Carbon Steel Knives - Suggestions?

696 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  chefwriter
First off, I apologise if this has been beaten to death, but I was unable to find anything terribly helpful by searching.

Looking to replace some old, used up Zwilling stainless knives with a few Carbon Steel Japanese Knives. Primarily looking for a Gyuto ~8", Santoku ~6", Paring Knife, Slicer, and a Boning / Fillet Knife. Bonus points if you can provide some budget ranged options (you know, options to keep the total under $250, $500, $750, etc.). Mostly just looking for options in general, as I can't seem to find any carbon steel knives locally.

I love my collection of Sabatier, a few I got from I bought a Norton tri-stone 26 years ago, still in great shape. The knives work really well for me, sharpen easily, maintain an edge and I don't find the extra maintenance to be a problem. Should anything happen to them, replacements are affordable. I will allow that I may be missing out on not using the Japanese carbon knives but I can't really afford to find out by trial and error. Perhaps some day.
