There is nothing wrong with an eclectic set, so long as they are sharp. Nothing is more dangerous that a dull knife. Look to Chef'sChoice for a good (electric is best) sharpener.

The Zwilling Four Star 6 set is a decent value set, though the 8 set has been lower for $168.
Good price on the 8 piece setwarnpeace wrote: ↑ ... I linked a good Zwilling starter set. It's on sale for $180, usually $400.

Nah, there are 1-man knives that are forged. Nowadays, forged vs stamped isn't a defining indicator of quality. The forged Henckels International knives are a good example of that. Also, Global knives are stamped, but those knives are very high quality.

Using your logic, why would you even buy this set when you can pick up a set of Amazon Basics knives for much cheaper? The quality of the knives wouldn't be much different. These knives just look prettier. Also, restaurant grade knives are much better than these "forged diamond" knives - using the Henckels yellow handle knives or Victorinox knives as an example. You're taking the comments in this thread and exaggerating them to laughable proportions with your analogy.daveinsurgent wrote: ↑ Lot of people commenting on what comes out to $100 for a full set of knives that the average home cook probably would do just fine with - and you can easily return - and let's be honest, most of us are gonna throw these in the dishwasher or otherwise abuse them.
Maybe provide a bit of evidence or analysis for this. It's not about whether there are better knives.
EVERY single knife mentioned in this thread thus far has people you can find saying "It's crap, never use it".
I'm willing to bet 99% of RFD users could never tell the difference between two knives in a blind test (good luck conducting such a thing
The logic that the knife zealots use is similar to everything else. Never buy a speaker unless it's $5000. Never buy a TV unless it's $10,000. Never buy a car unless it's ?
Seems less about facts and more about wanting to be first or earliest to say "oooh that's not good enough look how much more I think I know than you"
If you want to suggest a knife to buy, please list the last 10 meals you prepared with it in November, or how many years you've worked as a professional chef. (Even then, many of them just use whatever comes from a restaurant supply company, it's only really fancy pants ones and ones that are being paid as part of a marketing initiative who go after these knives that boast about how much better they are than restaurant grade)

I'm not saying items don't have different quality. There's diminishing returns and preferences that affect every purchasing decision. Saying there's no point in spending $100 because you could spend $600 is silly. Especially because the fancier ones are often less forgiving.ocisnicola wrote: ↑ Using your logic, why would you even buy this set when you can pick up a set of Amazon Basics knives for much cheaper?

Most people just need a Chef or Santoku knife, a bread knife and a pairing knife.
