    You generally only need a few knives. A paring knife, a chef’s knife and
    maybe a cleaver or a serrated knife

    Looked on the Shun website, each knife they sell can cost up between $200
    and $400 per knife! I’m sure they work superbly, but fuck that shit!

    I like how he ends it with ” you may or may not be qualified to use these
    knifes”.

    The quality of the video isn’t great, but the quality of the information is
    excellent! I already knew most of this, but having it laid out, what knife
    is used for what, is always a valuable thing to know.

    I don’t currently have a good set of kitchen knifes. I DO have a two-piece
    set of Kyocera ceramic blades, a santoku and a paring knife, and they do
    the bulk of my fine kitchen knifework. I have some cheapo kitchen knives my
    Mom clearly got on the Home Shopping Network — I will admit that I don’t
    treat them very well, but then, they’re not all that great to start with.

    I DO sharpen my own blades rather than send them out. I have a high-quality
    set of diamond sharpeners that I use on everything from pocketknives to
    slicers, and they work wonderfully to establish a good edge. I have a
    ceramic steel for honing, and it works just fine.

    I was looking at Wusthofs, but I think Alton may have convinced me to try
    Shun blades.

    So many unitaskers! For shame, Alton Brown!

    I love AB but I own 5 knives, 4 chef knives and 1 cleaver. They’re all
    Japanese made but not any “name brand”. I hate paring knives and my chefs
    knives are kept sharp and slice just fine. I also own a pair of heavy duty
    kitchen scissors (shears).

    I have a set of Shun knives and they are the best quality knives I have
    ever seen or used. Their quality is unmatched. Sharp as a razor.
