Hate to say it, but that isn't knife porn, this is knife porn. http://yamashoinc.com/supply/kitchen...ered/index.htm
And the sad thing is that's only equivalent to say, a Corneliani. To reach Kiton level you need to go to knives like Carter, Watanabe, Itou, Takeda or Hattori. But in all fairness to the OP these are all japanese style knives, not the european style. Those new Wusthof look a lot nicer than their other lines.

I wish I could say I had knives from some of the makers I listed above, but I currently use knives from the Shun Pro line. Absolutely fabulous, beautiful, sharp as the dickens (I once cut through my fingernail to the bone without even feeling it while using my nakiri. I only noticed what happened when the knife got stuck and stopped moving.) and hold an edge an amazingly long time. Definitely worth a look if you have the chance.

It's pretty, but I like a thumb assist on my knives. ^^^ "No it's not, that's a spoon." "I see you've played knifey-spoony before..."

Actually, you are ALL wrong. THIS is a knife.


Now, in kitchen knives... those Wusthof do indeed look nicer than their traditional models. Anyone seen them up close?

Thumb assist?

I know at least 3 ways to kill a man silently with that Fairbairn dagger, btw. Yay for our public libraries!

I just searched "kill a man with knife silent" in google at work. Hope that doesn't get me red flagged...
