I'm starting to look for a new set of knives. I currently own a set of Sabatier on discount from Amazon (bought for about $40, advertized as 90% off though there is no way this was a $400 set of knives). I want to get a good set because I do not want to be stuck buying them again in a few years - I want them to last a good long time. At the same time, I do not want to break the bank. So, my questions are:
- what is the best brand of knives? I am an avid home cook and they would get alot of use, do not want too much special care (just want to toss them in the dishwasher), want them to last a good long time. While they do not have to be professional grade, I want good quality.
- where is the best place to go for discounts? While I do want to buy high quality knives, I know they can get really expensive, so am wondering where I can find the best discount.
Thanks in advance!
