Default Metallic - Sharp

one of my favorite knives, a Wusthof Santoku

sometimes people ask if knives like these are worth the cost (it's about $75) instead of lecturing them on hardness of steal and it's ability to keep an edge better than soft stamped metal I just show them how perfectly balanced they are, this knife is resting on my finger, I am holding the camera with the other hand, this balance makes it a joy to use

I recommend buying them individually, it makes the cost a little easier to swallow and you don't end up buying knives you don't need, in reality you only need a good chef's knife to start.

just for clarification the first shot is submitted for the challenge, the second is just extra.

Nothing better than a well balanced knife.

We are still using the set of engraved Victorinox that The Culinary Institute of America gave my husband when he started school there in 1977. They traveled the world with him as a young chef.

We also have a few Wusthof Pros that feel wonderful when in use.

My mom has a chef's knife that is from my dad's mother, my grandmother (I'm nearly 40) that was sold by LL Bean back in the beginning of the last century (LL Bean is from 1912). Most likely as with other LL Bean gear it was manufactured by someone else. The knife is one of those old high carbon blades and it is to this day a great knife.

Point being a good knife will last a life time or three.
