Had a wonderful experience this morning at Korin purchasing my first "real" knives. I'm just a regular home cook, so I didn't go too crazy:

Knives that I was considering

Getting my new knives sharpened! I plan on leaving the sharpening process to the professionals... for now, at least :) {please let me know if I should delete this picture, Mari!}

Pretty boxes

My purchases: Misono Molybdenum Peeling Knife, Korin Special Inox Orange Handle Gyutou (210mm), Togiharu Nickel Damascus Nakiri

I diced some potatoes as soon as I got home with the Nakiri - I love it! It felt a little heavier in store than what I'm used to (just some inexpensive KAI Pure Komachi and Kyocera knives), but it only took me half a potato for it to feel very natural. I'm super happy with this purchase! I cook mostly veggies at home, so I think I will get a lot of use out of this knife.

Here's a macro of ~1cm potato dice. I'm so amazed at how sharp the edges of the potato are! :D

Looking forward to using my knives more :)

I love the look of the Suisin. The nakiri is a beast :)

Oh my goodness thank you so much for your post! It was great meeting you Sunday. I'm so glad you're enjoying your knives. Please let me know if there is anything you need, I would love to assist. :)

At first glance, I thought you were saying the 9 knives in the pic were the ones you bought...after saying "I didn't go too crazy". Now that would have been the start of a very serious addiction :knife:.

3 is still a respectable haul, though! Welcome to KKF.

Thank you :D I will probably need some help determining when I should bring them in to be sharpened!

being a knife nut is an interesting addiction. But I love it.
