When we looked at the sets, they came with knives we probably wouldn't use. For now we just got the block and are using our old knives. We just got a Syderco Sharpmaker and are practicing sharpening.

BTW: In your earlier post you mentioned you liked the Cordon Bleu line. Amazon.com has a few of them if you still want some.


My first "Real Knife" was a Wusthof 8" Classic with white handles and granton edge - My dear mrs. trooper ordered it for me! Great knife!

The Cordon Bleu knife I used at the place I work because of the extremely fine detail (of everything) - I since have changed to a 9.5" UX-10, but still keep the Cordon Bleu as a backup for now. (Horrible and Tragic things happen to equipment in commercial kitchen.)
