    Scrolling through the old Good Eats posts. Some good stuff in there.

    I have a set of Henckels that were in the $500 range. I also have several other pretty expensive knives. My go to knife?

    $13.88 for both at Sam's. These knives are the sharpest I have ever used and are easy to keep sharp if you have a good steel. I use a diamond steel.

    When I am cutting 100+ pounds of meat, these things make the job so much easier. I rarely use any other prep knife.

    Have a set of Henckels in the kitchen but when it comes to skinning, filleting fish on bloody decks, threatening neighbors... only the Bubba Blade will do. Bubba Blade does not fuck around. Smooth like mothers butter with a handle that is pure genius. Awesome balance and a blade that keeps forever. Quick run over the stone is all that is ever needed. They have a chef's knife, a whole assortment, but that is what the Henckels are for.

    This.

    I have never bought a set. I always go with single knives and I catch them on sale, but the restaurant supply knives, pots, pans, etc always hold up the best and they're the cheapest usually. I figure if it's good enough of a product for someone to stake their livelihood on then it's good enough for me to cook with, too.

    That was my rationale when I tried them for the first time. I was blown away at how good they were. Have never looked back. I now buy all of my pots and pans there too.

    I have a $5 paring knife with a cheap, plastic handle that holds an edge better than anything in my friend's kitchens. I bought it around the corner from Stumberg Lane close to Pocarello's. I'm not sure if it's open still.

    The picture quality is so poor you can't wven tell what brand the knives are. Could you provide a little more information on them?
