HWooldridge Posted June 30, 2006 Share Posted June 30, 2006 Not specifically BS content but close... I don't consider myself a master chef but I do cook a lot for family and friends so use kitchen knives regularly. When my wife and I were newly married 25 years ago, I bought a set of JA Henckels, which have lasted quite well in most sizes. Unfortunately, between a couple of tip breaks and repeated sharpening, the 6 inch chef's knife is about gone (now measures just under 4") so I went shopping tonight and the same blade is now $80 at Linens and Things, which is the closest thing we have to a cutlery store. Chicago Cutlery is cheaper but I have owned a couple of them and was totally unimpressed so am not interested unless they have gotten MUCH better... My question is: What do any of you who are serious cooks (or married to one) use for kitchen knives? I'll spend the money on a Henckels but I know a lot of the cost is for the name so would try something else on a recommendation. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
