You lucked out on more than just the price. I bought a friend a knife set of Henkels (in a wooden block) as a wedding present and he told me later that they were awful, very dull. Apparently, knifemakers must make different levels of quality and what I bought wasn't top o' the line. :angry: Silly me, I thought a Henkel was a Henkel, a Global was a Global, etc.

Caveat Emptor.

And congratulations on your new knives.

If you like it, and it works well in your kitchen, then that's all that really counts (who cares what anyone else thinks). Congratulations on the new knife!

Wanted to update everyone on my knife situation.. I was just cutting up some veal bones for stock.. I got through them with some hacking involved.. When I was through, I noticed these huge dings in my blade.. This is not supposed to happen with a good knife right?

Should I just wait to the sharpener truck comes in front of my building or do I toss this..

This was the Tools of the Trade 10"chef.. Not a great advertisement..

:shock: Looks like that was a pretty crappy knife, Daniel. I would junk it. I like to use a big, heavy cleaver for cutting through things like veal bones, and a nicer Shun knife for delicate work.

-It is! That's why I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness!

I would just get some more veal bones, do some more hacking, and call the thing a serrated knife.

Hey don't throw that out, I see it as a future wire stripper. After a few more good hacks, just put little wire gauge markings above the dings and well, there you have it.
