I love My Chroma-FA Porche designed 10-inch Chef's knife. I have use many knives, some heavy, some light, some super sturdy. But for ease of use, ballance, and hand fit (at least for my hands) this is the finest knife I have ever used. I have literally used this tool daily since Christmas Day, on a maple butcher-block, and have only had to pass it across a steel to keep it razor sharp. It's the most used tool in my home, and my most impressive one. :D

My Henckles are resting nicely on the magnet strip because the one knife I keep going back to is the 12" chef's knife I found 20 years ago under the sink of my apartment. I cleaned it up and had it sharpened and its always ready for me.

The brand name is Ontario Knife Company.
I did a google search and found the manufacturer and I believe its a really old model of their current line.

My nick name is from that - I am often called in to finish some cutting job. Refusing to work with someone else's toy, I yell "Get me the big knife. Plus, its a great line from Moonstruck.

I like knives that I dont have to sharpen. That are somewhat inexpensive and after a year or 2... dont mind tossing in the garbage.

I practically worship the four Wusthof Culinar knives my husband gave me for my birthday. And a dear friend gave me one of her mother's very old chinese cleavers a few years ago -- the thing weighs a short ton and stays deadly sharp...and slices so thinly you can read through whatever you've sliced. Yep. Really love that one!

Global knives

Global knives are the best for the ease of holding if you need a lighter knife, due to older hands. Okay, arthritis -- it's a problem sometimes, well, most of the time; the sharpness and balance of the Global is really great.

Can't vote because I don't have any listed, and I hate the ones I have. Some set from JC Penney or something like that. Wood handles, which I hate because once they get wet, they look like crap.Glad to hear some good words about the Miracle Blade. A friend of mine and his wife have them, and speak highly of them. Likely to invest in a set with the storage block and free extra 4 knives. Frankly, I think the set should come with all 8 steak knives, but Chef Tony has got to make money somehow . . . . . . The Miracle Blade is the next set of knives I will own. If they are as good as I've heard, my vote will be "other" to cover for them!
