knife) and a Global santoku knife.

My friend Linda has a J.A. Henckels Twin Pro set which includes an 8″ chef’s knife.

I’ll focus mainly on the chef’s knife as this is the most important knife in the kitchen and thus if you are going to buy one knife make sure you at least get a good chef’s knife.

Why I love my Shun

1. It’s sharp

2. The handle fits my hand perfectly

3. It’s well balanced and light

4. It’s beautiful
