Bought a set. Thanks everyone for your help.
Any recommendations for a knife sharpener to go with this?

Recommend a ceramic honing rod instead

The 8" chef's knife is definitely the G-2
The 5" chef's knife appears to be the GS-3
The bread knife looks like it's the G-9 (The Bay listing says its 8", whereas the Global USA website lists it as 8.5" - they don't have an 8" bread knife in the Classic line)
The 5.5" vegetable knife appears to be the GS-5
The 4.25" utility knife appears to be the GSF-22

I can't seem to match up/find the 3" paring knife on the Global USA website.
Just picked up the set. You are bang on. And the paring knife is the GSF-15.

How are these Global knives compared to Zwilling Four Star knives? I currently have those but debating picking these up?

I don't own either, but from doing some quick research online these are generally considered to be comparable knives albeit with different characteristics, with the Global knives being possibly slightly to moderately better overall. Unless you just don't like the Zwilling knives you own, I can't imagine that there is enough "upgrade" to justify buying an entire replacement set. The main differences are in the fact that the Global knives are a stamped steel with a thinner blade, so they are much lighter/nimbler and have a smaller handle versus the Zwilling which are forged steel and thicker/bulkier with a much bigger handle. The steel itself is of similar hardness in both, but the Global knives have more chromium (18% vs. 15%) which means that they should be more stain resistant. The other major difference is in the edge grind: the Global knives are ground to a straight-edge (which means that they should offer better edge retention) versus the Zwilling which are ground to a bevelled-edge (which results in a stronger, more durable edge).

So the edge and weight/handle are the main differences. The Zwilling are German construction which generally profile bulkiness, but again this is a personal preference thing as lots of people actually like a heavy/robust feeling knife. The Zwilling should be much better in terms of hacking through bones or other hard/dense materials due to the added weight and edge durability. I think that this is one area where the Global knives are supposed to lack, but a lot of people will tell you that you should just buy a meat cleaver for these types of tasks regardless, and that it doesn't make sense to risk the blade on a high-end knife on tasks like hacking through bones.

The last Spend More, Save More Event offering $100 off ended on Monday, Sept 6th. I don't know why the OP didn't expire this thread.
