No kidding. I used to take my tool box with me everywhere. And yes, it was a guys tool box that I put all my toys in and put in the car whenever we set out to family or friends houses. Only brought out when asked though.

My Case XX 8-400 Chef Knife. Given in 1957 as a wedding present to my parents.
My old bamboo spatula is also on my list.
Third would be my nice silicon tongs.

i own 4, only like/use 1. it's bright & cheerful with pinks & blues & yellows. my old one is on wheels, then i got a leather 1, & then when i returned to school, they issued new ones in a rolly bag that was too bulky so i ditched it.

i take mine with me when i want to get a job to demo my knife skills.

I'm a knife nut, so my main toys are knives. But there are a few utensils I would hate to do without:

1. My large Calphalon nonstick pan. It's perfect for crepes & omelletes.
2. Chef Wizard. Yeah, that goofy set of tongs that's two flat whisks! It's great as a whisk for sauces and great for flipping fish & grabbing eggs from boiling water.
3. My Thermopen thermometer. I should've listed it #1! It rocks!
4. My Edge Pro Apex sharpening system.
5. My Hand America glass hone.
6. Mixing bowl with a spout & handle. I got it for $1 at Ace Hardware. Pretty flimsy but I just use it for pouring crepe batter into the pan.
7. Silicon spatulas/spoonulas. Those things are the best.

Those are the main ones I can think of offhand.
