While I like global's I know many people who prefer the weight of a Wustoff.
You should really go to Williams and Sonoma and check for yourself.

depending on your knife skills, weight and handle are very important. Many people assume the best knives for them are what the pros use, however if you are not trained you could seriously hurt yourself with the wrong knives.
I have Wustoff's and love them...and yes its a weight thing..."If you want to have a good time, you need to have a good watch"

some good info in this thread, i don't really have too much to add except:
1 - seriously re-consider buying the whole block of knives - most people only use 2-3 knives 99% of the time. a pairing and chef's knife are all that i ever use (although one could also make a case for a meat cleaver and/or bread knife.)
2 - you have to buy something that feels comfortable in your hand
3 - you have to buy something that you can maintain. you can buy a $10k samurai sword that will cut better than a laser but you will be spending 5 hours sharpening it for every 5 minutes you use it. there's generally a trade-off between performance and maintenance.
i use Global and i like it but i suck at keeping it sharp

I've always been a Shun/KAI man myself, but have never used the Globals. I'll have to try them out on your recommendations.
BTW: 1) Make sure a pro sharpens your nice knives. 2) Japanese steel has a different angle blade and is only angled on one side.Le Maison

to be honest. first impression these knives are awesome. Razor Sharp out of box. The straight handle chef's knife and santoku knives i am very comfortable with. The angled handles i am not use to. The reason is i manage my family owned chinese/hong kong restaurant and i sometimes cook in the kitchen. and this is what they use...
This set i purchased is for my own personal home use. im sure given some time with them ill become more comfortable. But Global is the way to go for sure. Very well balanced.
