Brooke was in the kitchen cooking up lentil soup and homemade humus. David was grilling steak and veggies. Both commented that they enjoyed using the knives that were in my collection.
Global makes a great utility knife that will last for years and make the cuts that you want with your fresh fruits and veggies. They handle great, chop with ease, and are on the lower end of the high-priced knives. Try one and I think you will love them. I do and have had them for years.
