All the kitchen knives uses cheap steel but sell at expensive prices.

And they had high hardness with razor sharp blade which easily causes chipping.

I also bought a chef knife for around 30usd in kifecenter for the occasional usage.

buy what you like, honestly. I don't like global because of the price vs steel. And I dislike all steel/one-piece knives. But lots of people like the design of global - it is different from the usual pinned handle of western kitchen knives or the wa (traditional) handle of Japanese knives.

For cutting fruit, you need a thin blade.

Let us know what you get in the end.

impossible. Unless they heat treat hardness below 55hrc. Which will make blades dull faster.

Its either hardness or none chipping. there is no best of both world... unless u are talking about CPM 3V which is not fully stainless.

These two brand doesn't make Excalibur. so no magical sword for u.

If you're cutting fruit, you could really consider getting either the KAI I mentioned (it's the same steel that Global uses - I just checked) or a Tojiro (you can get it from Razor edge shop). if you want something nicer, then you may end up paying for the design over the steel (likely and nothing wrong with that). Global's pricing is due to the uniqueness of the dimpled handles that are integral to the blade.

Either way, you win

Hi,

I received a letter from Singpost asking me to go down and check/pay gst for the parcel at paya lebar for a knife. This is the first time in 2 years since I started buying knife from overseas and having them shipped to SG.

Just checking if anyone kena this before, and anything I should prepare or take note of.

I am sure there is no gst charges as the total value of the package is below $400. Also, the knife is a manual flipper so there should not be any regulation issue.

Thanks in advance.

Very normal.

To go down paya lebar to verify identity for blades is common. All blades legal or not, has to go though there.
