Aside from that, like Markopas said, all knives need to be sharpened. If you don't want to sharpen them often then preventative measures are important. I.e. hand wash, never leave sitting in sink (damages the blade and it's dangerous) and wipe dry immediately after washing.
Great tip which I failed to mention - when you are done with your blade, wash it thoroughly right away and dry it and put it back in the knife block.

Very proud of myself for giving back to the thread :)

The Global knives are awesome. I bought these 5 years ago from the William Ashley warehouse sale and the chef knife on its own costs more than the set
Costco.ca has a 3 piece global set as well for the same price...

Includes:
Classic 17.8 cm (7 in.) santoku knife
Classic 12.7 cm (5 in.) cook’s knife
Classic 8.9 cm (3.5 in.) paring knife

Models: G46, GS3, GS38

Anyone know the difference to the one in the warehouse?

Japanese knives require a more lower degree and angle for sharpening, luckily there are self sharpening gadgets that can make your life a little less painful - I personally have the proper blocks for sharpening and even got a strapping block to give it an even more sharper edge but time is always a factor for people and keep going back to my trusted minoSharp 3 part sharpener which I will list below.

The MinoSharp 3 ceramic blade sharpener is the one I use, you only use blue wheel for really rough knives or to help with inclusions or damages, normally you fill the unit with water, and then run 10 passes on the orange wheel and then check your blade and if you are satisfied, you move to the white wheel and run 10 passes, clean the blade under hot soapy water and dry it off and you are done.

This sharpener is good for ANY japanese knife, do not use it for any other european style blade.

I use the Miyabi pull sharpner for both Global and miyabi knives which is basically the same concept with a Diamond and a Ceramic wheel. But it doest not mention filling with water? Would that be helpful by regulating the friction a bit?

I think if you have to pick between the two, the one in picture is better value/use. The one on .ca is very limited use, only the Santoku is very useful (I have it and is wonderful wonderful knife). The other two are too small for any kind of daily use.

The one in weahouse seems to be a decent sized chef knife and another general purpose knife. The small one is basically a bonus and will be little used.

I can't speak on behalf of the MIyabi wheel sharpener, you might want to look at the instructions but the MinoSharp (Global) definitely suggests filling it with water as per instructions, the wheels sit deeper into the unit so that the wheels spin in the water. Based on the Miyabi, they are basically flush with the base and just designed that way.
