Just thought I'd try to inject some life into this forum...

What's your favorite kitchen/chefs knife?
I love my two Mac knives. Cut like absolute magic, and are so well balanced.

I use Wüsthof knifes, I had to get them for culinary school. I dropped out but I use them because they are still in good shape.

Yeah. I'm trying to find decent knives for sushi and such
without breaking the bank of professional chef knives.

Did you attend the CIA (NOT the Central Intelligence Agency, or lack of with this current administration in charge)?

I use Henkels knives (twin cuisine collection). I got the ~12 piece chef's set when I got married. Their carving kit is nice as well. They are very nicely weighted and low maintenance.

10" Shun (KAI) Chef's Knife
10" Victorinox
Wustoff Trident Filleting and Boning knives
And Various other Victorinox Paring, turning and others.

I almost solely use my Victorinox steak knives in the kitchen, for everything.

The Henckels TWIN Cuisine 8" Chef Knife is my current favourite but I have a set and they all have their purpose.

Henkel or Trident or gtfo.

(although those ceramic blades made by what's-it-called are really really decent)

At work I use a set of victorinox , they are hardy, sharpen well and keep their edge a decent amount of time.

I had to buy scinelli for school ... i hate hate hate them ... atm they are my home use knives.

I got a ceramic knife the other day as a belated x-mas gift ... i like it so far will tell you more once I break it in ....

I would love to buy a Damascus blade someday... though my next purchase will probably be a 6 inch utility or chef knife vixtorinox wooden handle

We actually only have like 3 kitchen knives. They aren't too great. Obviously in the market for a nice set. Nothing to elaborate. Looking for something around $100ish. Any suggestions?

victorinox all the way best bang for buck ..... 10 inch chef blade will run you about 60ish canadian plastic handle you can shell out a little extra for a wood handle (which in my opinion is well worth it!!)

I'm quite attached to my Henckels 5" and 7" Fine Edge Pro Santokus, I bought them to use at work (in a kitchen), and I like them enough that I'll use them at home too. They're not expensive or fancy by any means, but they retain a sharp edge for quite a while, and slice with very little resistance. Next I'm going to look for a chef's knife between 9" and 11".

Like others, we have Wustoff, but you need to sharpen them to keep them effective. I got them when I worked @ Crate & Barrel so they were deeply discounted. I think the Henckels are probably the same quality but come cheaper. Currently a knife in our rotation is a 6 dollar job we got @ kroger, so really just go w/what ya got unless you know what you are doing.
