I have a lot of different knives. Some for ME and some for everyone else.
The knives I have that are of the japanese variety are Tojiro and I am VERY happy with them. Are there other much more expensive knives that I lust after? Of course there are, but I have found that the Tojiros come pretty close to the limits of diminishing returns when it comes to japanese blades. There are better but the price ramps up at such a steep rate I can't justify it.
If I still lived alone I'd have a nice set of high carbon steel knives. But lets just say I go without to avoid that argument. Hehe
