I've decided to go this route too. I keep really wanting to jump on these but hopefully a big knife and serrated combo will come out, or big knife & scissors again - with sharpening stone would be amazing...LOL!

Upvoted because I appreciate RFDers posting the Global deals for me to drool over.

cheers,
:)

Question for the knife aficionados out there - how important is it to not put something like this in the dishwasher? I noticed on reviews it will say hand wash only, but sometimes I really enjoy the convenience of just putting everything in the dishwasher. Does it really make a difference? Is it just about preventing a the knife from banging against other metals?

while putting your knife in the dishwasher probably won't ruin the edge (assuming it doesn't bang against other things). Other parts of the knife might suffer, like wood handles. Or more cosmetic changes if it's not good stainless steel, there might be discoloration. Worse is if you have a high carbon steel knife, your blade might end up rusting if you don't remove and dry out immediately.

That said if you don't care, then just use it, nothing can stop you from doing it...

I think this is the same set I saw at the Etobicoke store.

How are these knives different from the ones in the 7 piece set:

chef’s knife: G77 vs G2 ( g77 is fluted)
chef’s knife: GS89 vs GS3
paring knife: GS38 vs GSF15

are they redundant or do they complement the 7 piece set

Hey Guys.. i saw the same set at HOMESENSE heartland location for $79..

There are other Global Knives too.
I don’t have a Pic, but if you’re in the area and need it, check it out.

Also how different is the edge on the Global NI one that was posted last week? I got it and I’m thinking of returning it
