Yes. Are you really permitted to do surgery at home? I just went through my Dad's old Dr. Welby stuff; pocket holders for glass syringes, old bottles of morphine and some other drug in little glass viles that is no longer fda approved, a blood pressure thingy with enough mercury to kill an entire city of tuna... Many speculums for some reason!
Yes, in this sandbox, you have to reveal your stuff so we can convince you to buy more stuff. ;)
In rough order of acquisition:
Wusthof standard set
Sabatier chef, slicer, utility, parer
Kikuchi petty and guyto
Blazen honyaki and guyto
******** laser guyto
Ghessin Hide guyto
Shigefusa utility/fruit knife
Need something to break down smaller fish
On the list for Dave, Marko
Surgical instruments are useful for cooking, but mostly as scissors. Scalpels are small and go dull quickly
This "new" guy here, is a ringer, lol.

Welcome. Nice lineup of knives.
What kind of surgery?
Peripheral vascular. Like plumbing, only smaller.

Sooooo, did you serve it with some fava beans and a nice chianti???
Nice collection. Hope to get there someday.
Welcome Ben. Btw, I think you should have a maker here create some nice carbon scalpels for you. Nothing is more reassuring than a scalpel with a heavy patina from past protein cuts ;)
Carbon steel for this application just isn't practical. I wold talk to Devin about the possibility of stainless damascus scalpels in his feather pattern.

Welcome! Originally from the Berkshires in Western, MA here. Also, recently endured a considerable amount of 'scalpel' esque work at the hands of a surgeon. You'll enjoy it here!
