Christmas gift - nice addition to my kitchen

I finally get to retire my shit set of knives. I have been using a set of knives from Bed bath and beyond I got for $15 on sale. Needless to say they were absolutely a piece of shit. Well the GF got me a set of Wusthof Grand Prix 2 knives from Williams Sonoma and an awesome sharpener for them. Can't wait to test them out when I smoke 3 slabs of ribs this week.

I've wanted a nice set of knives for a year or two, but had no clue where to start. Not having to pick them out was probably the best part of this gift.

Yeah, being a little bitch makes it tough to make decisions, luckily you have someone to help you.

Nice! Good knives make cooking so much more fun. I personally love the Santoku knives - looks like you've got one in that sizable collection.

Hey Stevie:

Nice set. Knives are like women....you have to stroke them every day! One of these days I'll show you how to use the steel to properly maintain the edges.

Happy Holidays!

Ditch the butchers block, use a magnetic strip on the wall (ikea) to hold your knives. Dr D gave me that tip.

giving a set of knives as a gift is a bad omen.

http://www.dantesknife.com/about.htm

Quote:
Knives as gifts

There is a folk lore or a superstition regarding the giving of a knife as a gift. If the knife is given to a friend, money must be exchanged as well. It is considered very bad luck to give someone a knife without exchanging money or the friendship will be cut by the knife. Because of this superstition, it is common that the gift of a knife will be given along with a penny, nickel or dime in the box with the knife so that the recipient can give back the coin, thereby saving the friendship from being severed by the giving of the sharp blade. The exact background of this superstition is unclear yet, even today most people will include a coin with the gift of a knife and request the coin be given back. The apparent view is that it is far better to be safe than sorry.
