Knives, a begining
I like knives. I have found, that, even as an amatuer, a good, sharp knife makes cooking much easier. Using an 8" knife, I can do almost anything I need to in the kitchen. Although I started off using Wustoff knives, I have now switched entirely to Global Knives. I use two reguarly, the G2 Chef's knife and its "Japanese" counterpart, the G7. I bought both at Zabar's (www.zabars.com) which is near my house (although they ship) and have an excellent selection. The knives are very similar, although I have a slight preference for the G7. All global knives are "asymetric" and require special equipment to sharpen them. This is available anywhere you get the knives. I personally like when my friend Eli comes by with his Japanese whetstone and sharpens them for me, but this only happens on special occasions.
