I bought a Shun Santoku and paring knife combo. Still have not used the pairing knife at all, i prefer the cheap house paring knives. They are rugged, they are plentiful and I'm comfortable using them fast and efficiently. The shun paring knife is very pretty though.

Cook to Chef: "Man, sometimes I wonder how you do it, work so much that is" Chef: "26 days in a row without a day off and I'm here baby! Ready to go!"
Dishes are created by chefs using there knowledge of food to produce thus product. Saying a dish is not "food knowledge" is like saying "This guy built this car from scratch, but its not "car knowledge", doesnt make any sense.  Once you start building the epic dishes that have never been done before, people understand via food knowledge why they work and how you got it to that point.

Theres no stealing in this industry. Food knowledge is meant to be shared 
I could put all the sliced cheese on a half sheet pan. Wow I never thought of something so simple! Thanks!
