OK. I think I'm gonna puke.
Rick ... Nobody needs to read any minds. You just need to read and comprehend the posts. Nowhere did I say anything about "sharpness". It was all based on the point that I have/use very inexpensive knives. (They just happen to be very sharp, but I said nothing of that.) I took offense at the comment (wisecrack) following my post:I returned the cracking wise with my (rhetorical) question/statement about how does any dish taste any better when prepared/cut up with...
Mano, since we're being so direct and sharp here (no pun intended) I'll be happy enough to explain what I actually said, since it appears that you have reading and comprehension skill difficulties. I know all about "sharp knives". My point had noting to do with "sharp knives". My point is that all things being equal, "sharpness" and such,  the cost of a knife has nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of food put on a plate. The guy using a $1000 knife, made by any...
OK. I'm working on understanding a concept here. Maybe someone can help me. I do understand things like spending your own hard-earned money on whatever it is that you like. Easy enough. I also have a good grasp on the idea of everyone being entitled to their own opinion. Yeah ... I know and exercise that one well enough. I'm very curious though, if there is some way, I mean there must be because so many people speak like it's religiously carved in stone, to make food taste...
Since around 2000 I drove the Jeep; a 1995 Cherokee Country. Then this spring, the frame rail on the passenger side rusted away. If we opened up the back gate one(1) more time the body probably would have folded in half. It had 350,000+ miles. This July I bought the Ford; a 1998 Escort ZX2 Sport. These pics are not of my actual cars, but they are visually accurate (except my Jeep had OEM wheels). Back in the days, when I was still living off of mommy, I had...
Here are pics of my 2 main knives:   I think you can find them both on "Clearance" for $10 each. LOL @ ME.  The Chef Knife is 1974-vintage. The santuko was a gift from my niece's kids. My third main knife is a $3 petty from IKEA.
LOL. Seriously?? Maybe somebody needs to leave the wisecracks at home.
In regards to knives ... Shun being the point of interest ... I don't think there is anything wrong with them. However ... I think you can get a lot more knife for less money if you look. I've never seen any in a pro kitchen, outside of Alton Brown's on TV. They're a well made quality product, they look very nice and do a good enough job for a home cook.
I had these: The La Scala The Heresy ... ... was the first, and only for a long time, KLIPSCH speaker to use a regular woofer instead of a horn. As far as "classical music" ... the Klipsch were, and always have been, killer for whatever they played. Extremely clean, and I would guess more efficient than anything else. The Advent Mini's that I use now are just fine. Particularly being that I live in a very small house. Also very clean, they put out nice solid sound...
