looking back i remember these "Chef Tony" knives. What a schiester and a two bit con artist. I wonder how many people bought those knives thinking they were god's gift, only to have them fall apart, rust, and chip and become dull......
oh boy thought i'd TTT this thread for nostalgia
He hawks them on "Ideal World" a shopping channel in the UK. He irritates me no end!
I've always bought Sabatier knives but the name no longer means what it did. There are some very cheap and nasty knives around claiming to be Sabatier.
If you haven't got a lot of cash to throw around I'd look at IKEA. A year or two back I was asked to teach a class of cooking beginners. I needed to provide the equipment and didn't want my best knives mangling so I bought a few cheap and cheerful cook's knives from the afore-mentioned Swedish shop, thinking it wouldn't matter if they were ruined and I had to throw them away. No such luck! They stood up to all the students could throw at them and they have become among my favourite knives in my kitchen. They won't last a lifetime, but then, neither will I and I have no grandchildren to leave them to, so who cares.
