Favorite Knife or Knives

Okay i know this one has probably been asked about a thousand times before but I am just way to lazy to look through all 25+ pages of threads.
Mine would have to be my wusthof grand prix 9cm pairing knife. I know alot of people will say global, and i like them too, its just that my wusthof has always stayed sharp.

I have 2 favs at the moment... both are Wustoff Classic. My 6" chef's knife and 5" boning knife. The small size of the chef makes it almost a utility knife, and I use it for most everything. The boning knife is also a great utility knife (and it bones pretty good too... )

I use a 10 inch Henkles chef's knife much of the time, I also use a global santuko and 6 inch chefs knife. I use a global paring knife as well. I find the edge on the global knives holds up very well and comes back to a razor like edge with a few draws across a diamond steel.

My favorite is the Global Chef's Knife, 8". This thing floats in my hand. Wicked sharp. Some people really don't like the way it feels though.

Talking

HAHAHHA MJ and Mitch , if you seen my knife you would laugh! I do not know what it is made of i think its carbon steel, and it has the steel the length of the handle with brass rivots. Its, about 12" Long, and sharp as a razor, Its a Butcher knife. I've never ever have sharpened it. I use it for everything. I mean everything. It was my mothers. It's definately an antique. But gosh its just feels good in my hands. You know?

I know what you mean! I love vintage carbon steel knives too! They are what I grew up with, and what I still like the best.

I have vintage carbon steel knives from various makers: Dexter Russell, Henckels, Wusthoff Trident, F. Dick, Lamson, and a few others. They are all wonderful knives.

But my favorites are carbon steel vintage Sabatier knives!

A story and a second.

Sabatier?! I've always heard those were really good knives. I have read a couple stories on those to i think, but the one that comes to mind is Anthony Bourdain. I think this guy is my favorite chef (though i have many), and i vaguely remember him talking about using these in the book Kitchen Confidential. I also think that the knives he has attached to the waste of his chefs jacket are sebatiers. Anyway i was wondering if anyone had a picture of one of them, that maybe they could post it on the forum along with a comment about the knife?
I thought it would be cool to tell you guys and gals a story behind one of my knives, A global chefs knife thats 10 inches. Yes a little big for me but i actually got it for free at a banquet i was helping out with on the second day. I actually met the owner of the global knife company in Japan!! Though i can't remember his name .

Julia Child and Jeff Smith used Sabatier knives too!

I don't have a digital camera, so I stole this photo off the web. But these are almost exact duplicates of my knives, and I am ashamed to say, the number of my Sabatier knives in my collection

Thumbs up Cool!!!

Wow thanks alot ChocolateChef for the picture, I envy you regardless of how many of them you have. I have also noticed that some look newer or different from eachother in the pictures. Do they have a new version of sebatiers?! I sure hope so! Anyway my lunch is almost over, i have to get back to school.
Adios.
