From Global's site:

"Global Ni are the second in the new generation of Global Knives (Ni meaning 2). These knives have all you would expect of the Global range; razor sharp edges, Chromova18 stainless steel and Global's famous perfectly weighted hollow handles. What set the Global Ni apart are the improvements to the original series. Thicker blades with slightly longer handles and a spine that has been slightly rounded to provide control and comfort using a pinch grip.

Global Ni knives all feature an oriental styling, with a distinctive kink in the knife blade. The blades are sharpened to Global’s 15 degree angle, to provide an extremely sharp edge and go through an extra sharpening process in the factory. The Global Ni knives have a superior edge to the Global Classic series which added to the slightly heavier weight of these knives make these knives feel quite a bit more substantial than the Classic series.Global Ni handles retain Global’s famous dimples to provide grip and with a seamless join between the handle and blade retain Global’s distinctive look and design."

Hmm... already have the Global Chef's Knife 8", wonder if this style of knife is any better? Is it better for chopping vegetables? Or is it unnecessary if you already have the Chef's knife?

"The blades are sharpened to Global’s 15 degree angle"

Question for knife fanatics: What happens if I sharpen the knife, it won't be at 15 degrees anymore, right? I mean, given that I'm just using a stone to sharpen.

Thanks OP, I'm really happy with my Henckel's Pro, but have to start working out of town for a while and this will be handy to keep at my other place and not drag a chef's knife back and forth.

If you already have the 8" chef knife (G2), then this will be pretty redundant.
If you're looking for something for vegetables, Global has a smaller vegetable knife (GS-5) that will probably be a better addition to what you already have.

You'll be fine. Just watch lots of sharpening videos, and practice. Eventually you'll get a feel for the angle. The sound you make when sharpening should also give you an indication.

Thanks for clarifying... But if there is a vegetable knife, what is the main purpose of the chef's knife? Is there not overlap here? Or just a preference?
