I know it's only a matter of time before I drop it ...

But now maybe I'll lock them up during parties!

I've been a loyal Henckles user for 8 years, or since when I was in culinary school. I've used the same Professional-S series this whole time. Recently however, I purchased some Henckles Twin-Select blades and I'm now considering switching my entire set to this series.

I would love a knife that would stay as sharp as my vegetable peeler.
It is one with the stainless steel handle. (u shped thingy)
It is just as sharp now as it was 30 years ago.

I also have a $9.95 7" Wustoff look alike from Linen's and Things.
Like Sushi... when it gets dull... out it goes!

Enjoy,
Charlie

I love my Global chef knife. I have a Henkle pro S set which I love, but for chopping, the global is great because it is SO light and very well balanced. The henkles are great for heavy cutting because of the thick blade. My first knives were Forschner, or Victronox now. I would suggest these to anyone who wants a quality knife for a low price. I still use the Forschner sometimes. It has the most comfortable handle of them all IMO.

I'm with linda when it comes to buying a slew of inexpensive paring knives. I like to have a few around the house that I won't feel guilty about using to open a package!!! I just bought a bunch from W-S. I just don't like feeling that I'm committing a sacrilage when I need one, so keep inexpensive ones around. I use paring knives for a multitude of tasks. So the Wustof one stays in the block, and the cheap ones get used all the time!

The only knives I have which I would call "quality" are my 2 Wustof Classic (6" Chef and 5" boning). I use the Chef for most everything. I only wish I could convince my DW that a couple more (I'd like a 10" chef) would be perfect. She hates them because I won't let her put them in the dishwasher like she does with her Cutco set. One day I will slip that 10" chef into the kitchen somehow.....

I have 2 favorite knives my Wusthopf Santoku(SP) and a henckel's paring knife. My hubby Jimmy has his own set of Henckel's 4 star that he loves -actually it's his pairing knife that I use.He "accidently" threw mine away but, if he tells the story it was my son Dennis' fault!!!
