So I have been learning to make everything from scratch in the 15 or so months I have been busting my butt learning to prep. I've learned a lot, perhaps even doubling my knowledge of cooking.
I have been using a set of revere knives very similar to this: http://www.builderssquare.com/xp_12073652-...et_FR61107.aspx
So Sunday I bought a super nice set, one that will last me the rest of my life. Here they are.
Yes, it was a LOT of money. But...for the rest of my life, I will be set. And I worry that I will not be able to do such a purchase in a year or five from now.
I think perhaps this set would have been quite good enough:
Half the price and still a very nice set of knives. I'm not sure I'd be able to tell the difference between the 2 sets...I am a good cook, but I do not consider myself a chef.
I get them tomorrow. We'l see if I send them back for the ones half the price.
A good set of knives is very much something I need, but did I need the best of the best?
