    Your warning was not strong enough. I needed a bigger barf bag.

    "In mid- to top-range knives, one choice a cook makes is between Asian-style knives, which generally have thinner blades and are lighter, and heartier European-style knives, which make cutting chicken easier."
    Yup, I always reach for my wusthof when I'm cutting chicken.

    Might have been a different article had the author visited with Jon at JKI instead of the creator of the "Rhino Chop."

    What? You don't like the thumb ramp that provides a surer hold? And who needs a convex grind when you can drill a dozen holes directly through the blade? Come on guys, get on board.....

    Strange I never knew that Global's had ("The handle, which is covered with small divots, is filled with sand to give it balance and a substantial feel,” Pitblado says.) Is that true?

    Oh, shizzle. I posted some knives for sale on another forum and the only response that I got was THAT guy telling me how good they looked. No wonder they haven't sold yet!!!! I thought it was the economy and that I was asking for a lot of money.

    Yeah Global's handles are filled with sand to really provide that "perfect" balance. Its not like loose rattling around in there but yeah the handle is hollow and the filled with sand at the end to balance the knife.
