    We just remodeled our kitchen and wifey talked me into storing the knives in a drawer holder. We've always had them on a bar so I was seriously skeptical, but surprisingly to me I like it.

    Fyi Benchmade just re-released their "table knives.". Assuming they're the same as my old set, they're very nice.

    There's actually a lot of truth to that. However, here's a funny anecdote about that. Wife was a server at a really nice restaurant up until recently. ICE apparently did a "raid" on them and they got busted because yeah, like half the kitchen was illegal. BUT, there was a happy ending. They didn't deport anyone, the whole debacle forced the (very rich) owner to haul ass to sponsor all their work visas, got some hot shot immigration lawyers involved, and boom. All magically squared away somehow. Dude realized he would be SCREWED if he lost half his kitchen like that, so it at least lit a fire under his ass to help his staff out like that. Everyone got to stay thankfully. Good crew. Badass cooks. Downright hilarious and totally un-PC back there.

    But bought a $7 Winco KC-101 to see if I'll really use the design.

    Global was popular in England when I got married. I lost about 1/3 of the knives in the divorce. I’d still like to add a heavy Euro-style chef knife and a carving fork. And a cleaver. My OCD wants them all to match, but I’m not paying what Global wants for their cleaver.

    We have a Cutco serrated utility knife that I think my mom found at a garage sale. It lives in the utensil caddy in the drying rack, and it’s my fiancé’s go-to knife.

    Anthony Bourdain said something like " its really hot, heavily tatted latino's are listening to spanish rap cranked to 11 and working their butt's off, the average kitchen wannabe couldn't cut it " ( knife pun intended )

    I pictured the guy cooking a really nice meal in an expensive restaurant as someone different

    actualy what happened is she left 1/6th of her knives, its all in how you spin it and remember if the average married dude is telling you how much he owns, he only owns half of it ... barring a great pre-nup

    Didn’t read any of the thread. But used to be a chef and always liked the wusthof pro chef knives. Easy to keep sharp and cheap. Still have 2 and use them way more than the Henkels I own. Also restaurant chefs don’t use the fancy pants knives, maybe some sushi chefs. But in general there’s way too much going on in a kitchen to worry about keeping fancy expensive knives in good condition. Restaurant chefs burn through gear (knives, pans, pots) like skiers burn through skis in low tide conditions. Fancy knives are for showing off $.

    Sharpening service? Are they going to have some other dude fuck their wives, too?

    We always sharpened our own knives.

    TR on any of their knives? Curious if they're good tools or just pretty jewels? Thanks

    ^No. I have only emailed them a couple of times with quality responses. The paring knives with the Mexican Blanket handle are what I am looking at for a few gifts. Reviews I have seen are good, and Nitro V is plenty for the recipients of these knives. I do know the makers of the micarta for the handle make an excellent product (GL hansen).

    It's this one.

    I'm pretty impressed with the quality for that price point. I still have to remind the wife that it needs to be cleaned and dried immediately. I bought it with the intention of using it as a vegetable cleaver, but I still find myself wanting something that isn't as tall.

    Mine's way less fancy, or maybe the same thing???? Acquired at an Asian restaurant supply place for something around $20. I don't use it much, but it's nice to have around sometimes.

    Restaurant supply stores are a good place to get decent quality no name stuff at a good price.
