Bought a new kitchen knife recently and it's completely changed my life. Never experienced such sharpness.

Anyone got a favourite knife? A knife set? Bobothy is a chef isn't he? What should I be looking for in a knife?

Tapes need not reply etc.

I desperately wanna get some good knives. My "set" at the minute is made up of different knives from different sets I've had over the years. A real mish-mash. Also want to invest in a knife sharpener.

Kind of unrelated, but I'll tell you what, you know you've reached true adulthood when you grow to really appreciate wooden spoons. For some reason, when we moved in, we didn't have a wooden spoon and boy did I miss if for stirring my sauces and gravy.

God this forum is so middle aged now.

Still, I’d rather talk about kitchen utensils than The Coral or Old Man Weller, thank you very much JP and Mahoney.

Mozz: Celebrity chef and famous suicide Anthony Bourdain did once observe that one high quality knife is all that a good cook needs

That and some ingredients presumably

Also being alive is one key strength of a good cook

something at which Bourdain has been severely lacking in the last couple of years

Yep, for a short span of time you could say he might actually be more a good meal than a good cook but now? Not even that

Bourdain was right. If you know how to wield it, one decent and sharp knife is all you need.

I've got two. Both German. One Zwilling Henckels and one WMF.

I went to catering college for 6 months when I was a young urchin with no prospects and they taught us the value of a good knife. Shame they didn't teach the values of respect and hard work as I got sacked from the hotel I was working at for telling the head chef to fuck off when he asked me to empty his bin.

Still, I now know how to chop the fuck out of an onion.
