If you have a really awesome/sharp knife set what brand is it? How long have you had it? and how much did it cost?



TIA

Last Christmas my hubby got me a knife set by J.A. Henckels and he didn't give me a specific number but from what I see online I would guess between 350-450 for the 6 piece set (4 knives, 1 block, 1 sharpener) I absolutely love them. They say to sharpen after each use but I'm a slacker and haven't sharpened them yet, started noticing about a month ago that they weren't quite as sharp as they used to be so I probably will do it soon.

I have a really nice Henckels knife set from Macy's that we've had for 8 years. We got it on sale for about $300 and it was worth it because they've lasted and are still in excellent shape.

We have a Henckels set and Wustoff set. Both are very nice. I don't have to sharpen often at all.
They range in price depending on what kind of set you want.

I cook for a living and most of my knives are GLOBALS - I prefer asian style knives (these are made in Japan) - they tend to be more lightweight and less bulky than european style knives. These are ideal for me because I do a lot of precision cutting at work and the lighter knife saves my joints.

I buy my cutlery piecemeal (I have some F.Dick, Wustof and Tojiro brand knives) but you can get a 3 pc starter set for just under $200.
