Favorite Things #29 - Shun Knives

One of the first things I got when I really started getting in to cooking was a Shun Chef's knife. I love that knife and also have a Shun utility knife and a paring knife. I know that the knives are expensive, but to me, they are worth it. I use a lot of different knives in my cooking but I always come back to my Shuns.
I have the best husband and Mother In Law in the world!!!

Do you have a favorite brand of knife?

  1. That is a NICE knife. I usually just use my standard Henckels chef's knife--going strong for 15 years now!

  3. That's a great looking knife. I don't have one brand, I like a few for different things but my favorite knife is my kyocera ceramic paring knife. I love it.

  5. Good knives are worth what they cost and make cooking so much easier. I have several different brands that I like, mostly Henckel.

  6. I've got a set of Wusthof and one from a company called Chef's Toolbox in Australia. Can't cook without a decent sharp knife. :)

    I don't know Shun knives, tell us more.

  9. I think with knives, you certainly get what you pay for. I have crappy low quality steak knives, but I have a few expensive knives in my collection that I handle with care! Two serrated, and two not. I love those things. If my house were on fire I would grab those, my dutch oven, and my food processor for sure.
