I was always biased toward a couple of the top German knife brands, but I kept seeing this one used by Giada DeLaurentiis on her cooking show. It intrigued me, so thought I would give it a try. I just love it! It is the knife I grab for the most now. It fits in my hand so nicely and has the most comfortable grip. The only thing that worries me is how I am going to sharpen it. I have an electric sharpener for all my other knives, but you cannot sharpen the Global blades with it.

This must be a pretty good product with all the great 5-star reviews it has. However, it did not work well for me. It did not chop the garlic nicely for me and ended up pretty messy. It is much easier to just use my wonderful Wusthoff knife and chop the garlic by hand, which gives perfect results.

This is a fine grater, which I would recommend to others. It works beautifully and does not rust. I like that it has a cover so that you do not accidentally cut yourself when reaching for it. It washes quite well in the dishwasher.
