I know there are a lot of knife posts up there but i was just wondering how many knives most of you actually own? did anyone actually go for a set?
I know the standard- get a few basics- chef's, paring and bread but even though I do not own a set, and haven't been cooking for very long, have amassed more than that over the past couple of years. I have 8- a 6in chef's*, 2 3.5 paring, a 4.5 utility*, 4.5 multi-prep (impulse buy, but i use it for garlic and onions), 6 in utility, 6 in bread and a boning knife (a recent buy but it was priced so low i couldn't resist, but no i haven't used it much). retrospectively I probably could have gotten a good deal on a set...
the stars are the ones I use the most.
I can't be the only one here who impulsively buys things right?
as an aside, on my wish list (and which i plan to put on my wedding registry) are an 8inch chef's, a larger bread and a sontoku
