Global knives and a magnetic holder, a good pair

Registering for gifts was actually a blessing for Jared and I because we literally had nothing before we got married. We both had our fair share of Goodwill finds and college-rusted utensils, and I was sick of it! It was finally time to upgrade so we gave our used things back to Goodwill and registered for anything and everything. When we moved into our new home, our kitchen was set with new and shiny things we received from our friends and family. All the other rooms were empty, but the kitchen was packed! Haha.

Not gonna lie, there was one item we didn’t use right away just because I didn’t want to ruin them—my Global 3-piece knife set. Besides the stainless steel pots & pans and Kitchen Aid mixer, these knives were the third most expensive item on the list. Man, oh man, they are sharp as hell and feels so naturally in the hand. I will never go back to my non-name brand knife. Look at these beauties…

Before I opened the knives, I needed a place to put them. From Bed, Bath and Beyond, we purchased the magnetic knife holder for a mere $16.99. It measures a foot long and attaching it to the wall was simple. The holder comes with two screws that you drill into the pre-drilled holes on both sides of the holder. Pretty sturdy. So far so good. The Global 3-piece knife set was little more pricey at $229, which includes a 5 1/2″ carving, 8″ chef and 3″ paring knives.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering why I registered for these knives. For no good reason at all, I saw chefs on TV cooking with them. Now I know why :)

As you can see, I have several other knives on the magnetic holder. It’s a great tool for those lacking cabinet space, which we do. And that’s the main reason why I waited so long to use these knives. I didn’t want to dump them in a cabinet with all my other kitchen gadgets. I needed a designated spot for the knives and for less than $20, I’d say this holder makes complete sense. So, if you’re looking to invest in a fantastic set of knives and a holder, I totally recommend these two items.

      That’s a pretty sweet birthday present! I use it all the time too! I make sure I wash the knives by hand and put it away clean and dry to not ruin them. Enjoy the knives, I know I have! Thanks for your comment, and I love your design blog!!
