My wife only uses 3 knives
  • Serrated Steak knife =Paring knife
    Serrated utility/tomato knife=Petty
    Serrated Bread knife = Chef knife.

It drives me crazy. There is a small fortune in cutlery within hands reach.

Re: Petty knives for steak knives?

Right now my favorite steak knife is a spyderco mule. https://www.spyderco.com/edge-u-cation/mule-team-project/ It’s profile is great for a steak knife. I used the DP for a while but it’s flat profile isn’t great for cutting on a plate. From your list I’d likely go with Kanehide Bessaku Hankotsu 150...

Re: Need some advice with new knife care

Your knife is a “Sandwich”. So across the top is a layer of carbon steel in the middle. This will darken with patina over time. As long as there is no red rust its likely fine.

Re: Kohetsu line.... A thank you to Mark and Sue

Thanks for the write-up. As a home cook, I have no real idea how crazy it is for you guys. Now i know for sure i never want a HAP40 knife, I enjoy sharpening way too much. I'd have to start using the glass cutting boards my wife keeps buying (that i keep hiding) if i ever wanted to sharpen the thing...

I use a couple of the Spyderco mules in Maxamet as steak knives because they work well on ceramic plates. Edge retention in those conditions is great but sharpening is a lot more difficult than W2.
Funny. That's what i use my mule for as well.
