Anyone have any good recommendations for a set of kitchen knives? Looking on eBay for some...
Boy, did I speak too soon. I put the same post on the "other" forum, on Facebook, and I texted my father. Obviously, I really want a new knife set. Dad responded, "A very nice knife set will appear here at home on March 16 next weekend."
My birthday. Isn't that sweet of my parents!?
And here I was gonna suggest "GINSU"
I would say get something without a point or sharp edge so they won't take them after they take all our guns away
Are you a chef? Knives are an odd request for a birthday gift and I have received many.
In training. Not very many Cajuns are natural born Chefs, so I kinda feel like the odd ball out!
Texans had a similar issue until 10-15 years ago. It was all the same stuff everywhere. Burgers, Fries, Steaks, but we've been seeing a resurgence. I tended to emphasize American Fare when I was cooking. I preferred to take traditional American recipes and refine them to a less rustic more restaurant family food. Many cultures foods are coming out of the home, Germans for instance, and it's been great to see how they adapt to a faster setting.
I have Chicago Cutlery. Lifetime warranty and sharpening.Only drawback is they are located in New York. DON'T BUY STAINLESS.. Does not hold an edge.
You're in Texas, too?
I got tired of using the department store quality knives years ago. My suggestion is go to a good cutlery store. I bought a set of Forschner Knives for DW 13 to 15 years ago at a local cutlery store. Great knives, high quality stainless, full tang, wood handles and I keep them razor sharp using the dual angle ceramic rod system.
I like hi carbon. It holds an edge, but it's a pia to sharpen, so I just stay on top of it with a steel.
I am, about 45 minutes south of Austin.
I like Wusthof if I'm spending good money on knives.
