    I know nothing about quality, craftsmanship or just knives/cutlery in general. I am looking for a nice set of cutlery to give as a gift. The biggest knives used are paring knife, bread knife, Chef's knife and steak knives. A block and perhaps a sharpening stone would be nice as well. Price I wanna spend is about $100 to $150 max. Thanks.

    forschner is good too. wusthof is good but expensive. i think the best knife is a misono. you can shave your beard with that shit.

    The exec chef and his assistant in the kitchen i work at both use Messermeister. A quick search shows a 9 peice set for $400.

    I'm guessing you don't want that.



    My buddies dad from work does a lot of cooking and has recommended Henckles.

    I am a chef....

    I use forschner knives, they hold a edge for a long time and take abuse! Also very balanced and light.

    [​IMG]High carbon, stainless steel blades are hand finished in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen.
    [​IMG]Special tempering process is used to resharpen over and over again.
    [​IMG]Each Victorinox knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal.
    [​IMG]All Victorinox cutlery products are backed by a lifetime guarantee.


    :cool:

    I use a 8" chef knife 90% of the time. This is a knife that EVERY cook/chef should own!!

    ONLY $25 bux

    forschners are very durable. i picked up a set in cooking school and used the same 8" chef knife everyday at a restaurant & it took some beatings. still sharp til this day....
