Knife Thread

I’m in the market for a good, all-purpose chef’s knife. Meat, veg, whatever, I want to chop it. I have a knife set that’s a bit battered and I try to keep it sharp with a crappy sharpener thing but I think it’s just a placebo, they always seem to be too dull. What knife are you rocking?

Link me up, warny.

I really dream of one knife that can just do it all (and never gets blunt). James Martin used to use this small cleaver thing for everything on Saturday Kitchen, but I never found out what it was.

Got Globals - mainly to piss off @fidel_catstro.

Got a very nice IO Shen Chefs Knife 165mm
Had it 10 years. Its brilliant.

an oldie but a goodie:

The master knife

I’ve got this one:

use it for everything and it’s always sharp. Got it from John Lewis with a couple of Victorinox paring knives as a set and they’re the only knives we use.

Can recommend this.



How can it always be sharp? Just not possible. You haven’t noticed the gradual journey to bluntness.

Got this


In blue though. Obvs.

Lost count of the number of times I have sliced fingers open when I am doing the washing up

There’s a bloke down the road from me who sharpens knives for about 20p each. He also cuts keys and sells a range of bags. The walls of his shop are covered in pictures of old boxers and 50s film stars for some reason.

Looks a bit… small.

I’ve got a magimix now and try and use knives as little as possible.

Basically everything is just grated or very finely sliced now.
