Kitchen Knives Experiences

Was wondering what other members use for their kitchen cutlery, what they thought of them, and would they recommend them or purchase them again.

I’ve been using Henckles 5 Star Series for about 18 years now and while I like them I would probably look for something better if I was going to buy a new set. I like how easy they are to sharpen and the edge I can get on them. I like that they are robust and rust has never been an issue even when I wasn’t very kind to them. And I like the way they feel in my hands. I would like if they held their edge better, I frequently touch them up to maintain the edge even after light use and while I don’t mind I’d much prefer a stronger edge. I don’t like that they don’t always cut very well despite being very sharp. I’ve thinned out the metal behind the edge to help but wedging and snapping is still an issue with certain foods like carrots and squash (I’m thinking this is due to the knife’s grind and perhaps a thinner ground knife would suit me better). I’ve read the newer Pro Series is thinner in overall grind, wonder if that makes wedging and snapping less of an issue. Overall I’d say they’re good but not excellent (IMO).

I am using cold steel kitchen knives set from last 2 years and these are very good If I talk about my experience. Although now looking to sharpen their blades soon.

Re: Kitchen Knives Experiences

We have been using the Ontario cutlery since the 1960s. I used French’s mustard to produce a patina/rust proofing since acquiring the knives.

Due to family members not respecting my kitchen tools, I have a cheap Amazon Hampton Forge Tomodachi “titanium” knife set. $29.99
They work, come sharp as all get out, are easy to clean and resharpen when family damages them. The last knife set I had got the disposal treatment. Totally trashed 2 of them.

Re: Kitchen Knives Experiences

I have the Henkels also, and I notice the same thing. They can be sharp but not sharp enough for some tasks.

Looking back, I probably would have not bought a set. I would probably buy individual knives that fit each task better. I really only use two or three knives. Also, if you go into any restaurant, they aren’t using any kind of high-end knives or pans, and they do fine.

For the most part, the high-end kitchen knives are there to look good and match. I don’t really care about that anymore. Some like to have sets, but my next knives will probably be a mix of different brands.
