Why would you pay all that money for knives you'll never, ever use?
Why would you pay all that money for knives you'll never, ever use? And a 10" from Henckles from any decent online retailer will not run you more than $100. You need that and a pairing knife, that's it. Don't buy a bunch of shit you don't need.
I have this set (about 15 years old now) and while they have held up OK, I have never loved them. They went dull fast and in my pre-stone days, I used one of those plastic dealies to sharpen them. Never worked. Then I got the Chef's Choice electric. It works, but takes a lot off the knives. I don't really care so much any more, I am just glad that I found the way to put an edge back on the suckers.
This is the tool for sharpening a knife.
No, that is a steel for realigning the edge. It does not sharpen the knife.
Does it matter, what it is called? It is used by chefs and once a year knives are sent to professional sharpening. Anyway.
It has a different function. It does not sharpen; it realigns the edge. This is useful and necessary, very often. But eventually the edge will wear down and the knife has to be sharpened. The steel can't do that. At least, it can't do it well.
I use a boning knife, a filet knife, a bread knife and a slicer all the time. I sometimes use a tourner knife. The little serrated tomato knife occasionally comes in handy.
