Seeing that mother-in-laws are the #1 reason for knife sharpening (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/13043-Contest?p=219109&viewfull=1#post219109), wanted see if anyone else has a mother-in-law knife.

Mine is a Shun classic santoku

Suisin Inox 240. Not a mother in law... Yet, but as we only make to Pittsburgh every other month or so to visit, it holds up well

A serrated Forschner knife and a polyboard! LOL. But seriously. Anyone who disrespects my knives gets my Forschner Fibrox.

Mine is here visiting, and is pretty much sticking with an old stainless Henckels steak knife and the wife's ~180 Myabi gyuto. So far we are all happy with the arrangement

Not quite 'mother in law' knives, but I have a couple old crappy stainless chef knives in the drawer for my daughter (19) to use. Luckily she's scared to death of the J-knives :scared4:

My MIL has her own knives, of which I'm responsible for sharpening... German profile Chinese stainless... Maybe I should buy her a fujiwara

Gesshin Ginga stainless chuka. No carbon steel blades for her... * shudder*... and she's used to using Chinese cleavers.

A block of Calphalon classic for our counter. German steel made in china. Oh how I would like to replace it but granite counter use + finding one in the dishwasher every now and then keeps me from upgrading. I get my enjoyment from using the coarse Edge Pro stones on them. I bought an ITK bread knife thinking it could replace the Calphalon but frankly I don't want to see it get abused so it hides with my traveling roll of knives.

Saw the MIL using the wife's Myabi on the granite countertop this morning... Two BoardSmith's were within easy reach

The Shun classic was my wife's knife as well (though I use it once in a while). She is now using a Sakai Yusuke 210mm SS, thanks to BST!

No mother-in-law knife here, but I do have a $10 china-made henckels in case my just-plain-mother ever comes by.

I don't understand this. Where in the H E double Hockey Sticks do people get this idea? Chopping boards exist for a reason. This just makes me mad reading this.

When we first got married, I caught my wife doing this with a shun 4" parer that I had just finished polishing a day or two ago. I was sufficiently upset about it that I brought her to a cutlery store and found a knife that she liked, so she'd stop messing with mine. Obviously, being newly wed and not wanting the gates to heaven close, I didn't freak out. I calmly explained to her how much the knives meant to me, and made a comparison that it would be like me dropping her guitars on a concrete floor. She hasn't done it since, which I very much appreciate.

I don't let guests use my knives, they are too sharp. The last guest that used my knives nearly cut a finger off. I warned them "Careful, that knife is probably a lot sharper than you are used to." They decided to test the sharpness on their finger...but they did it wrong and cut most of the way to the bone. I have a beat up 6" cutco santoku I let guests use :)

For sure that will cut. Curiously, in everyday language, it is called 'la veuve', the widow. It basically used to produce widows, though.

Fortunately my MIL cooked with cast-iron she inherited from her grandma, who inherited it from her mother. The thing is probably 80 or 90 years old. She knows how to treat cast iron pans.
