View Full Version : Good knives-suggestions needed
12-30-2007, 11:43 AM
I have some extra christmas money and would like to buy a good chef size knife. I have a knife set which is very average and I have a couple of smaller decent knives from pampered chef. So I want a good bigger sized knife of course for cutting fruits and vegtables and young coconuts. So I would like to hear from you guys of what you think and experiences.
I really love my stainless steel Global knife, made in Japan. Not sure whether you can get them in the US but they're super-sharp and great to hold.
It's a good idea to go to the store and ask to hold some, because the size and weight is really important -- it must feel right for you.

Dh bought me a ceramic knife by Stafford off of overstock.com. I love it. It's so shape that I am afraid of it. LOL!

wait-never mind! Sorry I missed the part about using it for opening coconuts. You would never want to do that with a ceramic knife.

For my young coconuts, I bought a butcher knife made by Henckels. Works great.

I also love my ceramic knife for every day use. For opening the coconuts I've got a cheap one with a very sharp edge near the handle. That does the trick easy enough.

I wouldn't think you would want to use your good chef knife on a coconut. I love, love, love my anolon knives sold at B,B and beyond. They are so perfectly weighted, it's like a dream come true it the kitchen. I do want a ceramic knife for lettuce, how is it?. I have a big old meat cleaver if I want to do a coconut.
