Fooled me, the blade surface looks a lot like one of my grand dads old crosscut saw blade knives. I wrongly assumed you probably made the blade similarly.Found in the trash, wow, lol. nice score.

Hello,

We are fed up with buying knives and chucking them after a year or two when the handles fall apart and the edges become unsharpenable Japanese knives.

Can anyone suggest a decent knife set/company to look at?

I've used Taylors (Rubbish handles), Richardson's (Carbide treatments were rubbish)

Brands that have caught our eye are Zwillings and Wusthof. I have a pair of Wusthof scissors and I am very impressed with them.

I got to see some Zwilling knives. Wasn't too chuffed with the Gourmet range (felt cheap) but the 4* range felt and look good.



I am not after Gordon Ramsey quality here (the chef, not his brand lol) but want something that will last.



Suggestions?

Victorinox (made in Switzerland) are very good for the price and the plastic handles should last pretty much forever. The steel is not as hard as the typical Japanese steels and will need more sharpening. The wustoffs and zwillings made in Germany are fairly similar in performance to Victorinox but usually cost more, except for the "international" ones made in China, which do not seem to be as good.
