Looking for a nice knife set...Any suggestions?
Id be cool with spending 250.00~350.00
you only really need a couple of good knives
This, and get a good cutting board.
I got a nice chopping block last weekend...
Smart. A good cutting surface is crucial when you have nice knives.
You're looking for knives to cook people?
what's the point of keeping the Chez Dawgs forum around?
We bought a JA Henckels set about 15 years ago and its been good.
We've got some open stock Wusthof knives that are pretty decent, too.
I have a decent set of Henckels but I only use the chefs knife and paring knife 99.9% of the time.
It's best if you get sharp ones.
Take this faggot ass shit to the faggot ass cooking forum, faggot.
There are some really great knives out there and it's more of a personal preference regarding the weight, handle, feel, etc. I suggest going to a few stores that sell high end knives, hold them in your hand, decide which is best for you, write down the names/serial numbers and then search for the best deal online. As mentioned earlier, you don't need an entire knife set/block.
I would look at the victorinox at Amazon. they're stamped and not forged, but I swear to god they stay so sharp for so long it's ridic. I only have to put them on a stone once a year of so, and then hone them before every use of course and they're always razor sharp. I don't even use my henckles anymore because they don't keep a fucking edge..
I wouldn't get a set in a block, I have an 8" chefs knife that I use 90% of the time, a 12" slicer, a 6" fillet, a paring knife and a magnet strip.. and the best part for example Is the chefs knife was think $30-$40
Me and the wifey are going tah go do some looking around tahmorrow...Ill definitely bring paper and pen.
Yea, chef's knife is a must.
Or take pics with your cell phone. Mine is full of sku tags/numbers
Solid advice, right here.
