what about something like this

Postby wild zebra » Mon Nov 29, 2010 4:08 pm

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWAX:IT Now I see alot of stuff on ebay lot's of vintage carbon steel like this http://cgi.ebay.com/SUPERB-Vintage-Saba ... 43a2dfbfd5 I can see the difference in quality and I know nothing about vintage Kitchen cutlery as far as what names are what. I go simply by "that's expensive it must be good". I hate to rely on just that, the cheapy appears to be CS so it should hold a nice edge just needs a little cleaning. I've just been itching for a decent Kitchen knife and I'm always looking for a deal. Should I just buy a decent 150 dollar knife or would this cheapy suit me well? Thanks

A compromise between the two extremes is http://www.knivesplus.com/OLD-HICKORY-KNIVES.HTML or, if you want just a single knife http://www.knivesplus.com/OLD-HICKORY-KNIVES.HTML

Thanks, I have seen those and have thought about buying them. They just don't have a "chef style" knife, but I may pick up their butcher knife though, Thanks for the links.

You can also "keep your eyes open" at flea markets/yard sales there are some great bargains to be found :idea:

I sure will, I will just have to educate myself a little more on what names to look out for!

As a knife collector it seems strange for me not having a nice kitchen knife.
However I have done some homework on culinary knives and as Vagrant mentioned the Old Hickory knives are just flat-out the best for the dollar there is.
But if you don't mind spending a little cash for a nice knife then I highly recommend the Japanese knives.
You can spend 40 to 4000 on one but I figured I would spend in the 80 to 120 range and found this jewel to be a great buy. It says "Sushi" but it basically a 9" "slicer" and would do just about any job in the kitchen.
I make a brisket and that's a big piece of meat so this knife is what my sights are on right now.
You only need two kitchen knives,a big'in and a littl'in.

Some other choices:

http://japanwoodworker.com/product.asp? ... t_id=13188

This one may be my choice or the first one I listed. Look around on this site,they have some of the best prices on these knives.
