What is your dream 6 piece knife set?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Like the title says,

 

Thought it would be fun to ask... if you had to pick 6 knives, and price wasn't an issue, what would you pick, and why?!

Six sharp knives.   Because they are easier to use.

 

A chef, boning, bread, paring and a spare chef.  That's all I really need; I don't need 6.  Well, maybe a carving knife would be nice. 

 

What are your dream knives?

I carry a ( TojiroDP 8")gyutou, carving slicer ( Paderno 10"), paring(have a lit of paring knoves they disappear sometimes), bread ( no idea brand red handle was a gift), thai carving( dont know brand)and a scalpel. ( dollar store)

If price isnt an option, i. e someone else is paying: new ones haha.

Heres a good thread very similar:

I have my 6 piece "dream team" already. HHH parer, Del Ealy parer, Carter gyuto, Devin Thomas gyuto, Mac Superior bread knife, stainless CCK cleaver with custom handle. I have more, but those are my "go to" rotation.

Gawd, I wanted one of Devin Thomas's knives forever!  He just doesn't make enough of 'em.  If we're talking just dream knives I guess I'd like to have one from Bob Kramer just to sock away in a drawer, one from Murray Carter to use, one from Mark Reich 'cause he's a master of HT'ing 52100, one of the Ironwood Tanaka's, a Hattori KD while Hattori-San is still alive and maybe another Nubatama.

Oh mannn I wish I could buy some American makers. The established ones are out of my price range and still climbing in price. I'll say that kitchenknifeforum membership jumped from 3000 to 7000 in a year, that must be some indicator of how the high end knife market is growing. We have available more variety from makers than ever. If you think about it, all that was available from japan 15 years ago was just global and mac. Gyutos did not even exist before those.

My most expensive knife is a kochi sujihiki. Everything else is sub $120. Really I can't see myself USING anything too nice, I'd be too scared of uglying it up, someone dropping it, leaving it in the sink, theft etc.

I don't baby any of my knives.  Even my $800 Nubatama has to earn its keep.;)
