    I’m partial to Japanese steel...I use a Global Santoku and Chef’s knife.

    No interest in a full set, but I would like a Global pairing knife to complete my mini collection.

    We use Henkels serrated steak knives. Cutting on dishware is too hard on a straight edge, they dull quickly.

    I'm bringing life back to an old thread.

    My absolute favorite kitchen/cooking knives are my Old Hickory knives. Mine are old and have been used a lot. Old Hickory knives are still made today and are a very good value for the money. They are not pretty stainless steel knives but they will get the job done.

    I have the forged European knife sets and a bunch of Gerber's. But the most used are the Chicago Cutlery set from years back.

    Anyone looking for kitchen knives would do well to check out the online catalogs of A G Russell Company in Arkansas. They both import and manufacture great cutlery.

    Consider adding (later) a cleaver.

    We did without one for years, but now have a low cost ($40.00) one from Amazon and man oh man, wished we'd gotten it sooner.

    It must be soft metal as after each use I hit it a couple of licks with an Accusharp knife sharpener and bam, it's really sharp again.

    Yeah we got this one on amazon:

    It’s great for cutting thru bone.
    I’m surprised at both the sharpness, and how long it holds an edge.

    Plus it sorta matches my globals

    I’ve got a Victorinox set from Neiman Marcus that I got from my grandmother, it looks just like the one above. Razor sharp, and holds an edge.

    fwiw, spending a half grand on kitchen knives is a bit extreme.

    I have pretty much used the same Victoronix knives I used to cut meat in my home kitchen.

    Pronstar,

    Nice looking cleaver!

    Birddog,

    Well $500 in today's dollars ain't all that much.

    I consider that amount measures to 1 Glock unit.

    Relatively, inexpensive for some excellent kitchen knives.....

    I don't recall if it's been mentioned: Wash quality knives by hand, never in the dishwasher as it really dulls them and does them no good.
