I think we'll start with the 8'' Chef's Knife and the 3 1/2'' Paring Knife that is sold as a gift set, along with a sharpening steele and knife block.

Thanks again,
I started with a small Wusthof GP set and added to it and have been very happy. I think the 8 chefs and paring knife is the perfect start for you.

Honing steel is a good idea.

A knife I use a lot (like others here) is my serrated bread knife.

The deed is done. I ended up getting the 8 chef, 3.5 parring knife and the 8 serrated bread knife, along with an oak block and honing steele.

Hopefully, they will be here this weekend, and we can try them out. We're cooking Chinese. I'll let you know how it goes. I do feel much better about this than dropping so much cash without knowing what I actually need.

I think you made a very good choice. Now you can spend some of that saved money on a decent cutting board
