We're talking abot a knives here GB, it's not some fancy Le Creuset versus an alluminum pot, it's just a knife. As the matter of fact my soft gripp white handle knives I think look better than Wustoff black handle knives and they are seating on the same magnet rack. When money is an issue looks are not that important, if you are getting good quality of course.

The posted was asking about more than just knives Charlie, but I was just giving information in general anyway.

I agree with you though. I would rather spend my money on something that functions better than something that looks nice and shiny.

Resaurant supply stores Hardware stores and Office supply stores are all dangerous places to let me loose, especially if I have a credit card with me.

Getting back to your original question about a set of knives CS - here is an "affordable" starter option, and available at your local Target store. J.A. Henckles makes some of the better high-end knives - forged steel made in Germany. Now, they have a lower-end line that is stamped and made in China. They will not be the same quality as the top-of-the-line knives - but they don't cost nearly as much, either. They should get you started and last you for a while (10 years or so - or until you can get enough experience to know what you want and can afford to upgrade).

I read the reviews (and almost fell off my chair laughing at a couple of them) and I wouldn't be scared away from buying them. You just have to learn to treat your knives correctly. Don't ever toss them in the dishwasher and don't just toss them in the sink - wash them by hand and then dry them by hand - like you would any good knife.

Just remember that there is a difference between cheap and inexpensive.

Cheap knives are no good.

Inexpensive knifes can be excellent.
