What do you guys think of the Chicago Cutlery brand??
They seem like decent knives.
just my 2cents... (and I am NOT a knife-nut )
as a young home cook I was given a set of chicago cutlery in a block, I thought that I'd died and gone to heaven.
Here's the rub, they don't hold an edge for sqwat!
You get what you pay for!
Today I have:
(all purchased open stock, on sale!)
THAT"S IT! and I could probably do without the last two.
Go to different shops that carry a large array of brands, ask to try them, see what's comfortable in your hand as well as your wallet.
Put some money aside each month until you can buy the GOOD knives that you want, and you really don't need alot of them, or anything fancy-pants, a chef's knife and a paring knife could rake you far. (oh and something to sharpen them with too )
