    Genuine or fake Globals?

    Hello all I was wondering if you could help me please?

    I've finally settled on getting myself a set of Global's and have found these:
    http://www.pluckpoint.com/global-g-5...pc-set/product

    Is there anything blatently obvious that these might be fakes? Or is it as the website says a bargain price?

    Many thanks,

    Ben

    The price seems to be in the right ball park. They're great knives.

    I want to say fakes, the knife block has too much detail on it, from what Ive found so far, knife blocks are simple with no designs on them.

    seems it's a limited edition deal.

    I think it's alright.. but who am I LOL I'd just make sure you've held them before cause they might get a good rap by some but I hate the design. But then again I am a D handle lover who's yet to be converted.

    Thanks for the help. I saw them on potsandpans as a limited edition set and thought they should be alright but wanted a second opinion. Closest thing I've come to handling them is the packaging which I dare say is not a true reflection!

    I know people dislike them but I do have smaller hands than the average man

    its hard to tell by pictures. but real globals always have the copyright sign on the loggos and the black dots on the handle should be well made and not painted on sloppy/uneven.

    I typically recommend against buying sets. I also recommend against buying global knives. That being said, this looks like a good deal on a closeout item. It may just be discontinued and they are making shelf space. The knives included within this set are not discontinued however. All in all it looks like a great bargain on something that I wouldn't normally recommend. If that helps you out at all.
