Okay guys, I need some help. My wife wants new kitchen knives. I want
American made with carbon steel. I bought one Old Hickory on ebay to
try out (still in transit). What do you think about Old Hickory? Any suggestions
on other brands?

Thanks,
Trey

I was thinking the same thing. Our kitchen knives really suck. Let's have some suggestions for good knives.

TJ, our kitchen knives would have to be modified and reground to improve to the point where they only suck.

If I were buying kitchen knives right now, it would be the ceramic blades from Boker:

Hey Murph,
I only have one, the Boker CX, IIRC. It's the smallest, cheapest one they make. I use it for slicing maters, taters, and the like. I've only had it a few weeks, but great so far.
I guess if it ever gets dull, I'll have to send it to TJT for maintenance...

I think that Sears had a set of "As seen on TV" for about $20, maybe I'll try them.

But WAIT! If you order now ... :lol:

note: I have absolutely no connection to the knifecenter, other than as an occasional customer.

Try perusing the website of AG Russell. He carries many lines of very good kitchen knives, but they are not cheap. For most of us, the kitchen is where we use our knives the most. And have the sorriest junk. I have a mix.

Lots of range in price here. Lots of range in quality.

I'll try to get some pictures of my kitchen knives.

CUTCO are made in the US. I looked them up on the web and found they are very EXPENSIVE! but really good knives. I just lucked out ::ds:: and bought the small 5 piece set at a flea market for less than $10. I couldn't believe the retail price and doubt many regular folks would pay it. even for US made product..Course you with the big deep pocket could fo it ::nod::

Old Hickorys are good but watch for the rust if you do them in the DW or leave them with moisture on the blades.

I have a couple 'blocks' of Chicago Cutlery. Some of them really hold an edge well and then some aren't as good. I just like the husky feel of the big oak handles. Not so the boss. She loves those Cutcos.

Some web sites do not want posters to put links to stuff on e-bay so if I am out of line please take this down. . .this seller has several interesting items and down at the bottom of the first page 3 Cutcos

I've got a set of J.A. Henckels Professional S series knives .... had them for over 15 years and I'm MORE than pleased with them.

I just sharpened the entire lot of them the other day and honed them so they are sharp to the point of shaving hairs off my arms.

In use just about every day as I enjoy cooking. Not sure what the prices are now but January is usually a good month to find discounts offered on the S series.

I bought the wife a set of Henckels International Classics from Costco. The "International" in the title means they are not made in Germany - the "Classic" style is made in Spain. We have had them for about 4 years or so, and been really happy with them. They aren't as expensive as the German made Henckels, but they feel real solid in the hand, have a full tang, riveted handles, etc. and get hair popping sharp. The wife wasn't too excited about them when I first came home with them (we had "early marriage" knives from 20+ years ago, which she thought were "good enough"), but now you can't pry them out of her hands - she loves her Henckels.

Here's the 8" Chef's knife on Amazon....where you can read some reviews.
