Read the guide by bruce almighty and agree, just thought i'd mention my wife got me a G-2 Cooks knife from House of Frazer for £60 100% genuine. I have three knifes now, two from ebay which i'm sure are genuine. All knives have got a small copyright symbol above the "L" in the word Global which is etched on only one side of the blade. All are very sharp and perfectly balanced. All packaging on single knifves is either black or grey box, with clear cable tie round center of knife, black leaflet behind blade and plastic sleeve on blade only. look carefully!!!
