Global Knife Set for Sale at Costco

Recommended Posts

Costco has a 6 piece set Of Global knives on sale for $349.99.

 

With all the Knife talk on here recently I figured I'd post this. I don't have these knives, so I know anything about them, but I know they are an upper end knife line. Maybe @keeperovdeflame can weight in with his thoughts on them and their quality. 

 

As a comparison Cutleryandmore.com has the same set for $599.99.

Nice and really good price. A lot of people like and have Global knives. 

 

Once again Costco is not an authorized dealer. Costco will warrant them but Global will not. Same way they do BGE's

Did you have a change to hold some? If so, how did they feel?

I have some globals, they're very functional, hold a great edge, and are a pleasure to use. That said, the handles are unique, and I find that I like a more traditional Japanese handle over the global handle.

That is why I was asking. Unique one piece knife but the handles may take some getting use too.

Those are the same knives that Giada De Laurentiis featured with close ups in her first show. That was the show where she cooked in what appeared to be an unused Le Creuset enameled pot on a lot of her episodes. I personally love the look. They are IMO a work of art.

I have used metal handled knives before and did not like them because they were slippery. How ever  mine did not have the dimples. Some on here have said that they like the metal handles. i have read that they are filled with sand to get just the prefect balance.

i own a few globals - i like the look and they are easy to keep clean (no hidden spots) - hold a great edge and easy to sharpen. I dont find them slippery to use and i think they perform well for a middle of the road mass produced knife.

      A certain knife dealer site had so good of prices on some nice knives in BD1N stainless that I couldn’t help myself. (It’s a sickness I tell ya!) Anyway, here’s some pics of my new tools.

       
      9” hollow edge craving knife and fork set.



      6” curved boning knife.



      I had a Big Poppa gift certificate I’d won in a throwdown that was burning a hole in my pocket so, I placed a couple of items I didn’t already have in my cart.



      Also added 2 rubs on sale that I thought I’d use a lot.



      I already used the carving knife for Christmas Eve dinner with my family and hope to use the other items real soon.

       
      Thanks for looking.

      Going to ask Santa for a few new knives for this year. I am looking for recommendations on a boning/fillet knife and a brisket/meat slicer. Considering Shun and Wusthof but am not dead set on either brand. I'd like something that holds an edge for a long time and relatively easy to maintain. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I just want to say hello, I am new to the Kamado world and just picked up my first ever Kamado today. I got a Kamado Joe Classic II, and I am super excited to use it! I was able to pick it up at a Costco Roadshow, which I've read tons about and knew that they offered the best deals on the KJ. I've attached a photo of the current roadshow prices if anyone is interested. This was the Costco Roadshow in Glen Mills, PA (about 40 minutes outside of Philly). It is running there until 07/22.
       
      Again I just wanted to say hello and that I am super excited to get into Kamado cooking and being on the forums for new cooking ideas!
       
      Matt

      Picked up a 6.75lb flat at Costco. Seasoned with salt pepper garlic onion powder, used mustard to help the rub adhere. Fired up at 7 this morning, settled in at 250 with some cherry on there, brisket went on at 830. Stalled HARD at 165 from 11-6, then zoomed to 195-200 by 7. Found a couple spare ribs at the store and tossed them on at the same time, they finished around 330. 
       
      Ribs came out great. Brisket came out pretty darn good. Rub was a bit too salty, I’ll have to scale that back. Some areas around the outside were a bit crumbly, and it could have been juicer, but I’ve paid for worse brisket at “bbq” restaurants. Needless to say, bark formation was on point (on flat?). 
       
      Dont remember where I saw it here, but I wrapped a sweet onion with foil, and put a couple pats of butter on it, left it in the grill for the last 6 hours, 10/10 would recommend, will do this every time I fire up from now on.
