GU-02 8" Asian Chef's Knife

Chunky version of my longtime favorite: the G-2. Not bad, but not better than the G-2.

This beefy boi looked pretty promising: it's a heavier, slightly more Western-profiled G-2. Seems like a good way for Global to expand its audience into Zwilling, et al's territory.

It's ultimately just a compromise that isn't adding anything, though.

    Smash
  • Probably a less polarizing handle than the G-2.
    Pass
  • Heavy.
  • Thick.
  • Not as nice as the G-2.
