I've always had dirt cheap knives, looking at buying a decent set. I'm pretty much settled on the set I'm getting but I'd like to hear your thoughts. I cook prolifically for myself and friend and really value quality implements.

Set pictured, Wusthof Ikon 8 Piece. Admittedly I probably wouldn't use the carving knife but I would try and sell that and replace it with a filleting or boning knife.

An ex girlfriend lived by the theory that if at $1 per use she couldn’t get the value of an item it wasn’t worth it, I still live by that and am willing to pay that much for knives.

I have a set of Shun classics, they are amazing and I absolutely love them. The blades are razor thin and very strong and glide right through just about anything. They're made of VG-10 steel, which is very durable, highly corrosion resistant, keeps an edge really well, and as an added bonus the "Damascus-style" layering makes them really beautiful. I've had these knives for probably seven or eight years now, I've never honed or sharpened them, and they still work wonderfully.

The best advice I can give when shopping for knives is to do your research on the exact kind of steel used, and avoid anything with microserrations.

I should also mention, don't bother with stamped knives, they're pretty much universally dogshit. Always buy forged knives

I have a midrange ikea knife with a full tang and it's actually pretty good. I use one of their carbide sharpeners too which I know is heresy but it works for me. $20 all in and this arrangement has been going strong for 5 years.

call me a plebeian, shill, or whatever, but ikea actually sells good kitchenware and small nick-nacks like clocks, lamps, etc. their furniture is garbage made from cardboard that falls apart if you sneeze on it, but their smaller items are good. i got some nice bowls and leftover containers from there, cheap too

The materials and quality in a knife is far less important to me than the shape
I speed cut and multipurpose with knives. Therefore it must have a comfortable length and curve to rock with. It's mostly personal preference but I tend to like a mid length French chefs knife with extra curve on the blade as opposed to straight. Any metal can be kept sharp if you have the hand for sharpening yourself. Full tang is mandatory

This is an excellent example of a fine knife. I would only need a pairing knife in addition to this and I could cook anything

buy a big ol chefs knife - thats your "set"

my go to is a mega cheap one called Kuma, amazon used to sell em but seems to have recently stopped. phenomental £20 knife. super even for 80. my brother got me a shun recently for christmas but i find myself hesitant to use it for anything other than, like, separating a large piece of meat, slicing raw fish, stuff like that
