I am new here and am need of a new knife set. I have always just bought knife blocks for $50-$60 and they are great for a few months and then are crap. I would finally like to buy a nice set that actually is sharp and cuts like they should. I am just a stay at home mom and am just doing the basics. Today I typically just use 2-3 different knives in my block (this is primarily b/c I don't know how to use the different knives I have). Can anyone recommend a good small set that will give me 3-5 of the basic knives I need? Would be good to get some steak knives as well. Again, I don't need fancy professional chef style knives, so looking for something affordable.
Thanks for your help!!!
