Not a fan of stainless steel knives.  Good carbon steel knives are sharper and retain their edge much better than stainless.

Raphael says:

These knives can’t hold an edge, who cares if its really sharp out of the box.

Louie Macorncan says:

ahh the knife you got there is extreamly the finest knives among all knives. Fact is it was made tradtional probably or used the best whetstone or knives sharpener stone the top quailty. I am blade person myself, and knives, daggers are one them. Every tool of weapon is being muiltiple tool you can used it for even cooking.

rockerseven says:

That was the most satisfying tomato cut I have ever watched…

Boomer Taylor says:

These look interesting and in my wheelhouse of design taste. It may be something that could interrupt my life-long love affair with Forschner… I’ve had many knives and keep coming back there (I have a collection of the older style, with the better blade, though the new ones don’t duck for the price) as the best for my money, handling style and taste. I have a 60s, now “collectable,” like-new set of their steak knives, which are unsurpassed for my needs and taste, that I’ll never get rid of. When I’m gone my kids will get them. lol
I’ve never been a “snob” who sees more $ instantly as a better knife. And I know there are more expensive, “better” knives than Forschner, I don’t need the lecture, but not for MY money.

my dad is an shef and he is beter than you

mwillblade says:

Go to a local Asian store, go to the area where they sell knives for the kitchen. Find and buy $5 kitchen knife from Thailand. You can thank me later.

Boomer Taylor says:

Oh, and that’s every Forchner from a paring knife to a 14″ cimitar and everything in between. Sometimes, old school isn’t so bad. I love my 8″, serrated “sandwich” knife. Too bad they don’t make ’email anymore. Everything from lettuce to a double deck hoagie doesn’t stand a chance. LOL. I’m sure these are great knives. I’m sure curiosity will get the best of me and I’ll have one by Christmas. haha

Pumpkin LordGaming says:

nice I’ll use it

Big Papi says:

Thanks Chef. I’m going to check these out. I need to replace my go to chef’s knife. Thanks also for using excellent and safe knife technique. I’ve seen too many knife videos with over the top, unsafe slashing and chopping with fingers extended, etc.

hilarious~~and helpful also~~me thinks i’ll check this brand for pricing~~thx for the post!!

Majick0003 says:

like ok maybe it is my computer.  but clicking on the comment section reloads the video.  So anyway this video sounds far too much like a sales pitch.  As A professional meat cutter I don’t give 2 F*ucks how pretty a knife is.  the only question is how long will the steel hold up.  I buy Victorinox 6 inch boning knives for about 18 us and they last about 9 months. I do everything with them.  bone out, cut beef and pork.  some times even break down a chicken.  you can only steel a knife so many times before you have to hit it on a stone and that takes steel from the knife.  this is using a knife almost 8 hours a day and most weeks 6 to 7 days.  so I am not calling anybody out on how the knife preforms on this video how long will it last… I am sure it cost more than 18 dollars US.  but I am not a chef.  I cut through a lot harder stuff than a tomato or fish.

All World Misanthrope says:

…….Being a CCC myself, I find the title a little misleading…( unless you’re getting paid to say that)….anyone who ever worked in a kitchen knows that there is not one knife that would work in all situations…depending on what and where you’re working in the kitchen dictates the knife used, you wouldn’t work a carving station with the same knife used for just mise en-up for a sauté line station….Global was really one of the first Far East companies to break-into US fine dining restaurant kitchens more than 25 years ago and I still use the first Global I bought because of the difference in the edge bevels compared to the European knife “stepped” bevel (angle)…….but in the end it’s really a personal choice based on your own preference and it’s just one persons opinion…

Who’s watching in 2017

Michael McCullough says:

I just got into cooking few months back and looking for a good knife, right now I use a chef knife in a $40 set lol.
Anyways looking to get a great knife and decided on this one, but am not good at using the sharpen stick, always feel I might be damaging the knife. Before I spend a $120 on Amazon for this, just wanted to get feed back on sharpening it.

Potato Shake says:

How much is that ?

Adam Smith says:

Umm I can do all that with my victorinox at way less cost. Granted I spent a little bit of time resetting the blade angle and polishing the knife but I can chop slice and dice all day and still shave with it. By the way a heavier knife is not desirable. It’s just more tiring on the hand when you have to use it for hours on end. I’m actually just now going to touch up my victorinox after three days of it being the go to knife on the line in the kitchen I work at for 3 days. 3 days of hard work just now needs a little touch. I’ll hit it with my 1k shapton Stone just a bit and work my way to 8k. Probably a 7 minute job? Maybe less

InformationIsTheEdge says:

$120. Why couldn’t you say it? Piss off!

Life with ADHD says:

Is that damascus or is it just

Jordan Hesterberg says:

Cutco kills this

Ike says:

Looks good but I am a Shun guy.



Yep. Just Eric says:

How do they explain 67 layers? By powers of two, I could see 64 layers ~ 2^5.

vegasrenie says:

Thanks for the review, Chef. This is one that I’ve been thinking about purchasing, and it’s wonderful to see it in action.

Bon Jovi says:

You sure it’s not 64 layers? If not I’d love to know how the got 67… Think about it. Unless they used separate layers (which, why?) there would always have to be an even number of layers…

Silverstone L says:

Bullshit! Maybe it has the keenest blade, but THE BEST knife is the one I can use most comfortably and effectively, and NO ONE can tell you that….you have to find it out for yourself!

Kyle Lucas says:

VG-10? Nice try.

TheLazyPinecone says:

are they better than Cutco knives?

Brendan Gochenour says:

one of my cooks has a set of these, for the money there crap.
