Knife Block or Single good knife as a wedding gift?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So my best friend is getting married soon and I wanted to give them a wedding gift. I know some people give knife blocks but I've always been of the opinion that a good chef's knife is all one truly needs, not to mention it will last a long time - hopefully much like their marriage.

Which do you think would be the better present?

Mangofreak,

  Reading your comment on having a good French knife made me think of my small Boos cutting with a built in knife holder or two. It's just a top load on the side of the board.

Many cultures view it as bad luck to give a knife/knives as a gift.
MOST Americans think "more is better". But ANY experienced prep cook/line cook chef will tell you that sets are marketing tools that include blades you'll probably never need in real life. Personally, I would rather recieve one spectacular knife than a set. But I don't think the average home cook would think the same way.

Regardless of the gift all our best wishes to the happy couple.

Mangofreak,

this is the one I received as a gift and I really like it. You can buy your own French knife.
