We went back to the knife shop and started our collection of Global knives. They are made of molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and razor sharp (and I mean sharp!). On top of that, the knives are both ice-tempered and resistant to rust or staining. That silly (at first glance) dimpled handle is much more slip resistant than our more traditional knives. One of the advantages of the all in one piece construction is that there is no place for bacteria to hide in the handle or the space between the blade and handle as there is in the traditional construction. Now add a limited lifetime warranty and you have a set of knives which will last for many generations. You will want to hand wash these knives just as you do any other good cutlery. Again, be careful, they are very sharp. They maintain that edge through a lot of use and don't require frequent sharpening.
First of all, these are lightweight. When I first picked up the "Deba" blade, I was surprised and a little taken back. These were knives that the knife shop had displayed behind glass in a locked cabinet, so I was expecting a different feel. The shop owner laughed and said most people were surprised when they first handled a Global knife, but soon got spoiled and would not use anything else.
An in-drawer knife block is another option for storing knives in a drawer. Part drawer organizer and part knife block, drawer knife blocks are fitted with slots to hold knives of varying sizes and lie flat in a drawer. They provide protection and a way to store your knives out of site. The downsides are that they are not a very efficient use of drawer space and may not accommodate all of your knives. If you do not own a lot of knives and drawer space is not an issue, an in drawer knife block may be adequate.
