Knives to register for

Postby larrylong » Thu Apr 17, 2008 5:08 am

Ok, so getting Married in 4 months and we decided to go with Target as our gift registry. Now I know they do not carry "top of the line" knifes, but does anyone out there have any suggestions for a nice quality starter that "can" be picked up from Target, i.e Brand and such. I'm looking for a typical chef knife and then the whole set with steak knifes and such for the wife to use :D I was told I was not allowed a Glestain, which I was hoping for since I have had the privilege of using one of the chefs at work.

Was in Target last week and took a walk down the knife aisle. Nothing really caught my eye, but what I was looking for was a sharpening steel. I bought one and can report it works very well. J A Henckels is the name on the steel and also the name of the better knives I believe. Can't say for sure how good though, never used one.

J A Henckels produce good cutlery. They make at least a couple of lines. I suspect Target doesn't carry the top end. I have a few of their better knives; in use now for almost 40 years.

Henckels will be easiest to find :idea:
Two others worth consideration : Due Buoi and Russell [Green-River] :idea:
