My favorite looks like a Wusthof but it's made by Farberware.
It's only about 6 inches long but that's fine cause I have very
small hands.

Gotta give 2 brands since they're 2 different types of knives.

I love Kyocera's ceramic knives.

In terms of traditional knives, I use Mac knives.

I have tons of knives from miricle blades to henkels but the one knife that i love and cannot live without is a $20.00 OXO PRO serrated tomato knife.It does so many things for me .I have 4 or 5 of them. Whenever i have a coupon to a bed bath and beyond I will pick one up. I slice tomatos fruit bread its a great fit, does not slip from hand and i can slice pretty thin slices.So more money on a knife does not always mean its the best knife for someones use.

My knife gloria, which is under my pillow. Just kidding. I was just thinking of this show I saw where this woman had a "favorite knife" and she ended up killing her husband with it. Sorry that was OT.

Dont buy FURi knives, heap of crap, sorry guys. Had a set for about 4 years and just threw them away. No real 'strength' in the blade and doesn't hold its edge past the second chop.

For fine cutting and fish the KAI range of shun and pro are fantastic.

I only own one quality knife, a Global Santoku -- love it. Sucker is super sharp and requires little maintenance.

I've been cooking with Wusthof knives for my whole career, and have no desire to use anything else. I also learned early on that because I was tall, the 10-inch knife would suit me better for most purposes than anything shorter. Once I got accustomed to the length, I wondered what I ever did before that!
