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.
On the other hand, if you want to use your kitchen knives with a little bit of elbow grease, you can. Should you desire them to be balanced and hefty, you can get the German kinds. Most European kitchen knives are all the more sturdier than their Eastern counterparts. There are lots of best quality knives out there that are fully forged. If you want sturdy kitchen knives you should stick to the forged lines which offer premium quality.
Knives used for softer foods do not necessarily need a full width and length tang. High carbon stainless steel is the top choice material for use in making cutlery knife blades. This top grade material keeps its color and is not damaged by acid foods like onions, lemons or tomatoes. Although it is much harder to craft a good cutting edge initially, it lasts much longer on a high carbon stainless steel blade. Materials that have less carbon content, like carbon steel and stainless steel, are also used for good kitchen knives. However, those knives do not last as well as those of high carbon stainless steel.
