realistically, you prob only really NEED two knives - a chef and a parer...and i guess a cheap serrated bread knife wouldnt hurt....but, even more realistically, people like to have a bunch of knives, mostly because its fun...just think about what you do in the kitchen, and go from there

all my shuns were wedding gifts and are from the classic line....had i been buying them myself, maybe i would have a different collection (or maybe not)....anyway, i asked for a 8"chef, 7" santoku , 6" utility, and a parer.....i planned on just going with a cheap bread knife, but as a surprise also got the shun bread knife....love the knife, it works great, but i dont think i would spend the money on it

i know i cautioned about overlap, but i obviously have overlap myself....the chef and the parer are pretty self explanatory....the santoku was meant to be the wife's main knife, but remember that MORE is FUN so i also use it : ).....i just love the way the utility knife feels - very light and nimble...i mostly use that one for cleaning (NOT boning) chicken breasts, and my wife likes to use that for almost everything (go figure)
