hey /ck/, I wanted to make a complete set of cooking knives for someone, but I don't really know what knives you actually need, because I don't do a lot of cooking. when I do, I just use a chef knife for basically everything.
I see sets like this and I always wonder if people actually use all these different knives?

Well do you want a set of cooking knives for them or fucking not?

Cook's knife. Carving knife. Bread knife. Maybe a paring knife.

That's all you really need. Don't buy them in a set, unless it's just some sort of bundle deal being offered by a quality brand. You usually get better knives for the same price when you buy them separately.
>>
>>7345738
yes. but I see a lot of different sets of knives, with varying styles of knives. some have 4 or 5, some have like 20.
>>7345744
so you just use a few? I'm making them, so price isn't a problem
>>
>>7345752
Yeah. Most of the knives in those massive sets are just filler.

Sometimes I feel like a cleaver would be handy, but I make do without one.
>>
>>7345752
any pics of yer knives so i can laugh before i go bed bye?
i want to be surprised with your skill.
>>
>>7345766
I've posted them over on /k/ before. I'm on a different computer right now though, so don't have any pictures.
>>7345765
that's what I was figuring. so they'd probably be happy with just a chef knife, carving knife, bread knife, paring knife, and cleaver? or should I also make some steak knives or something?
>>
>>7345778
It would be a solid set. I'd be happy with that if they were decent.

I can't answer as to whether you should make some steak knives as well. That's up to you.
>>
>>7345784
alright, thanks m80
I might come back here in a few days after I make them and post pictures if anyone cares.
>>
>>7345722
if your buddy is planning to do any fish work, a good filleting knife is invaluable
>>
People who buy sets of knives start out using the chef's knife, move on to the next one when it gets dull, or they otherwise don't know what the honing steel is for, and then keep moving down the line until they're using steak knives to cut shit with.

Buy whoever a decent chef's knife and maybe a book on techniques, and how to take care of it.

Knife sets are for shotgun wedding gifts.

Santoku knife(三徳包丁) is an all‐purpose knife in Japan
This is perfectly enough for home cooking
>>
>>7345866
a santoku is basically just a Japanese chef knife. they accomplish the same thing, just in different styles.
>>
>>7345866
There's no reason to have both a chef's knife and a santoku, though.
>>
>>7345722
Chef's knife, butcher knife, paring knife, cleaver are the main ones. A good 8 inch chef's knife can do most tasks. I occasionally user my 6 inch knives, but they stay in the block more often than not. If you like fresh bread you need a good serrated bread knife too, nothing replaces.

The henkel kitchen scissors and streak knives are very nice too. The only fillet knife that came in my set was the one with the curved blade, never seen it before and only use it for grapefruit.
>>
>>7345934
Wow. Swype is retarded. It should read, the only FILLER knife.

Also nothing much replaces a good fillet knife
>>
>>7345870
The Japanese chef knife is the gyuto, which is basically a sexier French knife.
The santoku was designed for home cooks who buy nothing but packaged cuts of meat at the grocery store.

Before the gyuto they had a million and one specialised knives for meat, vegetables, and even down to specific types of fish.
>>
yeah, that is just east meets west thing
in Japan, they often say the origin is from the western kinfe
so i love santoku knife,
i think that is perfect style ^o^
