For home use I gotta say I love my Wusthof set going on its 14th year. My goto knife is the 8" santoku. These do not go to comps. For that we bought Sam's B&C's knives and have been very happy - rigid and very sharp and if one goes bye bye cheap enough not to be missed. If you buy a 12" slicing knife for brisket or roasts, etc spend the extra money on a graton edge. 3 to 4 times the price than smooth but worth every penny.

I agree about the "Mundials". The "Quality/Price" ratio" is way beyond anything else on the market, IMO.

We have a set of Henckles Four-Star Friodur and they are great for my standard work. If I'm looking to do some serious stuff, I have a mint set of high carbon, old style Chicago Cutlery. These are not anything like what is sold today under that brand name. I got them when they were already 20 years old, still in the original wrapper. I use them rarely because of their age and the care that carbon steel requires. They are very sturdy and balance well in the hand.

You got ripped-off.

Local Sam's Club has a 6 pack of W.Puck knives for about $20.

Regarding the original question: I don't like to drag my expensive knives out of the kitchen. Luckily, there's a local knife shop that will sharpen knives. I also have a cheap electric that works fine.

I'm not a comp guy but I've had a set of Wuesthof Classic knives for 4.5 years and they are great - but they are expensive. I will be adding a 12" Forschner Granton edge soon.

If my pockets were lined with gold it'd be all Japanese knives

Most of the knives I've bought are Mundials or Forschners. They can't be beat for the price/quality ratio. I've been given a few Global and Wuesthof knives as presents, they're excellent knives, but for myself I don't see any clear benefit to justify the extra expense.

Make sure you physically handle whichever knives you choose to buy. Different people prefer a different balance in a knife, and if you're going to be spending a lot on knives make sure you like the feel of the ones you choose.

Very happy with the Forschners I've purchased from Ambrosi Bros. in Kansas City.

Their site is being revamped but I'm sure you can call and place your order. Ask for the Comp BBQ edge they do. It's worth it.

I like Dexter Russel, good solid knives and good price. I love my 14" Forschner scimitar for slicing brisket.

I've got a Pampered Chef chef's knife that the wife bought about 10 years ago and I still use it all the time. I recently bought a couple of boning knives from Sam's that work great for trimming/cutting meat and poultry. Kitchen shears for the tough work.

I got a entire knife set from the in-laws for Christmas. Literally says "As seen on TV" on the box. Cheapo's for sure, but the set comes with a decent cleaver that I've used a few times.

I won't spend a lot of money on knives.......then again, I'm a MAJOR cheap arse!
Plus....I don't compete or cater either.



You know what......don't listen to me.
