He sure will. And his shit knives that Craster said would be blunt in no time are still going as well as the day they were purchased :)

My only regret was not ordering a more complete set. May have to do that soon, as the cleaver would help with removiing chicken legs :)

Global Knives are the way to go. Very expensive though, I got lucky and bought a set of 6 with holder for £180 in Costco some years ago.

As with all things if you spend all day cutting meat or have more money than you know what to do with there are better and more expensive knifes, but for a good life long set for day to day use you can’t beat global.

Beware of cheap sets on EBay they are mostly inferior copies

Same with everything these days >:(

Anything desirable or worth having is cloned. I bought a set of Beats By Dre and they broke. I found out they were fakes, paypal reversed the transaction. Then I bought a set of fakes as I liked the sound haha. To replace the "good headphones" set I bought a set of Bose, only to find out they are also cloned to shit. Thankfully after phoning Bose it turns out mine were genuine but yeah, bloody frightening these days !

Some clones are ok, I bought 2 WII controllers from Hong Kong on Ebay.

They were half the UK price so I got them in black so I could always tell them from the 2 white genuine ones.

They have been fine and are just as good as the genuine ones.

Yeah, I got a reversing camera and screen for the Tomcat from China for about £40.
My theory is that stuff like this well either work just fine or fail in the first five minutes (or just not work at all).

Yeah global are sharp and all,but I really don't like the handles on them. That's the most important thing, how it feels when you use it. If you're spending upwards of 50quid a knife then its going to be good,that MAC one I have was around 60quid and the zwilling was about 80.

And I haven't been on around enough to realise JC was actually back

Also those little victorinox peeling knives are really good, we use them at work, and for £2 once they are blunt, which actually takes a while, especially with the amount of use they get, they are very cheap to replace.

It's not so much that they're copies, it's that Global have done exactly what Sabatier did - licensed their name to anyone willing to pay for it. That means that they are no longer any guarantee of quality - there are superb global knives, and there are awful global knives, depending on who's actually making them. Best advice is to learn what the steel grading measurements mean - that'll tell you the quality of the blade.

Happy to hold my hands up and say I was wrong, there!

We should be alright stowing chef knives in the hold, shouldn't we? Can't find any particulars for Air France or certainty beyond 'no flick knives'.

Seen some doozies, really fancy a couple of Japanese-style cleavers.

When in doubt, call your carrier and ask directly. The rules are complicated and vary between carriers and depending on which countries you're flying between.

I think you'll be fine.

You're almost always fine with knives in checked luggage. Best to check though.

One cleaver-ish veg and one meat knife got. Including training on how to clean, store and sharpen them. We weighed up the different blade lengths to make sure we got the right balance and everything.

Nearly crumbled in the face of Zwilling knives, but held out for local family-business ones instead.

Oh yeah, knives being modelled by Helen (and other swag too, not including my yukata). Yes, those are pots of spicy powder.
