Croeso! Your menu looks good!
What other knives do you use?

Welcome to the forum. In the future there a cheaper places than kin, i find them ***kin expensive :D
If you havent already i'd check out Jon @JKI's (has a sub forum here) sharpening video series for some pointers on how to approach sharpening the knives, and if you have any questions ask away.

I'll have to try and stop by next time in north wales

i got kin now and am happy ! as for my other knives i do spoon carvin in my spare time( being welsh!) and theres a company called mora so i bought these carving knives for wood and they also had kitchen ones . they are a bit industrial with colour coded handles and the steel is good but that is why i splashed out on my upgrade ! i wanted something a bit more tactile in the hand and something with a thinner blade .
trust me i spend every day doing alot of prep work ! i wanted the best ! we do alot of weddings and functions hence the menu is not as big as we would like but we deal with alot of covers ! i will have allok at the other ones ! i wont need anymore for a while i aint sharpen these new ones up yet .
