These do look like very impressive knives.
I lived with someone who had a £500 set of them and they were just so good.
A santuko as your one and only knife, you maverick
find me a thing - I’ll chop it good.
Got some Joseph Joseph elevates cause I’m a cunt
Another vote for Robert Welch here. This is my go to knife (or maybe it’s the 14cm one): https://www.robertwelch.com/kitchen/kitchen_knives/signature_knives/signature_cooks_knife_12cm.htm
We’ve also got a longer one, but that doesn’t get nearly as much use.
I reckon Satuko is going to be the one for me.
Quite curvy, isn’t it?
I think the main reason we got married was to get people to buy us Robert welch knives.
Yes, but I like it like that - it means that the thicker, middle section of what you’re cutting is getting more knife than the easier edge bits.
Good for chopping but would’ve thought you’re best with a paring knife as a general purpose, no?
10 or 12cm, that would be my recommendation. I have Robert Welch knives and would second that suggestion
Edit: triple that
I got a whole Robert Welch cutlery set when I got married. It was months before we realised that what we had was the set that they make for Pizza Express.
really you want both, tbh.
Basically do everything with a 13cm Global except for carving & cutting bread and so on
Reckon you can get by perfectly fine with a good Chef’s knife (for the love of God go to a kitchen shop and hold them!) and a big serrated knife, to be quite honest
Your man Ramsay says feel and weight is most important – i.e. get down to somewhere you can see how they feel in your hands
