History - I love to cook. I'm not terribly adventurous, more of a recipe follower but it's still a lot of fun. however, it's more often than not just for my 3 person family.
Equipment - ummm, yeah....i bought some freaking Ronco knives about 10 years ago. needless to say, I don't use any of them except when I really want to hack into something.
- I thought I was really going uptown when I bought a Henkel's premio 8" chef's knife
wants - I have $350 in gift cards to Bed Bath and Beyond and I'm looking for suggestions on the best knives that I can get there. I have my eyes on the Global's and Shun's which don't seem overly popular here. I'm sure whichever one I get, with my limited experience, will blow my mind.
I like the handle better on the Shun, the Global seems like if my hands got messy they would slip all over the place.
I'm not opposed to blowing the whole $350 on 1 or 2 knives so if that ridiculous looking ken onion thing is actually a good knife then let me know. I'm just kind of looking for the best knives I can get at BBB
In hindsight I wish that I had asked for cash instead of GC's because the Mac seems to be universally loved.
