I think I would have stabbed him....at least a little.

I lived in an apartment a few years back with a small group of people, I was looking for my favorite santuku and couldn't find it, figured someone washed it and put it some place other then the magnet strip...like 5 minutes later one of the girls staying with us walked in the door carrying my knife..when asked what she was doing outside with a chef knife she said they needed it to cut some rope that they had used to tie something down with, I ended up yelling at her enough to make her cry

There is a Henckels 7 Piece Knife Set for sale on Amazon for $63.00. This sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I have noticed that the newer Pro-S line is not the same as they were a few years ago, less "hefty" IMO

Yes, mine are less hefty, which is nice...arthritis and Carpal Tunnel are not your friends when trying to wield a hefty knife.

I have a Henckels knife block set (not the Pro S) that is probably the single best cooking equipment purchase I ever made. I had picked out a $150 Henckels knife block set at Bed, Bath & Beyond but they were out of stock so the manager offered me the $200 set at the $150 price, and ended up being $120 after use of a 20% off coupon. I spent easily that much and more adding additional pieces to my set including a cleaver! (I'm scared to death every time I take out and use my cleaver. I treat it like plutonium!) My favorite knives out of the set are the 4" utility knife and the santoku (6"? 8"?). I couldn't find a smaller santoku in the same Henckels line so I bought a nice 4" Cuisinart santoku that does the job (and inexpensive too) but I'd pick up the same size Henckels if I ever find it, just because it's nice to have all matched knives, just a luxury.

I really like always having exactly the right knife for every kitchen cutting, carving and chopping job. It's a great labor savor and improves quality too.

I recently got a replacement for a Pro S 4-inch paring knife I originally bought a dozen years ago. I can see or feel no difference. Well, the new one doesn't have a broken handle.
